Ben Affleck Responds To Rumors Of Him Fixing The Batman V Superman Script


Last month, US Weekly published an article in which they claim Ben Affleck — who won an Oscar for co-writing 1997's Good Will Hunting — re-wrote parts of Chris Terrio's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice script, and did so while he was dressed in his superhero suit.

On Saturday, at a Mexico City news conference ahead of the world premiere of Batman v Superman, Affleck was asked about the rumor and he strongly denied it.

"That is the dumbest rumor," said Affleck (via THR). "I just like how if I was gonna go write, I would put on this bat suit first because it's so comfortable to write in. I didn't rewrite anything in any outfit, my underwear or otherwise."

In Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, 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.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25, 2016.
