When the first reaction Ben Affleck read to his casting as the new Batman read, “Nooooooooooo,” he knew it was time to take a short vacation from the internet. The new Batman chatted about how he thought he’d handle the uproar and the reality of the reaction in a new interview with Jimmy Fallon. Affleck says he’s a big boy who can handle the backlash, but he also suggested people wait until the movie actually comes out to form an opinion (what fun would that be?) and give director Zack Snyder a chance to show why he wanted Affleck to star opposite Henry Cavill as Superman.
