Ben Affleck's daughter thinks Harry Potter is cooler than Batman

For Ben Affleck, it ain’t easy being Batman.

First Ellen Degeneres had a Wonder Woman imposter scare the heck out of him, then costar Henry Cavill joked about disliking him on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and now Affleck’s own daughters aren’t even impressed that he’s donning the cape and cowl.

Speaking about his kids’ reaction to his headlining role in Batman v Superman, Affleck told E News on Friday, “I think the girls are into it but my oldest daughter is a super Harry Potter nut, so she’s wanted me to be in that. I told her, ‘I didn’t have the option to be in a Harry Potter movie — this is what I got.’”

He added that 10-year-old Violet and 7-year-old Seraphina might be more interested in Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman. “She’s a cool role model for girls,” he said.

Fortunately for Affleck, his 4-year-old son, Samuel, still digs the Dark Knight — and even had his old man dress up in full regalia for his superhero-themed birthday party.
