Ben Affleck Surprises Young Fan With Hospital Visit

Ben Affleck has stepped out of the directing chair for the upcoming Batman film, but his time is being well spent as he visits a young fan in the hospital.

It’s been quite a year already for Ben Affleck, and it’s only February. His passion project Live By Night was a huge flop, with Warner Bros. having to write down $75 million on the costly gangster flick. He also broke the geek Internet this past week when he announced that he’d be stepping away from the director’s chair for the upcoming solo Batman film.

However, where there’s loss, there’s also gain. Ben Affleck has devoted some much needed free time towards visiting a young fan in the hospital. Instagrammed by the fan’s mother, Affleck is seen with the duo at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Even more adorable than the picture is the caption, which reads “We weren’t photo ready but Ben Affleck came to visit us today! We’re both geeking out! ? #batman #benaffleck #dccomics”.

Ben Affleck will next be seen in the long-awaited Justice League film. You can check out the full synopsis below.

In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

While he may not be directing it, Affleck will still be starring in the solo Batman film. Here are 10 directors that we think should take on the film.

Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons and Jesse Eisenberg.

Justice League hits theaters on November 11, 2017.
