Executive producer Michael Uslan has ended speculation about the ‘how old is Bruce Wayne’ in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Uslan’s name has appeared on the credits of the Batman movies since Tim Burton’s 1989 flick and seemingly he reveals once and for all how old the Caped Crusader played be Ben Affleck will be.

Longtime Batman producer said:

“We’ve been through this I don’t know how many times already. Every time a director makes a creative, out-of-the-box-thinking decision on casting, it tends to get this. I remember even the Iron Man (2008) guys got it on Robert Downey Jr. initially. Of course, we got it intensely when another genius, Chris Nolan, chose Heath Ledger to play the Joker (in 2008’s The Dark Knight). And it was a huge outcry: ‘How can a guy who just played a gay cowboy (in 2005’s Brokeback Mountain) play the Joker? You’re going to destroy the greatest villain ever, this is going to be a laugh.’

“So, this has happened time and again, and it happened with Affleck. To go back to the original thought of Bruce Wayne in his mid-40’s, I think he’s going to be extraordinary.”

So there you have it, though many fans were already skeptical that the movie would portray Bruce Wayne at that age. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will reportedly take much of its inspiration from Frank Miller’s graphic novel “The Dark Knight Returns” finale.

On another Detroit video clip below one can see the greying temples of the Caped Crusader that had been rather telling of his age. Looking at the filming photo’s, they’ve “greyed” him up and made him a bit chunky some what, so in the future movies his age would have become a burden.
