‘Man of Steel’ hater Anthony Mackie loved Ben Affleck as Batman (video)

Marvel star Anthony Mackie made headlines last year when he brutally bashed Man of Steel. In a new interview during Captain America: Civil War promotion, that interview was brought up, and Mackie explained that he saw Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and had a very different opinion. Mackie especially liked Ben Affleck as Batman.

“The interesting thing about that interview, that whole conversation I was saying how much I liked the character of Superman, and how I liked the old Superman, and how it deterred from that line, but after seeing Batman v Superman, I’m very glad they brought it back. I feel like, I said, with your friend who cut that to make it look like I said that, which I didn’t, but anybody will do anything. When I saw that movie I was really excited about it because I said Ben Affleck would be the perfect Batman, and when you see the movie he is the best thing about the movie. He shines as Batman.”

If you missed it, here’s the interview from last October of Anthony Mackie ripping into Man of Steel:
