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.
