Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman, and he recently replied to Zack Snyder‘s farewell comments to what was and what could’ve been.
The was a time above…a time before…there were perfect things…diamond absolutes. But things fail…things on earth. And what falls…is fallen. In the dream, it took me to the light. A beautiful lie…Best Batman ever. Thank you my friend for blessing me with that f***ing glorious chin and an amazing heart.
In a new interview with Affleck, regarding his new project Triple Frontier, Ben was asked about Snyder’s comments, especially that glorious chin line, which prompted a laugh from Affleck. “Zack’s a funny guy, what can I say,” Affleck said, with his co-star Oscar Isaac adding “He’s got a good chin too then, doesn’t he?” Ben agreed, saying “He does have a very nice chin. He shouldn’t sell himself short.”
No doubt Snyder is still very proud of his casting choice to play the Dark Knight, and with some justification. The departure of Affleck from the role was met with sadness and disapproval from the vast majority of the fan community. Most people would have wished for him to continue in the role and reprise the character in Matt Reeves’ upcoming interpretation, but it is not to be. Check out the interview below with Affleck and Isaac.
