Ben Affleck On How Matt Damon Helped Him Quit The Role Of DCEU’s Batman



Ben Affleck, who is all set to essay the character of the Caped Crusader one last time on the silver screen in Andy Muschietti’s ‘The Flash’, in a recent interview with Matt Damon talked about how the latter’s guidance helped him quit the iconic DCEU character. Not only that but the 49-year-old actor also talked about the ‘nadir experience’ he had while filming ‘Justice League’ in 2017.

In a recent conversation with Entertainment Weekly, Affleck was all praise for Damon (who was conducting the interview), who helped him move on in his career. Recalling the time when he wanted to quit the character of Batman, Affleck told Damon, “I talked to you about it, and you were a principal influence on that decision. I want to do the things that would bring me joy. Then we went and did Last Duel, and I had fun every day on this movie.”

Talking about Zack Snyder’s 2017 superhero movie, Affleck continued, “I had a really nadir experience around Justice League for a lot of different reasons. Not blaming anybody, there’s a lot of things that happened. But really what it was is that I wasn’t happy. I didn’t like being there. I didn’t think it was interesting. And then some really s—ty and awful things happened. And that’s when I was like, I’m not going to do that anymore.”

While Affleck did let go of the cape and seems in a pretty happy state of mind these days, the American actor’s relationship with Jennifer Lopez has also garnered a lot of attention. The lovebirds have been winning over the internet with their PDA while giving their fans major relationship goals.

Meanwhile, in another interview, Affleck seemed pretty excited about playing Batman in ‘The Flash’ and called filming the project a really fun, satisfying and encouraging experience. The Andy Muschietti’s directorial starring Ezra Miller in the lead as Barry Allen aka Flash is currently slated to release on November 4, 2022.
