Ben Affleck Admits To Wearing Daredevil Boxers Under His Batsuit

batmanBy now, you have probably seen the first photos of Ben Affleck in his Batsuit that rocketed around the internet yesterday, Modern Philosophers.

Holy free publicity, Batman!  Holy wild speculation, Batman fans!

I just read an article on Yahoo! News that theorized that the photos were leaked in black and white because Ben’s new threads are not the color one might expect.

I didn’t give the matter much thought because in my eyes, Ben will forever be Holden from Chasing Amy.  He’ll also always be the guy who stole Jennifer Garner from me, but that’s a matter for another blog post.

I was forced to form some Deep Thoughts on the subject today, however, when Ben called The House on the Hill to chat about the iconic superhero, the new suit, and all the rumors about the upcoming film.

Ben AffleckWhile we discussed many things, the conversation always came back to the Batsuit.  That’s when the Oscar winner stunned me with this bit of news: “I love the new Batman outfit, I’m pumped to take over the franchise, and I think we’re going to make an excellent movie.  But I don’t want to get too confident or full of myself, so to keep levelheaded, I wear Daredevil boxers under the Batsuit.”

Wait.  You what?

“I wear Daredevil boxers under my Batman costume,” he repeated.  “So whenever you see Batman up on the big screen looking all fierce and bad ass, keep in mind he’s wearing a pair of hot red boxers covered in the Daredevil logo.”

I was definitely not expecting that fashion scoop, Modern Philosophers.

“Making Daredevil was a great experience for me,” Affleck explained when he realized I was still too stunned by his revelation to ask any follow up questions.  “It really upset me that the flick wasn’t well received and I got so much flack for my performance.  Daredevil is an awesome superhero, and I thought we presented his story with all the respect the character deserved.”

ElektraTruth be told, Modern Philosophers, all I really remember about the movie is Jennifer Garner in her slinky Elektra costume.

In fact, I wish I were wearing Elektra boxers under my toga right now.  I’ll ask the interns to scour the internet for a pair tomorrow.

As for the man who married Elektra (lucky bastard!), he didn’t think his boxer revelation was a big deal.  “Every actor has a way of preparing for a role,” he continued.  “For this movie, I want to keep myself humble and focused.  By wearing my Daredevil boxers under the Batsuit, I am not only able to accomplish that goal, but I can also keep myself extremely comfortable.”

Since I knew I was safe because Ben and his big Batman muscles were thousands of miles away, I asked him what sort of boxers he was wearing when he got banned from that casino for counting cards.

He laughed, told me I was lucky he wasn’t at The House on the Hill at the moment, and then replied, “Actually, I was wearing my Gigli thong.”

Saw what you will about Mr. Affleck, but the guy has got a great sense of humor…

    I think I was one of the few people who liked the movie, “Daredevil.” I wanted another one to be made but alas, instead there were remakes of bunches of other movies that I could have done without.

    Batman with Michael Keaton in 1989 was very well done. The recent prequels were good, too.
