When you get to be a part of making a historic comic book film, it’s likely that a few items from set might be taken by the cast or crew. On the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Ben Affleck admitted that he did take a few props, which has helped his son truly believe that he is Batman.
During an interview with French magazine, Premiere, Affleck opened up about what he kept from the set.
“I straight up stole a Batarang. I put it in my pocket, thinking I had earned it. The props guy came to come get it and I said no. I thought I had a kind of ‘movie star pass’ for that kind of thing. I stayed strong and flew off to LA [with it]! The [props] guy was super pissed: ‘Fuck that Ben Affleck, who stole my Batarang!’ I never returned it. At the end of filming, Zack gave me an awesome gift: Batman’s grappling hook. I was like a little kid.”
With all of these new props, Affleck’s son really thinks that he has become Batman.
“Anyway it’s also funny, my son really thinks I am Batman. And I don’t know if it’s the colors, but he is sure that the FedEx guy is the Joker. Every time a package comes, ‘Dad, the Joker’s outside!'”
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released on March 25.
