Jennifer Garner got in trouble for talking about Batman vs Superman

Apr. 10, 2014by: Alex Maidy

Take this for what it's worth but Jennifer Garner is no longer going to be providing any inside information regarding BATMAN VS SUPERMAN. Being married to Ben Affleck, Garner most assuredly gets to hear some of what is going on involving her husband's big superhero role. Back in January, the DRAFT DAY star said she had seen the new Batsuit and called it a "total reinvention" which also supported similar comments from Affleck's buddy, Kevin Smith.

When asked for more tidbits by Collider, Garner was mum.

Dude, I have gotten in some trouble for my little quotes and I'm learning to [makes zipped lips motion]. I thought that I was saying things that were foregone conclusions and it turns out nothing is, and you won't be hearing from me on the Batman front [any more].

So, either Garner's comments hit too close to home for Warner Bros or the studio is not taking any chances and wants to lock down the rumor mill so they can control the release of information. Now, more than ever, with BATMAN VS SUPERMAN likely going head to head with CAPTAIN AMERICA 3, WB and DC need to make sure everything is perfect. They have already endured major backlash regarding the casting of Affleck, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.

Part of me thinks that if the studio was confident in their product, they wouldn't mind a little buzz from a harmless comment from someone not directly involved with BATMAN VS SUPERMAN. But, at the same time, I can see they want to take zero chances with such a monumental production.

BATMAN VS SUPERMAN hits theaters on May 6, 2016.

Stop sucking off Snyder

The guy has made 2 good movies, two out of 6. He isn't some perfect director who makes gold every time he shits. He is mediocre and only does well when he isn't making shitty comic book movies like Man of Steel and Sucker Punch. He also brought us that horrible Owls of Ha'Gool and the even worse Dawn of the Dead remake.

The guy isn't that talented. He made 300 and Watchmen, and even Watchmen was flawed. His "vision" is so outdated. He might have been cool in 2006, but today he is just a hack.

If that is how you really feel then just ignore this movie and any news of it and just wait for the remake in 10 years or so.

I think...

that Ben Affleck will make an OK Batman, compared to Keaton and Bale before him. However, I think that he will make Snyder a better director, which is what this movie really needs. He will make this film better in front of and behind the camera.

Agreed. I'm optimistic that Snyder will pull all these characters together in a good way. And I think Affleck will be better than people (fanboys) are expecting.

She didn't do or say anything wrong.

But the biggest and most vital aspect of Batman vs Superman is going to be Affleck. I believe the majority of this film's success weighs on his shoulders. And I for one think he is going to make a terrific Bruce Wayne and Batman.

While it may not seem like she did not do anything wrong. Whether you are in the military. The govt. Journalism or an actor. When youre told to keep your mouth shut about upcoming projects, you keep your fucking mouth shut.

You have a point, but I wouldn't compare someone like her and the military together in the same context.

Grammar police: you used a double negative, The_Conman. "It may not seem like she did not do anything wrong" means "it may seem she did anything wrong", which is not what you meant.

Don't have to thank me. I'm just doing my job: roaming the internet and correcting poorly worded sentences. My English major is my badge, and the only purpose left for that degree.

Poor Garner, wasn't she just stating the obvious or do WB really believe their audience are dumb?

They weren't comfortable with Jonah Hex. Don't you remember the behind the scenes struggles they had with that film? That movie was in a constant state of flux, mostly thanks to the meddling studio.
