Ben Affleck suffered a minor injury on the Batman v Superman set

Aug. 15, 2014by:

Remember when Harrison Ford's "minor" STAR WARS: EPISODE VII injury turned out to be a pretty big deal? Well, the star of another major sequel has gotten himself hurt. This time it is Batman himself, Ben Affleck, who was injured last week on the set of BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE according to Batman News.

The site's news comes from the less than reliable tabloid Star but has supporting proof from set videos taken over the last month by fans.

The 41-year-old was sent home from set after straining his body due to a complicated move using his left shoulder. It was hurting him pretty bad, a source reveals. Hes putting his all into this role and its pretty physically demanding. The trips to the gym are two, sometimes three times a day and on set hes like a machine.

The video in question, embedded below, at the one minute mark shows Affleck talking with Zack Snyder and holding his shoulder gingerly. All indications are he has gotten over the injury at this point, but the sources also say it got bad enough that his stunt double was needed for a scene requiring Bruce Wayne to pick up a small child.

I am trying not to be an alarmist right now, but the Ford injury has made me concerned any time someone gets hurt. Affleck sounds like he is going full throttle to make the role of Batman a memorable one, but hopefully not at the cost of being ready to film JUSTICE LEAGUE or even work on his directorial projects as well.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE opens March 25, 2016.

Ouch! That must be really hurt. I once hurt my right shoulder during workout and not only it strained my right shoulder it also strained the back of my neck. It really hurt when I tried to move my neck or bow down at the time. I think Ben Affleck must be suffering from similar injury. I hope he get well soon.

I love how all of these actors are going all out for their films. But they need to be around so we can enjoy them for years to come. Speedy recovery to both.

I doubt it's very serious, but it was disconcerting to see his stunt/stand-in double being directed for what looked like some non-stunt scenery. I think Affleck is shooting the bulk of his scenes right now so he'll probably be able to make it. He doesn't have to shoulder the burden of the whole film (no pun intended) as it's going to be split between himself, Eisenberg and Cavill at the very least, to say nothing of Gale Gadot and Jason Momoa, etc.
