Last week, Ben Affleck was the subject of controversy after reports surfaced that he excluded a slave-owning relative from his family tree for his appearance on the ancestry show Finding Your Roots.
The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star explained in a post that the footage was not used because there were very few details of the account available.
After more research was done on the subject, it's come to light that the Oscar winner had not one, but three slave-owning ancestors!
In the Affleck episode of the PBS program, the star learns that his sixth great-grandfather Jesse Stanley admirably fought in the American Revolution and was one of just 2,000 soldiers who served under George Washington!
But what Benny didn't learn (on air, at least) was that Jesse's grandfather Nathaniel Stanley was wealthy landowner who paid 80 pounds for a young boy called Tobe
Last week, Wikileaks complied 173,000 emails from the Sony hacking, and shined some unfavorable light on Ben Affleck in regards to his appearance on the ancestry show Finding Your Roots.
An email exchange between a Sony executive and the show's host Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. (aka "Skip") details that Affleck wanted to leave out a slave-owning relative of his from the PBS series.
After becoming the topic of discussion, the Oscar-winner broke his silence this week on requesting a controversial branch of his family tree be left out of the program. The actor wrote on his Facebook:
UPDATE 7:00PM EST: The official Batman v Superman trailer has dropped. See it in all its HD glory below!
Last year, Disney and Marvel had no choice but to release the trailer for Avengers: Age Of Ultron earlier than planned after it was leaked online. Now, it seems that Warner Bros might have to do the same thing for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice!
The trailer for the highly anticipated film starring Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck briefly leaked online this week. The unauthorized video was seemingly shot with a phone and was removed from YouTube shortly after it was uploaded.
The trailer focuses primarily on the public's opinion of Superman's after the events of Man of Steel, as we see a statue of the hero tagged "false god".
And it looks like the person most upset with Supes is our boy Batfleck!
Ch-ch-check out the not-so-great recording of a pretty awesome trailer (below)!
No sign of Ben Affleck in this short tease!
But there was a lot more to get excited about! Including another look at his tattered Batman costume!

Just in time for Netflix's Daredevil series, the folks at Screen Junkies have whipped up an Honest Trailer for the 2003 film!
So, does the original Daredevil hold up? Ha! That movie was maligned even in its own time!
See everything you hope Batfleck won't be (below)!
Ben Affleck is just oozing pure awesome!
The political-minded crusader for good went to Capitol Hill to testify before the Senate State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs Subcommittee.
Flanked by fellow world-saving hero Bill Gates, Ben began his passionate speech about getting more U.S. foreign assistance to further economic development programs in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
He loves the Congo and has been doing charity work there ever since his first visit seven years ago.
Before getting too far into his speech, he had to stop and call out his fellow Batman co-star… Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.)!
Senator Leahy actually has a bit of a Batman history!
He was a background actor in 1997's Batman & Robin, had his face grabbed and threatened with a knife by Heath Ledger's Joker in The Dark Knight and even had a speaking role in The Dark Knight Rises on the Wayne Enterprises board!
So Ben's little joke went over pretty well.
Check out the video (below) to see Ben Affleck being his wonderful, charismatic self, but also feel free to listen to his entire speech. He's a smart man with a lot of good things to say.
Sorry, Ben! LOLz!
Jennifer Garner went on The Tonight Show to participate in a dangerous game that plays like a cross between rock, paper, scissors and Russian roulette!!
It's called Rock, Paper, Scissors, Pie, and it's pretty much exactly what you think it is.
Jen and Jimmy play rock, paper, scissors, and the loser has to turn a handle that could randomly smash a white creme pie into their face.
And that's about the extent of the game. Unlike real Russian roulette, however, you can lose multiple times!
Check out the video (above) to see who's the best at Rock, Paper, Scissors, Pie!!
