Holy Bat­man! BEN HATES HENRY

In Touch (USA) - - In the know -

Bat­man v Su­per­man, in­deed! A source tells In Touch that off-cam­era, Ben Af­fleck, 43, and Henry Cav­ill, 32, can’t stand each other. “Ben hates Henry; he calls him a ‘stuffy Brit,’” says an in­sider, adding that Henry’s know-it-all at­ti­tude dur­ing the film­ing of Bat­man v Su­per­man: Dawn of Jus­tice irked Ben to no end. “Henry would try to make sug­ges­tions to the di­rec­tor, Zack Sny­der, and Ben would just roll his eyes. It also drove Ben ab­so­lutely nuts that Henry kept re­fer­ring to the film as the ‘Su­per­man se­quel,’ be­cause Ben didn’t think the first film [ Man of Steel] was all that spe­cial.” The feel­ing is mu­tual. “Henry wasn’t im­pressed with Ben’s non­cha­lant be­hav­ior on set, and he made that clear,” says the in­sider, adding they were forced to put on a happy face while pro­mot­ing the film. “They pre­tended to be friends — and that’s where the real act­ing took place.”

“Ben al­ways wished it was just a Bat­man movie — no Su­per­man,” says an in­sider.
