This past weekend, a new high-resolution image from Warner Bros.' upcoming Justice League movie was released, featuring Batman in his new tactical suit standing alongside his super-friends Wonder Woman, Cyborg, The Flash, and Aquaman. And on Monday night, with Ben Affleck appearing on his show, Jimmy Kimmel showcased the image and complimented his guest's superhero physique.
"You are by far the most muscular of [them]," Kimmel said. "Was that in the contract?"
Affleck quickly and excitedly exclaimed, "I make that look pretty good! That's not bad!"
Kimmel then asked if Affleck is going to direct the Batman solo film. "I'm going to direct the next Batman," he a.ssuredly replied, "we're working on it..." He added, "It's one of those things that's really frustrating because like Live by Night took me a year-and-a-half to write it and get it ready. And I worked really hard. It's just nobody gave a sh-t! Nobody was like, 'Where's Live by Night?!' But with Batman I keep on getting, 'Where's the f--cking Batman?!" And I"m like, 'Whoa, I'm working! Give me a second.'"
Kimmel wrapped up the interview by asking him if Casey Affleck will portray Robin in The Batman. "I think we could go back to the tape," Affleck responded, referring to a clip shown earlier of his younger brother forgetting to thank him during his Golden Globes acceptance speech on Sunday.
