Seth Green is not a fan of Batfleck, that much he made abundantly clear in an interview on Hulu on Larry King. While Green has since come forward as saying he respects Affleck as an actor, the comedian noted that he isn’t sold on the idea of Affleck playing Batman.
Among the reasons Green lists for being skeptical about Affleck is the fact that he doesn’t see Henry Cavill being intimidated by the Oscar-winner, at least not in the context of a Batman-Superman film.
Here’s the video of Green discussing Batman and Ben Affleck with Larry King on Hulu:
E! Online transcribed Green’s comments to Larry King about Affleck not being as intimidating a Batman as he may need to be.
"“If this movie is meant to be the idealistic alien, humans-before-all-else Superman, and this is supposed to be the grizzled, weathered Batman who’s been living in Gotham, fighting crime himself for 10 years, you need a guy who’s older,” said Green. “You need a guy’s who’s got more weight, you need a guy that a Henry Cavill Superman is gonna be actually scared of.”"
There haven’t been many stars who have spoke out against Affleck as Batman, but Green has added his name to the list. He’s not trashing Affleck as a person, like some did when his casting was announced, but he’s raising some valid questions that fans have the right to raise themselves.
