According to reports, Ben Affleck has a flabby body and requires the use of a body double on the Batman movie set. Is Jennifer Garner making fun of the fatman? Ben Affleck’s, ahem, ‘performance’ in the next Batman movie is all anybody’s going to talk about once the movie comes out, and heck, it’s all anyone can talk about even a year before the movie’s coming out. We’ve seen Ben Affleck train incredibly hard to get his body into fighting shape to play Batman, but a new report from the National Enquirer claims that the bulk was all an illusion.
According to them, Ben was so ‘flabby’ during filming that the producers had to bring in a body double and use him frequently. A ‘source’ tells the Enquirer, “The star showed up looking so flabby for a shirtless boxing scene that producers immediately hired a ripped body double – and ended up using him so frequently as the Batman stand-in that snarky crew members sneakily started calling Ben ‘Fatman’ behind his back!”
See, we can’t have it both ways. Either Ben Affleck bulked up using the help of steroids and/or ridiculous amounts of training, or he just put on a ton of weight and became flabby. As much as I’d like to see people calling Ben ‘Fatman’, there’s too much visual proof that Ben did get bulked up to play Batman. I mean, Ben Affleck’s body in every single set picture released shows that he worked hard at his new physique, and ‘Fatman’ would be the furthest thing in the world to describe him.
Besides, Jennifer Garner wouldn’t have missed an opportunity to call Ben ‘Fatman’, if it was true. Do you guys agree? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below. What are your thoughts on Ben Affleck’s body?
