Ben Affleck injured on set of Batman V Superman

August 15th, 2014 by Andrew McCarroll Comments

Reports from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice indicate that Batman himself, Ben Affleck, was injured preforming a stunt in the much anticipated 2016 release.

A Star Magazine source commented “It was hurting him pretty bad. He’s putting his all into this role and it’s pretty physically demanding. The trips to the gym are two, sometimes three times a day and on set he’s like a machine.”

The onset video below shows Affleck favoring his shoulder while being attended to by the set medical team.

Affleck is now back on the set following a two day break but has been instructed to take it easy. Videos from the set seem to indicate that his stunt double has been entrusted with the (literal) heavy lifting until the star is cleared by doctors to perform his own stunts again.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is scheduled for release March 25, 2016

Andrew McCarroll never quite built on the dizzying career heights that he hit at 6 years old, when as a member of the “Ghostbusters” he would charge his neighbours to remove any unwanted spectres. Now retired from slaying spooks, he spends his time obsessing over superheroes (especially Batman) and devouring shows like Dexter, Game of Thrones and Archer in a manner that would make Galactus proud.
