Batman v Superman reviews video gets sad remix

Posted on

Yahoo!

With Leonardo DiCaprio having won his first Oscar in February, the Internet has slowly moved on from its obsession with sad memes of the Revenant star. But now another A-list actor is stepping in to fill the void: Batman v Superman star Ben Affleck.

Affleck and his Batman v Superman costar, Henry Cavill, recently answered a question from Yahoo Movies UK about the film’s largely negative reviews. While Cavill responded by saying he believes the opinion of a ticket-buying audience is what really matters, Affleck remained silent, adding a simple “I agree” after Cavill finished. Now, the awkward moment has been remixed thanks to the fan-made video below that puts an extra sad spin on the original clip with a little help from Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence.”

Affleck has plenty of reasons to turn that frown upside down, however, as Batman v Superman is expected to top the weekend box office after grossing $27.7 million on Thursday night (more than Avengers: Age of Ultron made on its first Thursday night last year), and his next directorial feature, Live By Night, was recently announced for an October 2017 release.
