Ben Affleck was photographed in Toronto yesterday on the set of Suicide Squad. Nerd Assumption then is that Batman will be making at least a cameo in the movie. Is Ben Affleck Batman to Suicide Squad what RDJ Iron Man is to the Avengers? I’m too much of a geek neophyte to know whether or not that’s an apt analogy but for those of us who don’t have a PhD in comic books, I could be into this…especially since the Avengers seem to be behaving like Lannisters right now. Full Story

Ben Affleck was featured in Finding Your Roots last year on PBS. During the research process, it was discovered that he had ancestors who were slave owners. He asked Henry Louis Gates Jr (Skip) to not include that part in the episode. Click here for a refresher if you missed that article from Monday. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It was reported yesterday that Ben Affleck’s name appears before Henry Cavill’s name in the credit listing for Batman vs Superman. This is usually negotiated in the contract. And some people are like, OMG, why? Please. This makes sense to everyone except for Henry Cavill fans.

Ben Affleck probably gets top billing over all but, maybe, 6 or 7 other people in Hollywood. And as I mentioned last week, even though he’s Superman – like, he’s SUPERMAN – Henry Cavill’s not actually that big of a deal overall. I’ve been thinking about this lately. About how famous people really are. Was talking to a friend last week about her brother.  Read Full Intro

This is really cute. And also really interesting. Ben Affleck was in DC today, along with Bill Gates, to address the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations. There was a Batman mention, obviously. I think he’s going to ride closer to the RDJ approach to being a superhero as opposed to the Christian Bale one: Mention it whenever you can. Full Story

Not even the Associated Press could resist this one. Because they're the ones giving us a gossip tease from the Oscars. According to the AP, during one of the commercial breaks on Sunday at the Oscars, Ben Affleck approached JLO and whispered in her ear. Whatever he said made her laugh, and then she "playfully" smacked him in the arm. Full Story

Best Director is a major award. It comes near the end. And we all know how it works by now. Normally they ask the legends, the big time big name big deal stars to present. Ben Affleck. Has two Oscars: for writing and for producing Argo. NOT for directing Argo though. That was his snub year. Full Story

You know anyone who doesn’t like Matt Damon? Everybody likes Matt Damon, right? Almost everybody has their detractors. But you never really hear anyone go off about how they can’t stand Matt Damon. Matt Damon and Adele. Here’s Matt Damon with wife Luciana at the ACE Awards on Saturday (George Clooney was there too). Full Story

Ben Affleck is in Atlanta working on The Accountant. He’s the Accountant but really he’s an assassin. Today he was in assassin mode, shooting a scene where he comes up from behind on a dude and stabs him in the chest. Oscar nominee and likely winner, JK Simmons, is also in this film along with Anna Kendrick. Full Story

Ben Affleck and Anna Kendrick are in Atlanta working on a new movie together called The Accountant. He balances the books by day and is an assassin by night. When I first heard about this project, two words jumped in my head: Reindeer Games. That said, I trust Anna Kendrick. She wouldn’t be in a Reindeer Games, would she? Olivia Munn has a puppy and she’s been taking her puppy along with her to promote Mortdecai. Full Story

Is it really a remake, though, or just a modern adaptation? Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Strangers on a Train was adapted from a novel by Patricia Highsmith of the same name. The title is most widely known as a Hitchcock movie, but I don’t know if a modern take actually counts as a remake of Hitchcock, or just a modern update on the novel. Full Story

Earlier this week I got a document in my email listing projected release dates for trailers, and I noticed that Superhero Face Punch had a projected February trailer date. I thought that was a bit odd since its release, March 25, 2016, is more than a year away. But today a screenshot purported to be from the first trailer surfaced on Reddit, and it shows the film has been split into two parts: Superhero Face Punch Part I: First Punch will come out on October 23, 2015 and Superhero Face Punch Part II: The Punchening will stick with the March 25, 2016 date. Full Story
