Has Ben Affleck Always Been Batty?

According to Kevin Smith, our new Batman, Ben Affleck once built the Batcave in an entrance to his house.

"His house that I would end up buying, when I first saw it he was touring me through the place and said, ‘Come here, I gotta show you my room.’ He brings me into the room and goes, ‘Look at this.’ There’s an office room and this beautiful bookcase - he reached under and he clicked something and all of a sudden the bookcase opened. I was like, ‘No! You built a f**king Batcave?’ And he was like, ‘No I built a Batcave entrance!’ When you went in behind the bookcase it was a panic room."
According to Smith, that’s not where Affleck’s love for Batman started, either.
"This dude has loved Batman going as far back as I can remember. He only did Daredevil because he loved Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns," Kevin said.

"He’s like, ‘They’re never going to make another Batman,' because this was after Batman had nipples. So he was like, 'Daredevil's cool, and Miller wrote him as well.' So he liked the character, but it was always rooted in Batman.”

Ben’s been getting a lot of negative feedback about gaining the role. Between fans online and trending topics on Twitter like “Better Batman Than Affleck,” it’s no secret that people aren’t enthused about the actor taking on the part of the caped crusader; but Kevin Smith's been there to defend his friend, saying that “He's always been into the notion. He'll honor the character. I honestly think the dude's a great actor, it makes absolute sense.”
No official word from DC has been announced, but the sequel to Man of Steel is rumoured to be titled Superman vs Batman, and is scheduled out in 2015.
