There was big time backlash when it was first announced that Ben Affleck would be starring as Batman in the upcoming “Superman vs. Batman” movie. With so many naysayers crying foul over Affleck’s casting, is there anyone out there who thinks they made the right choice?
“For me, this is a great choice. This is a dude who I put in a lot of movies and stuff,” director Kevin Smith tells Showbiz Tonight. “Now he’s a big movie maker himself. He doesn’t need to be put into movies if he doesn’t want to and that’s the weird thing. If you would imagine, he doesn’t need to be in a movie like this, he did ‘Daredevil’ once. But he’s doing it. He’s doing Batman. I think that’s phenomenal.”
If Smith thinks it’s such a great idea, why all of the backlash? Tune in to Showbiz Tonight at 11 pm ET/PT on HLN to find out how Kevin Smith thinks the controversy gained so much steam.
