Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill dropped by the NBA All-Star Game Pre-Show to promote their upcoming superhero epic, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
While they were there both admitted to seeing a completed version of the film, however, neither of them went any further with those comments.
A few minutes later, Affleck was specifically asked what it was like to play an iconic role like The Dark Knight. "It was very intimidating," Affleck confessed, but he took comfort in knowing that his version of Batman is quite different from other big screen iterations.
"He's a little over the hill--broken," Affleck explained. "He's kind of given up. And when Superman shows up he's like so powerful that he threatens everything that Batman kind of believes in, and it leads to this conflict. So it wasn't like I had to play Batman in his prime, so that was at least the excuse that I told myself."
