Before Ben Affleck agreed to play the caped crusader in Warner Bros.' untitled Batman-Superman movie, the 41-year-old actor was warned that his casting might create controversy. Appearing on NBC's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Monday, Sept. 16, the actor addressed critics who were hoping to see someone else share the screen with Man of Steel's Henrey Cavil E Online reports.

"They called me up and said, 'Do you wanna do this?' And I thought, 'Well, I'm not 25, man. Are you sure about this?'" Affleck told host Jimmy Fallon. After discussing the tone of the film with director Zack Snyder, Affleck was on board. Before the announcement was made, however, studio executives wanted to ensure the Oscar winner knew what was at stake.
