Josh Brolin Talks About Why He Turned Down The Chance To Become Zack Snyder’s Batman

It looks like Josh Brolin's really glad that he didn't get to become Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's Batman.

The Avengers: Infinity War star might now both be Marvel's Thanos and 20th Century Fox's Cable, but before Warner Brothers decided on Ben Affleck, Brolin used to be an early contender for Batman v Superman's Dark Knight.


Sitting down to speak in an interview with CBM, Brolin reveals that while Batman is definitely an iconic role, he's glad that the offer to play the DCEU's caped crusader just didn't work out for both parties.

"We indirectly talked about it, but we never got to the point because I wasn't the guy for him (Zack Snyder). I'm really glad it didn't happen. I haven't thought twice about it," Brolin explained.

Though Brolin would have made for an interesting Batman, fans are already pretty happy with Ben Affleck's version of Bruce Wayne.

Sure the DCEU's screen writers might not always have the best parts or best lines for the Dark Knight, but many fans consider Affleck's Batman one of the best versions of the superhero, loving how the actor manages to capture Batman's broody personality.

Besides, if Brolin had taken the Batman role from Warner Brothers, then he probably wouldn't have become 20th Century Fox's Cable for Deadpool 2. All is well that ends well, really.

Deadpool 2 premieres May 18, 2018.
