Ben Affleck Responds To ‘Batman’ Critics
Ben Affleck stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Monday night and dished on getting the Warner Bros.‘ untitled Batman-Superman movie and the following backlash! “They called me up and said, ‘Do you wanna do this?’ And I thought, ‘Well, I’m not 25, man. Are you sure about this?'” He told Fallon.
Now the studio execs did warn Ben that people may not be so welcoming of him as Batman and warned him of what was to come.”‘Listen, we want to talk to you because people go through this process and it can be trying…We want to show you some of the reactions that past people who have been cast have gotten, like on the internet and stuff. They showed me people who were in these movies who did a great job and commenters would say, ‘Kill him!’ You can’t say that before a movie comes out. It doesn’t matter what you think then, it matters what you think when you see the movie.”
he was told to sat away from the interent for a few days…he did not listen, “I said, ‘I’m a big boy. I can handle any snub. I can handle anything.’ I said, ‘I handle s–t.’ I’m very tough. So, I saw the announcement, I look down the thing and I look at the first comment. The first comment goes, ‘Nooooooooooooo.’ I’m like, ‘We’re going to be Luddites for a while, kids.'”
let’s give him a chance…Gigli was soooo long ago…he has done Argo since then!
