Actor Ben Affleck was a guest of last night’s (September 16, 2013) Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and he talked about what everyone else is talking about — being cast as Batman.

“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’,” he recalled.

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

Ben laughed: “I’m a big boy. If I can handle an Emmy snub, I can handle anything. I handle shit, 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!'”

Henry Cavill will reprise his role of Superman in the Man of Steel sequel, of which Affleck teased: “Zack [Snyder] has this incredible take on it… he wants to do something different but still in keeping with [previous films].”

I think for most of us, the jury is still out on this one. Hopefully Ben will prove all his naysayers wrong on kick some serious ass in the role.
