Curses, Batman! Ben Affleck Improv'd "Oh, sh--" Moment In Dawn of Justice

Spoiler Warning: This article contains spoilers from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

In the film, Batman (Ben Affleck) uses the Batwing to get Doomsday's attention so that he can lure the Kryptonian beast out of Metropolis. Batman guides Doomsday toward Gotham, where a weapon is located that could slay the creature. Once Batman gets to his desired location, Doomsday causes the Batwing to crash and stomps toward the downed aircraft.

Batman says, "Oh, sh–."

"I just improv’d that. I had a feeling that it would work and that it would be funny," Affleck told EW. "I improvised and I talked to Zack [Snyder] about it and I think this will really work because you don’t expect it – and because it’s Batman, and at that moment he is so incredibly overmatched. We’ve taken these characters and are treating them more and more realistically. It seems very realistic that he would say that at that point."

Is Affleck worried about exposing young fans to one swear word? "Any kid has heard their father say that if he’s trying to hammer a nail and hammers his thumb by accident,” he said. “I think that, unfortunately, all kids are plenty exposed to that particular expression."

    "Oh, sh--" part is right! :P

    Great film though, lighter for Man of Steel 2 is a must.

  1. America's ridiculousness. Cussing daily yet can't tolerate swearing in movies. And don't get me started on the killing/violence.

    Best part in the movie honestly as it is full on wonder woman intro, and did anyone else notice the crotch shot? Reminded me of the first resident evil.

    I really liked the movie (though, I need some time to really process my thoughts) but it convinced me that I don't want a Man of Steel 2. Cavill is probably the best live action Superman we've had but I just feel like he works better when he has more commanding actors to work off of. Another solo Superman movie where we have to endure Cavill trying his ass off next to a still horribly mis-cast Amy Adams does not sound appealing to me.

    Yeah man, I feel you, I know what you mean about Amy Adam's, I still see like more Lana Lang than Actual Lois Lane lol. 

    Cavill is an awesome Superman yes, don't think he's the best ever though, that mantle would have to go to Christoper Reeves always and forever as the best Man of Steel.

    And who knows, maybe they wont even make MOS 2? Basically BVS was it anyways.
