Ben Affleck on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"

Ben Affleck finally opened up about being cast as Batman on last night's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." The actor-director, who took home a Best Picture Oscar for "Argo" earlier this year, said he initially thought he could handle the inevitable backlash to the news of him donning the Bat Suit. But when he spotted even one internet comment (reading: "Noooooooo"), he opted to be a Luddite for a few days. Watch below.

Affleck also had some funny stories to tell about his kids. When his daughter saw a wax figure of Affleck at an exhibit in Las Vegas, her response was: "Daddy, why would anyone care?"

Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder's Superman/Batman sequel to "Man of Steel," co-starring Henry Cavill as Superman, hits theaters July 17, 2015.
