You know it wouldn't be long before the paparazzi nailed Kevin Smith about Ben Affleck as Batman, and that's just what happened.
TMZ posted the following video featuring Kevin Smith sharing his thoughts on Batman where the writer/director says he couldn't be happier.
Smith goes on to joke that in a way he "trained Batman," as well as "made Ben Affleck."
We're guessing this isn't the last we'll hear from Kevin Smith as he happens to be a huge Batman fan and has even written the character for DC Comics.
Affleck and Smith worked together on Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma and Jersey Girl.
The sequel to "Man of Steel" goes into production next year for a July 17, 2015 release also starring Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.
