The real reason Ben Affleck played Batman

As it turns out, Ben Affleck’s career wasn’t the only thing on his mind when he decided to join the DCEU. “I did Batman because I wanted to do it for my kids,” Affleck told the Awards Chatter podcast. “I wanted to do something that my son would dig. I mean, my kids didn’t see Argo.” Affleck directed and starred in the historical drama Argo, winning the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2013. While the film is one of his career’s high points, it’s also rated R, and so shelved for the kids to see at a later date. Batman, however, is a total kid-pleaser. Affleck said, “I wore the suit to my son’s birthday party, which was worth every moment of suffering on Justice League.”

After checking in and out of rehab for alcoholism, a problem that reemerged while working on Justice League, Ben Affleck is in a new era of his career: He’s proud of his recent work in The Way Back, which could garner him an Oscar nomination. However, despite exiting the film The Batman, which will now star Robert Pattinson, he isn’t completely done with the cape and cowl. He returned to Justice League last fall to do reshoots for Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated director’s cut and is even reprising the part in the upcoming The Flash, alongside another Batman, Michael Keaton. As awesome as it must have been for Batman to appear at his kid’s birthday party, let’s hope everyone watching these upcoming superhero films can have at least half as much enjoyment.
