Ben Affleck Confirms Senator Patrick Leahy For Batman Vs. Superman (Video)
Ben Affleck recently testified at a Senate Hearing to discuss foreign aid and diplomacy for Congo.
While addressing the committee, Affleck confirmed that Senator Patrick Leahy has a role in Batman Vs. Superman.
"To Senator Leahy, I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge my co-star in Batman," Affleck said. "The role is marginally smaller than mine but I understand you're quite good."
The Vermont Democrat was previously rumored for the movie, and Batman Vs. Superman does have scenes set in Washington D.C.
Patrick Leahy also appeared in 1997's Batman and Robin, 2008's The Dark Knight, and 2012's The Dark Knight Rises.
Affleck makes the statement around the 1:45 mark in the following video.
