In a sit down interview with Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa and Ray Fisher - Miami's WSVN reporter Chris Van Vliet asked Ben Affleck a question that might have hit close to home. Ever since Affleck was mentioned for the role of Batman, entertainment sites and magazines have been referring to him as "Batfleck."
It's not so much that the term itself would necessarily mean anything to him, but back before Affleck was an Academy Award winning director (not just writer) he dated Jennifer Lopez. The papparazzi was obsessed with the couple and gave them the name "Bennifer" - don't ask me why, I guess it was just a time saving measure.
So when Affleck was asked the question if he likes the term "Batfleck," he probably read a bit more into it.
Batfleck: That's a sort of common phenomena that's happened now of joining everybody's name like it started off just being, like you know the names of couples - you know Bradgelina or whatever and then it became like... it took off from there... I don't spend too much time thinking about it one way or another.
