Jennifer Garner is loving her husband Ben Affleck’s new and improved physique!
The Academy Award-winning actor has been quite busy filming the highly-anticipated Man of Steel sequel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice!
Of course, he puts in work when the cameras are rolling, but it’s the gratuitous effort he’s been making off-camera that has his wife’s attention.
The Gone Girl star has reportedly bulked up for his new superhero role and his wife is quite pleased with his muscular physique!
The Dallas Buyers Club actress recently stopped by Live With Kelly & Michael where she chatted with Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan.
The upcoming film was one of the first topics in the discussion, reports E! News. Of course, his armored Batsuit is designed with a ripped, embellished muscular exterior, but fans are wondering what his body looks like underneath the armor.
Kelly asked, “Does he look just as ripped underneath the costume?” Jennifer had no reservations about doting on her husband’s Batman body transformation!
“You know, he has put on 30 pounds of muscle and he’s 8 percent body fat,” she revealed. “He looks pretty good. It’s a little bit like, ‘Whoa, who are you?’ It feels like I’m having an affair. But I don’t mind, I’m not complaining,” she admitted.

After he signed on to do the film last year, he immediately began making trips to the gym. As a matter of fact, he was reportedly urged to slow down because he was transforming so quickly. Since he was also filming Gone Girl at that same time, the distinct change was becoming a bit noticeable.
Trish Summerville, the costume designer for Gone Girl, spoke with E! about his body transformation back in November of 2013.
“I’m trying to keep him at the size he’s at right now until he’s done with us,” Summerville said. “He’s a really big guy, like he’s quite tall. You don’t realize how big he is. He kind of reads smaller on film than he does in real life.”
Ben Affleck is definitely expected to deliver a stellar performance in the new film. He’s not even done filming and Jennifer Garner is already pleased with his progress, thus far!
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is tentatively scheduled to hit theaters nationwide on March 25, 2016!
