Ben Affleck Finally Responded to That Sad Batfleck Meme

At least he has a sense of humor about it.

Sad Batfleck Finally Responded to That Sad Batfleck Meme

Ben Affleck was one of the more meme-able celebrities of 2016 — you can thank Batman V. Superman, which tanked at the box office, and a bizarre rant on a since-canceled sports talk show, for that. And in this time of great turmoil, Sad Batfleck was born. 

The meme video featured the actor "responding" to terrible Batman V Superman reviews by sitting silently and starring into a dark void while Simon and Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence" played on in the background.

Because it's a brand new year, and Ben Affleck probably wants to make peace with the video and move on with life — or move on to The Batman — the actor broke his silence in an interview with the esteemed folks at the BBC. When asked what lessons he learned from the meme, it was this: 

"It taught me not to do interviews with Henry Cavill where I don’t say anything and they could lay Simon and Garfunkel tracks over it, that’s one thing I learned."

Well said, Batfleck. Well said. Glad to see you have a sense of humor about it. 

And for your Wednesday enjoyment, watch the original meme video below.
