Playing Batman was Affleck's dream
The actor, who plays Batman in the upcoming Justice League, says it was his childhood dream to play the superhero one day
Ben Affleck has revealed that he is still invested in the role of Batman as it was his dream to play the superhero while growing up. There were reports that Affleck would no longer play Bruce Wayne after Justice League, especially after he dropped out of directing the upcoming The Batman movie.
However, the 45- year-old actor says the role has been a special one for him. “Playing Batman was a boyhood dream come true for me, so playing Batman alongside the Justice League? I mean, what can you say? The first time we all stood on set in costume, we just looked around at each other and you could tell it was a big moment for each one of us,” Affleck says.
The star previously reassured fans that he would star in Matt Reeves’ upcoming DC movie, saying he was “the luckiest guy in the world.”
