Joining the ranks of those celebs who have been asked for their opinion on the recent Batman casting of Ben Affleck, is Vin Diesel.
“I don’t give a f**k about Batman. Or who plays Batman,” he told Clevver Movies during an interview about his new film Riddick.
He later made a joke on the topic. Picking up a “fan” question from a jar during the interview, Diesel read, “Do you think you would make a good Batman?” before laughing, “Sorry guys, this was just too fun.”
The 46-year-old star has since come out in Affleck’s defense, insisting that fans and haters alike should just “leave him alone”.
“Let him live is my motto… let him live. Let Warner Bros hire whoever they want, let Ben do whatever he wants. He got an Oscar, give him some credit. Leave him alone.”
