    Remembering his early days as Batman, Affleck recollects, "There were some people who showed some unhappiness. Not everybody was polite." This initial backlash, however, did not deter him. He embraced the role, bringing a unique interpretation to the iconic character. "He's a little older, a little more broken," Affleck described his version of Batman, marking a departure from previous iterations.

    Beyond the silver screen, Affleck's commitment to humanitarian work remains impressive. His involvement with the Eastern Congo Initiative and collaboration with Starbucks brought significant changes. "We've tripled the income of 25,000 farmers, we've sold enough coffee to Starbucks now for 11 million cups of coffee," he proudly stated, showcasing his profound impact beyond Hollywood.

    In a candid moment, Affleck expressed his disillusionment with the political climate, highlighting a global perspective. "There's very little that I find more depressing than the political climate these days," he lamented, emphasizing the importance of democratic values. On a personal note, discussing his split from Jennifer Garner, Affleck showed grace and respect, praising her as "a fabulous person, a wonderful person. She's a great mother, she's a real talent."

    In retrospect, Affleck's journey as Batman mirrors his own life – full of challenges, yet marked by resilience and a commitment to making a positive impact. His evolution from a controversial choice to a revered performer and humanitarian reflects the multifaceted nature of a true Hollywood icon.
