Ben Affleck on how not to become a meme material
Both Affleck and Cavill were promoting their respective projects, ‘The Tender Bar‘ (for which Affleck just got nominated for a Golden Globe) and ‘The Witcher‘. A day apart, they spoke with Fox 5 Washington DC and were asked whether they had a message for each other.
Affleck responded jokingly: “Do not drift off while talking to Henry, because they will zoom in on you, and play a Simon & Garfunkel song, and you will never live it down”.

Ben Affleck on doing IP movie
Affleck stated in a separate interview with “The Playlist” that after his appearance as Batman in the upcoming ‘The Flash‘ film, he is most likely done with IP films. He explained that television represents something different. And when it happened with ‘The Last Duel’, he thought to himself, “That’ll probably be his last theatrical release”. He isn’t interested in doing IP films with such a large audience. That was something he was interested in and enjoyed, but it is no longer something he enjoys. It appeals to him when he sees other people doing it. And if one is going to do it, they should enjoy it. He enjoys experimenting with new things. So that’s what he wants to do. What matters most to him is that people notice it because it is in a limited theatrical release, which is fantastic.
He further said that he knows that most people watch movies on Amazon, and he wants the audience to see his movie because that is what really matters to him.
