“Dawn of Justice” Batman-Focused Featurettes
The first featurette above is the shorter of the two, and has Ben describing the magnitude of having two “iconic characters of comic mythology” starring in the same film. He also goes into more detail as to where Bruce is when the film begins, stating it’s a new take on the character, one that the many Batman films haven’t seen before. Though the way he’s describing Bruce isn’t new to anyone who has been tracking the progression of BvS since it was announced, it is interesting to hear Ben double down on descriptors like “older, darker” and “world-weary,” while Henry Cavill also chimes in, calling his adversary/future super BFF “brutal” and “unforgiving.” The second featurette below is a little more involved, as it brings in nearly everyone from the primary cast to discuss their characters.

NASCAR’s Hendrick Motorsports Event
Back in January, it was announced that Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP), in conjunction with DC Entertainment (DCE), has joined forces with 11-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports in a long-term program that brings together Hendrick Motorsports’ super hero drivers with the Super Heroes of DC Comics. The first joint program has now come to life with the unveiling of Jimmie Johnson’s No. 48 Lowe’s Superman Chevrolet SS and Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s No. 88 Nationwide Batman Chevrolet SS.
“This partnership will allow us to offer NASCAR and DC Comics fans unique experiences that tap into the storylines of our characters and the successes of these four world-class athletes.” — Brad Globe, president, Warner Bros. Consumer Products

Ben Affleck’s ‘Broken’ Batman
Ben recently did an interview with The New York Times. You can read the full interview below and check out a new photo of Ben from the interview in our gallery.
“He’s living in this gray zone,” Mr. Affleck said of his Batman. “He’s more broken, not slick. He’s filling the hole in his soul with these increasingly morally questionable nighttime excursions — fighting crime as well as by being this playboy.” With a chuckle, he added: “You wonder, is this healthy?”
On the morning of the Academy Awards, Ben Affleck was at my hotel door. He entered with neither the swagger of Bruce Wayne nor the bravado of Batman, just with a quiet apology for postponing this conversation, planned for the day before, when he said he’d come down with a migraine.
“It would have been a delirious interview,” he said through a hangdog smile. “I don’t know that it would have been good for either one of us.”
This is a feverish, perplexing time for Mr. Affleck, 43, as strange as seeing him stuff his brawny, 6-foot-4-inch frame into a cramped room, flop into a chair and stretch his legs across my bed.
