Ben Affleck Stole Batarang From Batman v Superman Set

by Russ Burlingame


In a new interview published in Premiere magazine, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice star Ben Affleck revealed that he committed a crime so perfect, the world's greatest detective couldn't even stop him:

He stole a Batarang from the film's set.

"I downright stole one of Batarangs," Affleck said. "The prop guy came to ask for it and I told him no. I believed that I had a kind of 'movie star pass' for this kind of thing. I kept a stiff upper lip and I flew away for Los Angeles!"

There was apparently no hard feelings, though; apparently, after principal photography was done, director Zack Snyder gifted Affleck with a grappling gun used in the movie.

Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
