All through a 2014 look on The This night Display, Affleck spoke candidly about how his kids in truth felt about their father turning into one of the crucial iconic characters in movie historical past (by the use of E! Information).
“Folks at all times say, ‘are your youngsters into it?’ No, they are no longer,” Affleck mentioned. “If I had been doing the sequel to ‘Frozen,’ I might be a hero. My two older daughters may give a s*** about Batman.” He added that his women had additionally handed on their love of the animated Disney movie onto his then-two-year-old son.
On reflection, it is hilarious to imagine how detached his daughters had been to their father’s starring position as a big superhero like Batman, particularly since he in point of fact best took at the phase for his youngsters within the first position, as he defined years later to the Awards Chatter podcast: “I sought after to do one thing that my son would dig. I mean, my youngsters did not see ‘Argo.'” The only upside of all this, he mentioned, was once that he did get to entertain his son by way of dressed in his Batman dress to the little boy’s party, which he mentioned was once “worth each second of struggling on ‘Justice League.'”
That mentioned, Affleck’s feedback on how his daughters felt about Batman had been mentioned earlier than “Batman V Superman” (or “Justice League”) got here out. Numerous time has handed since Affleck first gave that preliminary interview, and whilst there is no possible way of realizing, one would hope that his youngsters have since grown to respect their father’s portrayal of Batman in the similar approach that many DC fanatics have.
