Charles Roven, the producer of the comic book tentpole film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, sat down for a Q & A on The Hollywood Masters and revealed that Christopher Nolan actually helped casting Ben Affleck for the new Batman.

Roven lastly mentioned how Justice League is indeed coming with this new Batman and confirmed that Wonder Woman will be the half-god daughter of Zeus in this incarnation of the character.

According to Badass Digest, her original origin is much more interesting:

The Amazons were created by the gods using the souls of all the women murdered by men. There was, when it was all said and done, one soul remaining, the soul of the unborn daughter of the first woman to ever be murdered by a man. That woman was Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons, and she molded a figure of clay and gave to it the soul of that unborn girl. The clay was animated and became Diana, who was gifted abilities from the gods.

Unfortunately, her original origin is being tossed out for something more “modern” and “realistic” in the vein of Thor where Greek gods are highly-advanced space aliens. This is actually more in line with the New 52 version of the character in which she was really created because her mother, Hippolyta, and Zeus had sex and she was born from them.

Roven added that Affleck’s height was also a factor, therefore, here’s a photoshopped photo of Ben Affleck wearing a t-shirt that says “Team Batfleck.”

Batman v  Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman alongside Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth. Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey, Tao Okamoto, and Scoot McNairy also star in yet-to-be-confirmed roles.
