Last summer, the world reeled at the news that Ben Affleck had been cast as an especially sad version of beloved DC Comics superhero Batman. But with Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice pushed back to 2016, everyone eventually stopped giving a shit. Also not giving a shit: Affleck's three kids.
His two daughters don't think it's cool that he's Batman, Affleck told Jimmy Fallon last night. Like every other child in America, they're mainly obsessed with Disney's Frozen—an obsession they've passed down to Affleck's young son.
And thus we're treated to the awkward modern spectacle of Batman, a billionaire technocrat and founding member of the Justice League, attempting to sing "Let It Go" to a 2-year-old's satisfaction.
He's the hero his family deserves, but not the one it needs right now.
