|Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner|
Ben Affleck's wife says he's going to be "fantastic" as Batman.
Jennifer Garner, Ben Affleck's wife since 2005, was at the Toronto Film Festival to promote her new movie Dallas Buyers Club. But, despite the fact that she doesn't want to be known "wife of Ben Affleck," the reporters had to ask her about he husband's new role as Batman in the Man of Steel sequel Superman vs. Batman.
It's been quite a stir, but Garner said, "Believe me, you can’t expect anything else. He’s a grown-up ... that is just what you’re getting into. But he’s going to be fantastic."
She was also asked how she feels about being married to the next Batman. She said, "You know, I was excited for him. I was excited because he had a real take on what he wanted to do, and you know, I have to say, my husband is a pretty great storyteller himself, and I’m excited to watch him do it." They actually found out a while back that he had been cast and had to keep the role secret for "months and months."
They asked if Affleck has started practicing his gruff Batman voice, but when asked if she's heard it she cryptically said, "I hear every voice."
Affleck is a huge fan of Batman and even has a Batcave in his house. Kevin Smith went to visit him and found out he has a revolving bookcase in his house like the Bruce Wayne has to get to his Batcave.
Kevin Smith explained: "He brings me into the room and goes, 'Look at this'. There's an office room and this beautiful bookcase - he reached under and he clicked something and all of a sudden the bookcase opened.
"I was like, 'No! You built a f***ing Batcave?' And he was like, 'No I built a Batcave entrance!' When you went in behind the bookcase it was a panic room."
That's the ultimate Man-Cave.
Jennifer told Allure magazine that she rarely walks the red carpet as "Ben Affleck's Wife" saying, "Sometimes it's a pain because my heels are so high and it would be really nice to have his arm. And he's such a great date! But it can be too much. I think especially for women, they can really lose their identity and just become 'wife of'."
Even though she has a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award, Ben Affleck's wife name will soon be "wife of Batman."
What do you think about Jennifer Garner's assessment of her husband? Will he be fantastic as Batman?
