Ben Affleck unfazed by Batman criticsm

Sep 17 2013, 4:12am CDT | by Bang Movies

Ben Affleck isn't fazed by criticism of his Batman casting.

The 'Argo' filmmaker has developed a thick skin over time due to countless snubs from film critics, so claims to have taken the uproar over his casting as the caped crusader in Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' sequel on the chin.

Speaking on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon', Ben laughed: ''I'm a big boy. If I can handle an Emmy snub, I can handle anything. I handle s**t, you know what I mean? I'm very tough.

''So I saw the announcement, I look at the first comment and it's like, 'Ben Affleck is going to be Batman' and the first one goes, 'Noooooooo!' ''

The 41-year-old actor - who has long been a fan of the DC Comics character - revealed Warner Bros. bosses scheduled a meeting with him to put his mind at ease and advise him to ignore the negative comments.

He said: ''The people from the studio were like 'We're thrilled... and listen we want to talk to you because people go through this process and it can be a little trying.'

''They said, 'We want to show you some of the reactions that past cast members have got on the internet.' ''

Batman was most recently played by Christian Bale in Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight' trilogy, and Affleck joked he wasn't the first incarnation of the role to receive over-the-top responses like, ''Kill him!''

He added: ''Zack [Snyder] has this incredible take on it... he wants to do something different but still in keeping with [previous films].''

Affleck will star alongside Henry Cavill as Superman in the blockbuster 'Man of Steel' sequel, which is due for release in 2015.

It if appears that Marvel and DC Comics are going tit for tat in the movie wars of late, you’d be right. As soon as it was announced that Robert Downey Jr. would be in Captain America 3, Warner’s and DC responded and released their full superhero slate through 2020. And it’s one that includes solo movies for Wonder Woman, Aquaman and a Green Lantern reboot. And now merely days after Marvel released the highly anticipate ...

"Batman v Superman" Teaser Before Year's End?

Oct 24 2014 10:11am CDT | Source: dark horizons

Following the release of Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" first trailer the other day, one obvious comment quickly arose on social media - when will DC fire back with their own first teaser for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"? Considering the film is not due out until March 2016, a full ten months after 'Ultron' hits cinemas, you would think we wouldn't see a first trailer until mid-next year at the earliest. The m ...

Aaron Sorkin Says Christian Bale Will Be in Every Frame of the Steve Jobs Film

Oct 23 2014 12:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

We thought Christian Bale was a pretty solid choice to play Steve Jobs in Danny Boyle’s upcoming movie, but it turns out we weren’t half as excited as writer Aaron Sorkin is. Calling Bale “the best actor on the board in a certain age range,” Sorkin expressed his confidence that Bale would “crush it” as the late tech guru — in a role that is particularly difficult, and present in every single moment of the film. Hit the jump to read the Aaron Sorkin Chris ...

Jason Momoa Dishes Aquaman: “I Don't Have to be Quiet Anymore”

Oct 20 2014 10:45am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

We’ve thought Jason Momoa would be Aquaman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice for some time, but it was never truly announced. Whenever the actor was asked about, he was coy with his response and it was one of the great mystery of the DC Comics-Warner Bros. world. But now that DC Comics and Warner Bros. have announced a superhero slate through 2020 that includes a solo Aquaman movie, Momoa is free to ...
