Ben Affleck on Batman Backlash: 'I'm A Big Boy!'

Ben Affleck made an appearance on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon at Rockefeller Center on Monday night (September 16) where he finally opened up about his upcoming role of Batman in the highly anticipated Man of Steel sequel.

“I’m a big boy. If I can handle an Oscar snub, I can handle anything,” the 40-year-old actor joked about being famously snubbed for Argo last season.

“I saw the announcement, I look at the first comment and it’s like, ‘Ben Affleck is going to be Batman’ and the first one goes, ‘Noooooooo!’” Ben said.

“The people from the studio said, ‘We want to talk to you because people go through this process and it can be a little trying’” Ben concluded. “They said, ‘We want to show you some of the reactions that past cast members have got on the internet’.”

    OK, folks!! Ben was referring to the Emmy snub for his part on SNL.
    Also, he did get robbed in regards to the nom for Best Director at the Oscar’s.
    All of you that think he is full of self pity, you really mean he is self deprecating. Definition= person who knows their own weaknesses and shortcomings and isn’t afraid to point them out, often in humor.
    Also, if Ben is insecure standing next to JT, that is surprisingšŸ˜³
    I’m beyond jealous that he will be acting with that gorgeous model Emily Ratajkowski from the video “Blurred Lines” in the upcoming film, “Gone Girl”. Wowza!!!
    Excellent entertainment last night with Fallon and Affleck!!
