Ben Affleck’s penis looks better in 3-D, apparently

Frankly, I don’t want to see Ben Affleck‘s penis in any dimension, but since he gets it out in Gone Girl, he’s been doing a lot of interviews to promote the film and questions are always asked about the full-frontal nudity. It’s apparently a short scene (no pun intended) but totally necessary to the character or whatever – and it looks better in 3-D!

From MTV News:

“I try to get it in every movie,” Affleck joked, after MTV pointed out that the movie includes what may be the first onscreen appearance of his Affl-ick. However, in this case it was director David Fincher who insisted on shining a bright light where the sun don’t shine, all in service of a film that captured the no-holds-barred cynicism of its source material.

“It’s ironic, because David [Fincher] said to me from the beginning, this is a warts and all movie. It can have no vanity. You have to see the naked underbelly of this character,” Affleck continued. And yes, when he says “naked underbelly,” he means it literally as well as figuratively.

“There’s some brief, ah, very brief nudity, I think,” Affleck hedged. But when reminded that people might well be going to see “Gone Girl” for literally no other reason than to get a glimpse of his wang, he capitulated.

“The penis is in there!” Affleck said. “It’s IMAX penis! You’ve gotta pay fifteen bucks to see it in 3D… it’s better in 3D.”

Uh… LOL, I guess?

I’ve read the book so I’m not quite sure if I want to see the movie, especially since hearing that they completely rewrote the entire climax of the story for the movie version. How is that a thing that you do? I know it has to be good for cinema, but… wouldn’t you just not adapt it if the main crux of the story didn’t fit?

Anyone else read the book? Do you plan on seeing the movie?

Ben Affleck really relates to Batman

For better or worse, Ben Affleck is our new Batman. It’s a very bizarre casting choice that I don’t think any of us will ever fully understand, so I think the best we can do is bite our tongues and move on. Besides, maybe we’re giving Ben too hard of a time. After all, he and Batman are a lot alike – they’ve got that whole smoldering anger thing in common!

From The Sunday Times:

“For me, anger is so deeply buried and contained,” Affleck, 42, told the paper, “that when it does kind of come out, it comes out in stronger bursts.”

“I tend to be respectful, polite, get along, put up with, put up with, put up with… Then, when it finally emerges, it’s not something I have a ton of control over.”

Well… that’s… good? And vaguely terrifying, though Ben promises that he doesn’t actually go into “Wolverine berserker mode”, which I guess is somewhat comforting.

“I should sit down and say, ‘Listen, I just want to let you know what happened there wasn’t okay,’ instead of going, let it go, let it go, let it go … ‘Ah, that’s not a big deal,’ until finally you just pop!”

But isn’t everyone like that? Most people don’t have a violent temper unless you push their buttons time and time and time again and then they just have to speak up. But there’s a difference between throwing a temper tantrum and going nutso, so let’s hope he’s on the lower end of the spectrum.

Anyhow, there you go. Ben Affleck and Batman = one in the same.

Here’s Your Batfleck

Ben Affleck is playing Batman and we’re all just going to have to deal with that. Director Zack Snyder, of the upcoming Batman V. Superman posted a tweet featuring a photo of Ben Affleck as Batman, AKA, Batfleck. Accompanying the tweet was simply “#75″. Here it is:

What do we think? There’s not a whole lot to go on. I’m impressed, he definitely looks like Batman, even with his Affleck chin. Does this make you more or less excited for the film?
