Kevin Smith Says Ben Affleck Looks Like The Best Batman So Far


Everyone has their favorite Batman actor. While many us are still holding judgment on Ben Affleck's take on the role until Zack Snyder's Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice is released in two months, geek icon Kevin Smith already thinks his old pal is destined to be the best Batman ever.

"Right away, he's the best looking Batman we've ever seen," Smith told Variety at the Sundance Film Festival while promoting his new film Yoga Hosers. "The hardest thing to nail about Batman is Bruce Wayne, because that's where you've got no mask and you've got to be a human being. But that dude is Bruce Wayne, so he's born to play that role. Everything I've seen so far is phenomenal, I think he'll be our best Batman."

Listen to Smith's comments in the video below.

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.
