NCIS: LA star Chris O’Donnell had his turn as Robin in the ’90s Batman Forever and Batman & Robin flicks and we’ve got his take on Warner Bros’ latest Batman casting announcement.
“I think it’s great,” says Chris. “I think Ben will be a great Bruce Wayne.”
ET Canada asked Chris if he has any words of advice for the Oscar-winner: “He’s been on huge films before. Ben knows what he’s doing… I think it really raises the interest level for that movie — not that there wouldn’t already be — but there’s a huge section of the movie-going population that is really going to be interested in that film now because Ben’s in it, especially coming off Argo.”;
And Ben’s superhero skill-set might not stop there, according to Chris, who says he could see it leading “to him [Affleck] directing The Justice League movie in a couple of years. It would be kind of a logical thing.”
What do you think? Are you happy with the ‘Batfleck’ casting?
