According to ComicBook.com on Aug. 24, in an interview with actor Chris O’Donnell who had played Robin in previous "Batman" films, he addresses his support for Ben Affleck as the next Batman character. In fact, it appears any actor that had also played a role in the previous films can look forward to hearing questions being asked of them and their opinion of Affleck's new character role.
“I think it’s great. I think Ben will be a great Bruce Wayne. 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".
It also appears that even Adam West has participated in the Affleck opinionated bandwagon of providing hygiene details that by wearing the costume of the caped crusader in the heat, that one would have to keep an ample supply of deodorant available so as not to stink. Such tips should also be heeded by costuming fans at conventions, but some seem to neglect such basic tips as they sometimes get all caught up in the excitement of the event.
O'Donnell also mentioned he could see Affleck directing the "Justice League" movie and does acknowledge that he would also make a great actor if he were to take on the mantle of Batman.
