SUPERMAN VS. BATMAN Star Ben Affleck Talks about Preparing for Batman Casting Backlash

     September 17, 2013


No matter how much Ben Affleck improves his image and gives better performances in better movies, he’s going to have the stigma of past films attached to him as if other actors were never in bad flicks.  His casting as Batman in Zack Snyder‘s Superman vs. Batman was met with mixed reaction to say the least, and some vehement naysayers.  The backlash wasn’t completely unexpected from Affleck’s side, and on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, he said he was somewhat prepared for what the Internet would unleash, although he might be throwing out his computers for a little bit.
