Quentin Tarantino: Batman Is Not a Very Interesting Character
Quentin Tarantino is a man of many words, whether fanboys like it or not.
In a new interview with French print publication Les Inrockuptibles, translated by The Playlist, Tarantino admits he’s not interested in Batman movies because, well, he doesn’t find the superhero all that fascinating.
“I have to admit that I don’t really have an opinion,” he said of Ben Affleck’s Batman casting. “Why? Because Batman is not a very interesting character. For any actor. There is simply not much to play. I think Michael Keaton did it the best, and I wish good luck to Ben Affleck. But, you know who would have made a great Batman? Alec Baldwin in the ’80s.”
Tarantino went on to defend Gore Verbinski’s box office disappointment “The Lone Ranger,” which recently made the director’s 10 best movies of the year.
