Friday marks the release of Warner Brothers' massive superhero flick Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice — which naturally means Ben Affleck has been making the rounds to help promote the movie.
On Thursday night, the 43-year-old stopped by The Tonight Show to chat it up with Jimmy Fallon and OF COURSE played a game.
Seeing as how Affleck suits up as Batman in the epic action/adventure film, Jimmy decided to play a superhero themed version of Pup Quiz with the star. (HINT: The puppies are dressed as heroes!)
Ch-ch-check out the Hollywood stud play the most heroic game of Pup Quiz ever (above) and chat it up with Fallon about Batman v Superman (below)!
We always thought Ben Affleck was a pretty good choice for Batman.
But it turns out the best Dark Knight was right under our noses the entire time — Man Of Steel star Amy Adams!
On this week's Graham Norton Show, Ben, Amy, and Henry Cavill stopped by to promote Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
After Batfleck demonstrated how the Batman voice worked, Amy had to have a turn as well — and it's the best!
See all three do their best Caped Crusader (below)!
A few years ago, Jennifer Garner helped Halle Berry pass California state legislation making it illegal for paparazzi to harass minors with famous parents!
During her testimony for the anti-papz bill, the actress told the committee that her son Samuel was terrified of the shutterbugs and flashing lights when ambushed by photographers.
Garner admitted that before the bill passed, 6 paparazzi cars were parked outside their home every day — and up to 15 to 20 cars on weekends!
While the legislation "has made things better," the actress said she and her children are still regularly followed and photographed — and her now 4-year-old son does not love all the attention.
The famous momma told the TV doctor every time her son sees the papz, he says:
If you just have to know what Ben Affleck is like as the new Batman or prefer your Henry Cavill in skintight spandex and dating a woman his own age, bad reviews won't deter you from seeing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
But you may want to take a look at all of the film's "good" reviews instead.
As of this writing, BvS has a discouraging 37% on RottenTomatoes, the site that rates films based on an aggregate of dozens of reviews.
That percentage is based on how many of the reviews are "fresh" — or generally considered positive, as opposed to "rotten".
So already, not great. BUT it gets worse….
See, we noticed that all the "fresh" reviews aren't so much positive as full of glass-half-full, can-do spirit in the face of adversity. Kind of like choking down your hot boyfriend's terrible cooking. After all, he tried so hard. And he's hot.
Here's a sampling of the half-hearted recommendations (and keep in mind these are the POSITIVE reviews):
Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is only a few days away from being released and we're getting more and more excited for the superhero team up.
We already knew that the film will feature both Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as the caped crusader, as well as Gal Gadot's highly anticipated introduction as Wonder Woman, but there are some other heroes showing up too!
Not only is Ray Fisher popping up as Cyborg, but Jason Mamoa will have an appearance as Aquaman, as will Ezra Miller's The Flash!
But wait, don't we already have a Flash in Grant Gustin thanks to the CW's hit show??
Ever since Miller's casting was announced though, there's been a question about why the studio didn't try and link the television universe — The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, DC Legends of Tomorrow — to what they were doing cinematically.
While plenty of stars have spoken about the issue including Gustin and Arrow's Stephen Amell, Snyder finally opened up about why he didn't cast Gustin, saying:
The reviews are in… sort of!
Comic book fans are very opinionated about how their beloved superheroes are portrayed on the big screen.
But according to early social media reviews of Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, fans of the Dark Knight have nothing to worry about — because the response is overwhelmingly positive!
On Sunday, lucky audiences got a first look at the highly anticipated flick at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
While the professional critics have to wait until Tuesday to give their full reviews, nothing stopped the vociferous audience from sharing their thoughts on Twitter!
Aside from the consensus that the film was a million times better than Man Of Steel, fans agreed that Ben Affleck's Batman did not disappoint — and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman was a wondrous highlight, too!
Ch-ch-check out the (spoiler free) fan responses (below) to get excited for Batman v Superman in theaters Thursday, March 24!
At least Ben Affleck knows when to give a compliment!
On Sunday, Ben couldn't stop gushing about Jennifer Garner's mothering skills at the New York City premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The shower of compliments comes on the heels of Jen's revealing and emotional Vanity Fair article about the pair's July divorce and friendly run in at the Oscars. Given the recent positivity, we're not too surprised that the actor thinks the world of his ex!
Dishing to E! News, Mr. Affleck said of Garner's "amazing" mommy expertise:
