After cracking the joke countless times, we really shouldn’t be shocked. After all Kevin Smith and Jennifer Garner have seen it, so of course Matt Damon has seen what his buddy, Ben Affleck, looks like in his new batsuit. Admit it, if YOU were cast as the Dark Knight, you’d be showing it off to everyone too. Hell, I’d be wearing that damn thing 24/7 (actually, I don’t need to be cast as Batman to dress up as Batman, right? Asking for a friend.)
MTV caught up with Damon recently while he was promoting his next movie, Monuments Men, and needled him for details. Which he gave and also revealed that Ben has given him the inside track on the storyline of Batman vs Superman.
“I’ve seen a picture, I have seen a picture. It’s excellent. And I’ve talked to him about the storyline, and it’s great. Look I’ve known him for thirty-something years, I’d be the first guy being like ‘Buddy, what are you doing?’ but I think the movie is going to be great.”
So… Warner Bros/DC Entertainment, are you going to release an image of Ben Affleck in the Batsuit anytime soon or are you going to wait till he gets around to showing each one of us individually? With the fanbeing rage still strong over the casting of Affleck, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and most recently
Michael Cera Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, if this images is as convincing as everyone who’s seen it makes it sound it could help take the heat off a little and calm some comic book nerd nerves.
You can watch the clip below, also kudos to MTV for not cracking the “so, will you be Robin?” joke that will resurface with this soundbite.
Now we wait for what Jennifer Lopez has to say… Ben still talks to J-Lo, right?
