Joseph Gordon-Levitt Backs Ben Affleck Batman Casting
The Dark Knight Rises actor says Affleck will be 'great' as the caped crusader...
But now JGL, who played police officer John Blake in the last Batman movie, has spoken out in support of Affleck.
Asked for his take on the casting by E! News while attending the MTV VMAs on Sunday night, he replied: "That's gonna be great."
And when quizzed about the batfans' disappointment, he continued: "Oh, but it's gonna be good. I think it's gonna be good."
Gordon-Levitt had been mooted as a possible contender to take over the role himself, after Christian Bale ruled himself out of playing Batman again.
Joss Whedon has also lent Ben Affleck his support.
