While there has yet to be a Season 6 episode of “The Walking Dead” that already features Jeffrey Dean Morgan, he is expected to take center stage in the second half of the TV series when it makes its Valentine’s Day midseason premiere.
Of course, Cohan and Morgan will just be playing bit parts to “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” but considering their huge following, especially Cohan as Maggie in “The Walking Dead,” it surely adds a plus factor on the box-office take of the movie when it finally hits theaters in less than two month’s time.
Meanwhile, Ben Affleck taking on the role of Bruce Wayne and the Caped Crusader was quite an unenviable and daunting task considering the very memorable take of Christian Bale in The Dark Knight trilogy under the meticulous helming of Christopher Nolan.
Many prime actors have taken on the Batman role before Christian Bale including Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, and George Clooney. But none can compare to the realism of The Dark Knight trilogy by Christopher Nolan which really gave Batman more weight as a superhero.
So when Director Zack Snyder and Ben Affleck were filming “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” they wanted the Caped Crusader to be more like the persona in The Dark Knight trilogy.
However, the challenge is to be different. They found a way into the character by aging the superhero and Ben Affleck took it from there.
