Ben Affleck had a lot of time during the filming of Justice League (2017). The 48-year-old actor therefore states that he accepted the role of Batman, which he first took on in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) for the sake of his children.
“ I played Batman because I wanted to do it for my children:, he tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I wanted to do something that my son would really like. I mean, my kids haven‘t seen Argo.”
Although Affleck, who then became addicted to alcohol, admits that not everything went according to plan with Justice League, it was worth this agony. “Unfortunately, there are many reasons why things go the way they go in the film world,” he looks back. According to Affleck, the problems accumulated in such a way that he felt completely burnt out. “But I wore the suit to my son’s birthday party, and that was worth all the suffering.”
