Ben Affleck has revealed that he agreed to play Batman for his kids, and he also added that it was worth every moment of suffering on Justice League. He wanted to do something they would actually watch, and Batman was a big deal for his son.
Affleck has actually revealed this in the past, but the difference this time is that he actually admitted to how hard a shoot (or reshoot) Justice League was. Yet, at the end of of the day, it was worth it to see the looks on his kids’ faces when they saw him in the Batsuit.
What he didn’t talk about in this interview, which was with The Hollywood Reporter, was whether we’ll see him play Batman after his upcoming appearance in The Flash movie. Fingers crossed we will.
Ben Affleck did Batman for his kids, and it was worth the suffering on Justice League
Here’s what Ben Affleck had to say about why he agreed to play Batman and why it was worth the suffering he experienced on the set of Justice League:
I did Batman because I wanted to do it for my kids. I wanted to do something that my son would dig. I mean, my kids didn’t see Argo. Zack wanted to do a version of the Frank Miller Dark Knight graphic novel series, which is a really good version of that. Unfortunately, there are a lot of reasons why things go the way they do in the movie business, and just because your face is on the poster doesn’t mean that you’re dictating all of those things, and even if you were, that they would go well. I wore the suit to my son’s birthday party, which was worth every moment of suffering on Justice League.
