Ben Affleck, the star of soon-to-be-released “Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice,” said he is not taking his four-year-old to the cinemas. He said the movie might scare his son.


Affleck pointed out that his son Samuel is an avid Batman fan. However, the movie features violence that is not suitable for the four-year-old.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Affleck shared in an interview that taking his child to watch the movie might end negatively. “Four years old is a little young to see this whole movie,” he said. “I don’t want him to have nightmares.”

Affleck previously mentioned he took up the role partly because his child would love to see him play Batman. In fact, knowing how much his son loves the character, he even dressed up as the dark knight at Samuel’s birthday party. He also faked a fight with the FedEx delivery guy. Samuel, of course, loved it.

So is he not going to bring any of his children to the movie? He might bring 10-year-old Violet. At the very least, the eldest girl can go watch the movie, which is rated PG-13.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner ended their marriage last year after a decade of being together. However, regardless of the split, the two are trying their best to be great parents for their children.

Moreover, even if he is the one playing a superhero character, the actor mentioned that it is his ex-wife who is a real superhero. Speaking at the superhero film’s New York City premiere when he hit the red carpet, the actor heaped praises on Garner’s parenting skills, as reported by People Magazine. He also told the media that parenting is really difficult but equally rewarding. He said he is trying his best to give quality time to his children.
