Jennifer Garner Says Something Else About Ben Affleck’s Batman Role

“Dude, I have gotten in some trouble for my little quotes and I am learning to whoop [zipped-lips motion]. I thought that I was saying things that were foregone conclusions. It turns out nothing is, and you will not be hearing from me on the Batman front.” – actress (and Ben Affleck’s wife) Jennifer Garner speaking with Collider.

Garner previously made headlines when she barely said anything about Affleck’s Man of Steel sequel costume. ”I’ve seen the suit,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “The suit is unbelievably cool. It’s a total reinvention. It looks great.”

I wish her the best of luck but I also kind of wish she slips and says something else down the road because I’m dying to know more. Garner will next be seen in Draft Day opposite Man of Steel’s Kevin Costner.

Watching This Baby Get Excited Over Man of Steel Will Make You Realize Why Superman Has Lasted This Long

Folks are pretty evenly split on whether or not the latest live-action incarnation of Superman on the big screen was a win or a lose but Superman films will keep being made. Not just because they make millions of dollars, but because at his core, Superman inspires. Youtuber lribbit writes of this video, “My 16 month old son reacts to the First Flight sequence from Man of Steel. I’ve spawned another fan!” Yes, it all comes back to, “you’ll believe a man can fly.” Take a look.

Ben Affleck Discusses Batman & Daredevil While Amy Adams Discusses Wonder Woman

I’ve mentioned before I’m not keen on Ben Affleck playing Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, but I’m keeping my hopes up it will turn out well. While the actor can’t really give specifics on the film, he’s been getting asked a lot about it in interviews and a new one has him not only discussing the Dark Knight and Zack Snyder’s approach, but his past superhero work as well. Hit the jump for his thoughts, plus what Amy Adams had to say when she was asked about the recent Wonder Woman casting.
