Ben Affleck breaks the silence on the passage of Batman: “I was miserable”
Ben Affleck reflects on the episodes of “sheer misery” he felt exposed to while playing Batman for the Justice League movie.
Affleck weighed in on his ‘misery’ in a candid chat with the Hollywood journalist.
He started the chat by recalling, “‘Justice League’]made me go, ‘I’m out. I don’t ever want to do this again. I’m not suited.’
He even went so far as to mark the whole time, “the worst experience I’ve ever seen at a company that’s full of shitty experiences.”
So much so that “it broke my heart. And I started drinking too much.
In an attempt to put things into perspective, Affleck admits: “I was back at the hotel in London, it was either that or jump out the window. And I just thought, ‘This is not the life I want. My children are not there. I am miserable’.”
Following Justice Leguae’s release, Affleck also recalls agreeing to direct the role, yet again, for a “Synder Cut” version, released in 2021.
“I went and I did. And now [‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’] is my highest rated movie on IMDb.
“I’ve never had one that went from nadir to pinnacle. Retroactively, it is a success. All of a sudden I was complimented on the bombshell I was in.
