Ben Affleck does not look back fondly on his time making Lega della Giustizia.
The actor reprised his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne in the 2017 film, which saw director Joss Whedon take over the project after original filmmaker Zack Snyder stepped away from the movie after his 20-year-old daughter’s death by suicide.
Parecchi Lega della Giustizia costars have spoken out against Whedon’s alleged behavior on set of the film, including Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot, who recalled being “scioccato” by how he spoke toward her during production. Inoltre, Ray Fisher, who played Cyborg, accused Whedon of being “schifoso, abusivo, unprofessional and completely unacceptable.” (An official investigation by WarnerMedia ended with “remedial action.”)
Though he doesn’t mention Whedon by name, Affleck told the Los Angeles Times that making Lega della Giustizia turned out to be the “worst experience” because of many reasons. (The film shoot had been plagued by a variety of issues, including delays, budget issues, script changes, as well as the last-minute director change late in filming, which resulted in extensive reshoots.)
“Era davvero Lega della Giustizia that was the nadir for me. That was a bad experience because of a confluence of things: my own life, my divorce, being away too much, the competing agendas and then Zack’s personal tragedy and the reshooting,” said Affleck. “It just was the worst experience. It was awful.”
Il Tender Bar attore aggiunto, “It was everything that I didn’t like about this. That became the moment where I said, ‘I’m not doing this anymore.’ It’s not even about, Come, Lega della Giustizia was so bad. Because it could have been anything.”

In ottobre, Affleck alluded to the challenging Lega della Giustizia production while speaking with Varietà, sharing what it was like to play Batman again for the upcoming Flash film, which is directed by Andy Muschietti.
“Era un really nice way to revisit that as the prior experience had been difficult,” disse all'epoca, adding that working on Il flash dopo Lega della Giustizia “was really lovely” e “really fun.”
“I had a great time,” said Affleck, then joking of the secretive project, “I’m probably under some gag order that I’m not even aware that I probably just violated and I’m now going to be sued.”
