Jennifer Garner Celebrates Her Birthday With A Marching Band Sans Ben Affleck — Haha!

| Filed under: Ben AffleckJennifer GarnerParty Poppin'

Jennifer Garner celebrates her birthday with a lovely dinner party.

Thanks for watching the kids so your wife could party, Ben Affleck!

By all accounts Jennifer Garner had a raging shindig to celebrate her 44th birthday on Sunday in her LA home.

And by raging, we mean super grown-up and tasteful.

A source told People:

"There was a lot of laughter. Everyone seemed to have fun. Soft music played during the dinner. It was a quiet party and the last guests left by 11 p.m."

Thirty guests enjoyed a beautiful patio dinner on mismatched vintage furniture, and later a surprise marching band came to play much to Jen's squealing delight.

It was all directed by Wes Anderson, probably.

Her ex was on daddy duty taking their children Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel to dinner at a restaurant.

So he obviously wasn't invited. Ha!

It's Official! Ben Affleck Will Star In A Solo Batman Movie — But Will He Also Be Directing?

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice may have been a hot mess, but Ben Affleck's portrayal of the Dark Knight was a glimmering beacon of hope for the future of the big screen DC universe.

Now, it looks like the Caped Crusader is set to fly solo — because Warner Bros. confirmed it is developing a standalone Batman film!

At the studio's CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas, CEO Kevin Tsujihara confirmed that the actor would star in a solo Batman film and hinted at what many have long suspected — that the Oscar-winner will be directing!

Last month, it was reported that Ben had written a "really cool" solo Batman script — so it doesn't come as much of a surprise the writer-director of Gone Baby Gone and The Town would be at the helm.

Don't get us wrong, Jared Leto looks absolutely AH-Mazing as the Joker in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie — especially after that most recent trailer!

That being said, we're not sure we would ever want to film with the 30 Seconds to Mars singer as he apparently goes to crazy and DISGUSTING lengths to get into character!

A couple of months ago, Viola Davis dished that Leto sent his costars a dead pig, and before that Margot Robbie said the Oscar winner gifted her with a live rat in a box all to stay in character. Talk about twisted!

Well Jared was on hand at CinemaCon in Las Vegas last night and he revealed to E! News that he also sent his costars — which also include Will Smith, Cara Delevingne, Jai Courtney, Scott Eastwood, and Joel Kinnaman — USED condoms and anal beads!

YUCK. The 44-year-old went on to say:

Despite negative critic reviews, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice still had a pretty explosive first weekend at the box office, setting the March record with $166.1 million domestic opening.

But after that the superhero team up had a HUGE drop off — 69 percent to be exact, a drop largely attributed to poor word of mouth.

While we're still waiting to see if the DC comic flick will turn a profit after its rumored $250 million budget and $150 million in advertising, it's clear the movie won't be quite the success Warner Bros hoped for.

Rampant speculation that WB might not release quite as many movies as a result of the disappointment — along with recent cape-less failures

What negative reviews?

The most recent superhero blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hasn't exactly been the success that Warner Brothers hoped it would be, but that might not stop a certain vigilante from getting his own spin-off!

Despite an incredible box office take, not only has the cast and the director Zack Snyder had to defend the film, but some fans have even started a petition to get Snyder removed from helming The Justice League: Part One.
