Ben Affleck carefully danced around the politics of the new “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” movie and how it may parallel with the 2016 race for the presidency.
While he said the film wasn’t “overtly political,” he does think it shares some common themes with today’s political landscape.
Was the outspoken Democrat actor taking a swipe at Republican candidate Donald Trump while discussing it with USA Today?
“(The screenwriters) had many conversations about politics and the nature of politics in movies,” Affleck said. “This is a movie that has a substance to it … and is provocative. I don’t think it’s strident, I don’t think it’s preachy, but I think it does raise the question of, ‘What happens to us when we become afraid of one another?’ which is a very current theme. It doesn’t mean to lecture at you or to hector you, but I do think that it’s a ballsy movie and evocative, and a movie that isn’t just about two cartoon characters slugging it out.”
