While attending the Toronto Film Festival for his latest movie which also stars Jake Gyllenhaal, The Prisoner, the actor is asked about Ben Affleck as Batman.
Jackman offers that Ben Affleck will crush it as Batman.
"I think it's great. Well, first of all I think Ben is a great actor and been underrated for a long time. He's obviously a great director. Very smart guy. That guy doesn't make decisions that aren't well thought out, that aren't great. You know what, he's a tough guy. He's a Boston kid, right. He's a tough guy. I think probably deep down he doesn't mind taking on something that is a little controversial. I know him a little bit, and I know he is going to relish the opportunity to just crush it. I have no doubt he is going to crush it."
