Ben Affleck finally speaks out about the Sad Affleck meme. In an interview with BBC radio, Affleck said the meme was a learning experience for interviews.
“It taught me not to do interviews with Henry Cavill where I don’t say anything and they could lay Simon and Garfunkel tracks over it, that’s one thing I learned.”
Given the semi-serious way in which he said that and how annoyed he seems to be from numerous The Batman comments, it truly seems like Affleck just wants to be left alone. The fewer fans and interviewers which bother him, the more inspired he’ll likely be as he writes The Batman.
For a more serious response to what he learned during the film, Affleck responded with the following:
“I learned a ton actually, making that movie. I had not made a movie of that scale. I didn’t know what the technology was capable of doing nowadays. The last big blockbuster-y movies I made were like Armageddon in 1997.”
“The technology had really changed the way those movies were made. It was fascinating and I learned a tremendous amount.”
