'Sad Affleck' Shows Batman's Sadness
Ben Affleck couldn’t contain his composure in a recent interview discussing the poor reviews Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has received. The moment went viral after fans made a mash of it with Simon and Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence”.
Affleck, who sat next to star Henry Cavill during a Yahoo! interview, seemed to be getting out of hand when interviewers critiqued his new film. Cavill went out of his way to defend the film, saying, “The interesting thing is that we get direct criticism of their personal thinking.”
In this viral video, edited by YouTube user Sabconth, Cavill’s words are muffled while Affleck’s face is magnified. Affleck regained his composure after the interviewer called his name. “I agree,” he said supporting Cavill’s response. This video, entitled “Sad Affleck”, has been viewed more than 11 million times. Dawn of Justice has started airing since July 25.
