Criticisms for Ben Affleck’s competence to play Batman still continue even as the filming of the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as already started.
But the 42-year old actor keeps his cool and shares his philosophy in showbiz and how he has been doing in his recent show Gone Girl in an interview on the Today show aired on Tuesday.
“You have all of this attention – some of it’s positive, some of it’s negative.
I think, in the end, you make the movie and it either works or it doesn’t,” the Gone Girl actor said.
It is to be remembered that Affleck has faced lots of disagreements when Batman filmmakers chose him to play the role after being shortlisted together with other candidates like the Welsh actor Christian Bale.
Further, he explained that it is completely normal for fans to be fully engrossed to the stories or series they have admired or followed all their lives and such heightened feelings might lead them to do extreme actions.
“We have these cultural stories that people have attachments to, they care very much about, the fans have imagined it, they write fan fiction, and they get very into and it and they’re certainly entitled to those feelings,” the Argo filmmaker further said.
Meanwhile, in a separate interview in Live With Kelly and Michael and as quoted in ABC News, the Daredevil actor was made to talk about the cost of the Batman suit.
“I asked them, ‘So, how about maybe taking the suit home at the end of this thing? They were like, ‘For $100,000 we could!” Further, the Oscar winning actor said that such the suit has such an extravagant price as it is meant to be perfect including his near-perfect body inside the suit to meet the audience’s expectations.
Audiences have an increasing expectation.
You see guys like Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans and all these guys whose bodies are just like, you think, ‘How is that even possible?!’ So, exercising is as much of the job now in some ways as the rest of it.”
