Ben Affleck was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to talk about the upcoming Justice League movie, and he shared why he decided to play as Batman in the DC Extended Universe. 

“The reason I took this movie is imagining wearing that costume, and I’ve got a little boy, and having my son see me,” Affleck told Kimmel. “Everybody wants their kid to think of them as a superhero.”
