Ben Affleck has revealed why he decided to play Batman in the DCEU, and it was for his kids (awwww).
Here’s what it says on THR:
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 [Snyder] 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.
Affleck playing the role of Batman because of his kids is super cool. He has played one awesome Batman, and I’m sure his kids loved that their father played one of the most badass characters in DC. We’re going to see Affleck play Batman one last time in The Flash, so it’s going to be exciting to see him play the role one last time.
