Well ‘Leave Ben Affleck alone’ should be trending anytime now. Once again during the press tour for Live by Night, the actor/director was asked about The Batman, this time by ET, and his frustration with the subject was notable in his response.
‘Oh my God, it’s such a pain in the ass’ Aflleck said. ‘It’s like every time I mention Batman it gets this huge click bait. And when I was doing this movie [Live by Night], it took me two years to get it together, but no one ever asked me “Where is Live by Night”. They ask me “Batman, Batman, Batman”. Batman is coming along, it’s going to be great, we’re going to make something really special, we’re going to take the time to make it right, we’re going to do it good, we’re going to do it the right way and the fans are going to love it.’

It is really understandable how annoyed Affleck must be with all Batman related questions. First of all he’s there promoting a very important project for him which is Live by Night, which as he states every time he gets a chance, took him over two years; second of all, that movie is not doing so well with the critics or in the box-office, and all he gets lately are Batman questions. I for one trust Ben Affleck, but we all should really just let him work.
Live by Night is directed by Ben Affleck and is playing in theaters around nation now.
