Last month, when the world learned the shocking news that Ben Affleck has been cast as the new Batman in an upcoming series of new films, pretty much every person on Earth had something to say about his casting … except for Ben himself. Last night, during his appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Ben broke his silence for the first time and talked openly about his new gig as Batman. The video embedded above starts out with Ben talking very cutely about his children and then at around the 1:45 mark the subject of Batman is brought up and discussed. Ben talks about the criticism from fans online and offers a minuscule bit of insight about the new films directed by Zack Snyder (“It’s an incredible take on it … it’s something different“). Honestly, he seems to have a great attitude about everything and he has a LOT of time to get comfortable in his new role (the Superman vs. Batman movie won’t be out until 2015) — which is great — but it’s going to take me a while to be convinced that he’s the right man for the Batsuit. We’ll see. For now, check out this interview and see/hear what Ben, himself, has to say about the whole matter.
