While Ben Affleck is pretty much tired of the Batman questions while promoting his latest movie, Live By Night, how about some Batman vs. Superman questions?

The BBC asks Ben Affleck what it was like working on such a huge movie and what he may have learned from it. Affleck responds by stating, "It taught me not to do interviews with Henry Cavill where I don't say anything and they can lay Simon and Garfunkel tracks over it. That's one thing I learned."

If you are not up to speed, Ben Affleck is talking about doing an interview for Batman vs. Superman alongside Henry Cavill. The attention was on Henry Cavill, who was talking about the movie, with Affleck seemingly daydreaming a bit. Online users took the footage and over-layed Simon and Garfunkel's "Sound of Silence" and it went viral as "Sad Affleck."

Regarding what Affleck did learn, he says the technology came a long way since his last large scale movie with 1998's Armageddon. Ben Affleck also lets it be known that Warner Bros. gave him a replica of the Batsuit, which he keeps on display in his house, and he also has the real Batarang from the film. Affleck also takes a shot at the critics by stating he got a lof of positive response from people, "which was nice, but that's not what I got from the critics." Watch more below.
