Despite this, Ben remains enthusiastic about the superhero concept and says the release of "Justice League" is occurring at the ideal moment. And because this is a group of lovely, superpowered people fighting to save the world, there will inevitably be some sexual tension between the men of the team and the lone female member. Justice League has been a long, hard production, and a lot is riding on the movie that sees Batman assembling the first team of heroes in the DCEU.
Unlike the female warriors in the Wonder Woman flick, which hit the big screen earlier this year, the actresses in the latest superhero blockbuster are sporting much skimpier outfits.
The DC Universe blockbuster is due to hit cinemas in the United Kingdom on November 17 and stars a big name cast, including Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher. All in under two hours. And now we're learning that another change came about during the Justice League reshoots, one that may plant seeds for the next few movies.
Mother Boxes: what the heck are they?
This increased tenfold when he made a decision to vacate the director's chair on The Batman, leading to rumours and reports that Affleck had already chose to exit the role and Matt Reeves would be recasting for his potential Dark Knight trilogy.
This is not a huge surprise, considering Batman and Superman's seductive introduction of Diana, and the somewhat clunky inclusion of Bruce Wayne in Wonder Woman.
And another track to note in the "Justice League" score is titled "The Final Battle".
Judging by the 280-character reviews provided on Twitter by the fortunate fans and critics who were lucky enough to catch the early screening of Justice League, the general consensus is that the film not ideal but is still plenty of fun with the banter between the superheroes finding a lot of fans.
But there's a chance that we may be reading too heavily into Affleck's quote, because the actor later quips, "You can't be around Jason Momoa and not have sexual tension".
Justice League is set for release in 3D, 2D and IMAX on 17 November.
