When you have the opportunity to play Batman in a movie, it is hard not to want to take home some souvenirs from the set. And for Ben Affleck, he ended up taking home a Batarang from the set of his newest film, Justice League.
Affleck appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote Justice League. Stephen Colbert asked Affleck about whether or not he was able to keep some of the cool Bat-Gadgets, to which Affleck responded:
“But there was some other stuff that fell off the truck, like the batarangs and stuff. I kept getting these phone calls from the prop department, like, ‘You sure you haven’t found any of that stuff yet?'”
Because he took home a Batarang from the set, Affleck revealed that Warner Bros. billed him for stealing the prop:
“You can’t exactly have been stealing if you got been billed for it, which is what happened to me. Turns out batarangs aren’t cheap!”
You can watch a segment of Affleck’s interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert down below:
“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.”
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J.K. Simmons, Ciarán Hinds, Amber Heard, Joe Morton and Billy Crudup.
Justice League is in theaters now.
Every DC Comics Film, Ranked From Worst To Best
The film legacy of DC Comics should never be understated, even as the maturing superhero genre continues to follow more diverse paths of success through comic book characters beyond DC’s iconic catalogue.
But not all DC movies are created equal, and there’s merit to reflecting on how these films measure up against one another as the DC Extended Universe approaches its fifth movie in the form of Justice League (and the crowd said, finally). This list attempts to do just that by holding every live-action DC movie released in theaters to a consistent set of worthwhile standards, including the quality of the film itself, the onscreen performances, cultural relevance (both within and outside of box office considerations), overall impact, contributions to the genre at large, and originality.
Put more simply, a movie on this list won’t trump another on ticket sales, alone (or at all). But perhaps you’ll find an experimental DC film getting the leg up over another that is slightly more formulaic and unremarkable, despite being remembered fondly.
For obvious reasons, it’s perfectly alright to disagree with this list, but keep in mind that expecting it to coincide with your personal opinions and observations will only leave you disappointed. That said, be sure to offer your own arguments and lists in the comments for others to weigh their opinions against, because…well, why not?
Let’s start with the worst of the DC films (not an easy task). Hit Next to continue.
