While promoting the upcoming drama “Dallas Buyers Club” at the Toronto Film Festival, actress Jennifer Garner got to talk about another big project coming out of her household in the near future: “Superman vs. Batman.”
While Superman will be portrayed by the returning man of steel Henry Cavill, Garner’s husband Ben Affleck won the role of Bruce Wayne — a definite high-profile role for even an Oscar winner like Affleck. Garner revealed to MTV News her initial reaction to learning that her husband had answered the Bat Signal’s call.
“You know, I was excited for him,” said Garner. “I was excited because he had a real take on what he wanted to do, and you know, I have to say, my husband is a pretty great storyteller himself, and I’m excited to watch him do it.”
Seeing her husband slipping into a super suit will undoubtedly bring back a bit of deja vu for the couple, considering that they first met while filming the 2003 Marvel Comic film “Daredevil.” The couple began dating after the film was released and were married in 2005, the same year that Garner took on the lead role in the superhero film “Elektra.”
Affleck originated the role of Daredevil on the big screen, but he’s just the latest in a long line of actors to fill the cape and cowl — actors that sometimes adopt a gruff Bat-voice. When asked if she has heard her husband testing out new voices, the actress, joked, “I hear every voice.”
Filming begins on the still-untitled Superman and Batman team-up film in early 2014. While there’s still no word as to whether or not Garner will ever power-up on the big screen again, her next film —”Dallas Buyers Club” — opens on November 1st.
