Ben Affleck Ripped on Twitter After Joking About Hollywood's Sex Abuse Scandal

While giving an interview to a leading U.S. publication, Affleck noted, "The new Batman movie being developed by Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes) is something I'm contemplating". "They're now shopping for rings, but they agreed she won't wear one immediately so they can keep their engagement private", the insider says.

"Black Canary", the 45-year-old responded. We'll have more as the news develops.

This is the second of three exclusive interviews that Channel24 did with the cast of Justice League.

Cyborg actor Ray Fisher then chose comic book magician Zatanna as his dream addition, to which Ben suggested this was due to her "fishnets", after which the interviewer asked: "What would you get up to if you had, like, Supergirl... joining the team?"

THERE IS a moment in the new "Justice League" when the Caped Crusader urges Wonder Woman in the ways of team leadership - Batmansplaining, if you will, but with a well-intentioned goal. Ben interjected jokingly hinting to the recent sexual harassment claims which have rocked Hollywood. There is an awkward silence from the cast before Ray continues his explanation. He apologized for his behavior, but considering how many sexual harassment allegations have been surfacing lately, it's a touchy subject.

The video has begun to circulate on Twitter, as well as screengrabs of Ben's co-stars reactions to his comment.

Back in October, Affleck apologised for acting "inappropriately" towards actress Hilarie Burton in a 2003 TV appearance after footage re-emerged of him appearing to touch Burton while being interviewed on MTV's Total Request Live.

Ben, who has two young daughters, took to social media to issue an apology.

Got a story tip?

Again, I want to heavily stress that this is nothing more than a rumor, but I feel like it could provide a nice jumping off point for conversation, so let's indulge it for a minute.
