Producer Charles Roven Discusses BATMAN VS SUPERMAN

Producer Charles Roven has been in the movie making business for quite sometime now. Roven has produced countless DC Comics films, including this past Summer's Man Of Steel. Earlier today, Variety caught up with Roven to discuss where the DC Cinematic Universe could be heading, Roven touched on everything from the Ben Affleck casting all the way to at what point the studio believed they should begin work on Man Of Steel 2. After the box office failure that was Superman Returns, Roven believed DC and Warner Bros' should attempt to bring Clark Kent to the modern world, instead of trying to shove the modern world, to a Clark from the past. Below is some of the interesting tidbits from the rather long interview with Variety which you can check out here!

On Man Of Steel And How The Studio Feels About It: 
“We felt that we accomplished our goals with ‘Man of Steel,’" Roven says. “Our intention was to bring Superman into the 21st century with a contemporary character and a different kind of superhero than what’s out there right now. We knew we had created a world and we had left Easter eggs in the movie that let people know that in the universe that Zack was creating, there was the possibility of other DC characters besides Clark Kent,” Roven says.
On Ben Affleck's Casting:  
“We wanted a guy who had a certain age and a certain gravitas to what he had done in terms of his recent work,” Roven says. “If you take a look at ‘The Town’ and ‘Argo,’ he plays a couple of serious guys in those movies. He’s a big man. He’s also a mature man. As you see him and Henry together, one definitely has much more experience just by looking at him. That’s what we wanted, particularly juxtaposed against our Superman.” 

As mentioned before, you can check out the full interview here. Batman Vs. Superman is set to hit theatres everywhere June 2015, with set photos set to leak around February/March of 2014.
