Happy birthday, Ben Affleck! The ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ star is turning 43 today, August 15! Ben has had a year full of ups and downs, and we’d like to help him celebrate this special day.
Ben Affleck is 43 today, August 15! Ben’s made enviable career moves, but things in his personal life have been difficult this year. We’re such fans of Ben’s work, and can’t wait to see him protect Gotham in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice! Today, let’s talk Ben’s past year, and what he has to look forward to in the next!
Who else is excited that Ben is the next Batman? We’ve seen the pictures of Ben in his Batsuit, along with Henry Cavill as Superman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and we’re more certain than ever: this is going to be one of the best superhero blockbusters of next year!
Not only is Ben portraying the Dark Knight in Batman v Superman, but he’s also appearing with Jared Leto, Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and so many others, in Suicide Squad. The dark and dirty film about the villains of DC is going to be so weird and wild; we’re just wondering what kind of role Batman’s got in this!
Though Ben only has superhero work slated for the next year, we’re not going to forget his horrifying turn in 2014’s Gone Girl. His shocking role as the husband of a wife who mysteriously disappears will haunt our dreams for a long time. Good work, Ben!
Sadly, his amazing Batman news has lately been overshadowed by something huge in his personal life: his split with his wife of 10 years, Jennifer Garner. It’s such a sad situation, and we hope the best for both of them. Hopefully, on his birthday, the whole family can get together and have some fun!
HollywoodLifers, help us wish Ben a happy birthday in the comments!
