Casey Affleck on his brother, Ben, enjoying Batman: ‘He’s not going to do this film’

Ben Affleck and his brother, Casey, troll one another by the media. Before Casey gained the Oscar for Manchester By The Sea Ben told a bunch of highly embarrassing childhood and private tales about him, like the truth that Casey (allegedly) pulls his pants all the best way down at urinals (is that this in order that they don’t get splashback? IDK about man stuff like that), that Casey is petrified of butterflies and that he needed to ask if Back To The Future was a real story. (I imply Casey was 10 when it got here out, however he ought to have recognized higher.) So this newest story, about Casey saying that Ben is now not going to play Batman, could possibly be extra of the identical from these two. Plus I doubt they speak a lot. They frolicked earlier this month at a comedy present with Ben’s girlfriend, Lindsay Shookus. They don’t seem to be the kind of brothers who speak each day and even each week.

Anyway Casey was doing a radio interview with a sports activities radio present referred to as Dale & Holley out of Boston. (You can watch that under. It was in honor of Casey throwing out the first pitch at Fenway Park.) They talked quite a lot of sports activities in fact, and Casey informed a cute anecdote about the way it was his thought to do the Dunkin Donuts sketch for SNL. (Watch that if you happen to want amusing.) Dunkin Donuts truly despatched him a $50 present card after that. They requested Casey on if Ben can be within the standalone Batman film and when one man referred to as him “large” Casey stated:

“I assumed he was an OK Batman. No, he was nice. He was nice. He’s a hero, so he had one thing to channel and work with there. But he’s not going to do this film [The Batman], I don’t assume. Sorry to say.”

“Is that breaking information? Because I used to be simply type of making that up, I don’t know.”

You can watch that a part of the interview at 6:00 into the video under. Casey smiles very barely after which rapidly straightens his face out once more. I actually assume he’s messing with Ben. When requested if Casey would take his place he stated “I don’t assume so” and that he’s not going to do a superhero film as a result of “they’re all taken,” however “possibly in the event that they discovered one for me.”

Casey is messing with Ben and he is aware of that he’ll get headlines for saying this. Ben simply did an interview with EW through which he stated his Batman was going to be more “traditional” within the upcoming films. I interpret this as a sign that they’re dialing again Zach Snyder’s darkish, brooding, at all times having dream sequences character. We’ve already heard that Joss Whedon is stepping in as director for Justice League (which has needed massive reshoots) after Snyder suffered a private tragedy. Of course we heard that Ben wasn’t going to do Batman. Lots of people query his health and dedication to the position, however he’ll most likely plod alongside and pull it by final minute. It’s uncertain he’ll get sober once more for any size of time although, sadly.

Casey’s feedback on Ben come at about 6:00.
