Runner, Runner - Ben Affleck's Character Changed?

Is Warner Concerned With Future Batman's Image?

Ben Affleck follows Christian Bale as the new Batman. That was a huge surprise for many film fans and most of them are rather sceptical or outright furious. That's no surprise, either, after Christopher Nolan's extraordinary trilogy. The team-up between the new Batman and Superman is scheduled for 2015 and Affleck uses his spare time to make some money with other films.

One of them is the thriller Runner, Runner. It co-stars Justin Timberlake and Gemma Arterton but that didn't seem to help the film with either critics nor at the box office. After the film didn't make a good impression during post-production, Affleck asked his longtime editor to help assembling a presentable cut of the movie. But Latino Review has another interesting detail to share.

They report that inside sources told them that Warner Bros. (who own the film rights to Batman and Superman) tried to influence director Brad Furman and Affleck. Word is that they are concerned that Affleck's character in Runner, Runner might be too unlikable and could lose the audience's sympathy in the long run. That could affect the Batman role in the future.

It appears a bit fishy, though. Runner, Runner was produced by 20th Century Fox and not Warner and whether Fox would help one of its biggest competitors preventing harm to their multimillion Dollar franchise seems rather unlikely. But maybe Affleck can solve this problem on his own and win back audiences with his role in the upcoming David Fincher movie Gone Girl.
