Ben Affleck heads to a studio for a day of work on Friday (March 4) in Santa Monica, Calif.
The 43-year-old actor recently dressed up as Batman, the same superhero he plays in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, for his son Samuel‘s 4th birthday party.
“We all dressed up, I dressed up as a ninja, and Ben dressed up as Batman for Sam, which was the best dad moment in history,” Jennifer told Extra. “It was pretty sweet.”
“He wanted a superhero birthday party and so he wanted superheroes there,” Ben said while on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “He was like, ‘and I want you to do Batman. Real Batman!’”
“There was Wonder Woman, Captain America, Iron Man and there was me … it was so mortifying,” Ben added. “First I thought, ‘It’s kids. It’s kids.’ I didn’t think that, of course, like, all their parents are there. So I had to, like, put on my outfit for this movie, and put on my scary face for the 4-year-olds and all their folks are there. It’s 11 in the morning and they’re kind of like ‘Wow. Batman.’”

Ben, on Batman questioning himself: “He’s projecting his own sense of failure, his own sense of disillusionment, his own cynicism onto Superman,”
Henry, on Superman’s weakness: “[Superman’s] weakness is that he doesn’t want to hurt anyone. He doesn’t want to scare anyone, and in that you can take advantage of him. This is someone who is a complete amateur, and he’s facing up against someone who is very well versed in the arts of war.”
Matt Damon pops out of Ben Affleck‘s giant coat while making a special appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s post-Oscars special on Sunday night (February 28) in Hollywood.
The guys are longtime best friends and Matt, who is pretty much banned from appearing on the late night talk show in a running gag, used the opportunity to sneak onto the set.
“Well you know, you do the superhero and you get muscled and muscle turns to fat,” Ben said when Jimmy pointed out that he “ballooned up.”
After Matt popped out of the suit, Ben said he thinks it’s time for the guys to “bury the hatchet.” Jimmy was not having it and kicked Matt out of the studio after he tried sitting in the other seat on set.
