Playing EXCLUSIVE: Morgan Freeman Is Skeptical About 'Batman v Superman': 'I Don't Know How That's Gonna Work'

Sorry, Ben Affleck -- Morgan Freeman doesn't seem all that jazzed about the highly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

ET recently caught up with the 78-year-old actor while he was promoting his film London Has Fallen, out March 4 -- who played Lucius Fox in director Christopher Nolan's iconic Dark Knight trilogy -- and he told us he had his reservations about the upcoming blockbuster starring Affleck as Batman.

"You know, I'm happy for Ben, but I don't know how that's gonna work," Morgan said bluntly when asked if he'll see Batman v Superman.

Freeman also had a very good point -- that it'll be pretty tough to beat Nolan's critically acclaimed take on the Batman franchise.

"The Dark Knight was almost it, you know? Pretty much IT," he said. "Did you see Batman Begins? I don't think you can beat that, my feeling."

Obviously, Morgan's co-star in the Dark Knight trilogy, Christian Bale, appreciates the loyalty!

"Right on for Morgan for saying no one will ever beat that, I very much like him," Bale smiled when ET informed him of Freeman's comments at the Knight of Cups premiere on Tuesday.

Still, Bale said he was "looking forward" to Affleck and Henry Cavill's upcoming blockbuster.

"Everyone brings their own element to that -- Ben will do that as well," he said. "I think the trailers are looking great and I'm looking forward to that."

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25.
