But that doesn’t mean the movie remains any less traumatic for its major players.
Case in point: Ben Affleck, who played Batman in the Warner Bros. DC commercial. Actors like Gal Gadot (who clashed with Joss Whedon during the return after Snyder had to abandon the project) and Ray Fisher (who also faced Whedon allegations of abuse) spoke out about their unpleasant experiences. But Affleck, in a recent interview by the Los Angeles Times supported his movie “The Tender Bar,” throwing in two cents about his tortured time on set. (Through the The Hollywood Reporter.)

Affleck’s comments were prompted by his own reflections about stepping down from directing “The Batman” (currently directed by Matt Reeves on March 4) in 2017.
“I looked at it and thought, ‘I’m not going to be happy doing this. The person who does this should love it. ‘ You have to always want these things, and I’d probably love to do it at 32 or something,” Affleck said. “But that’s when I started to realize it wasn’t worth it. It’s just a great benefit of reorienting and re-aligning your priorities that once it starts to lean towards the experience, I feel more at ease.”
