During another interview, Affleck also talked about what it was like to make Justice League. Surprisingly, the actor said that it was an awful experience for him.

That was a bad experience because of a confluence of things: my own life, my divorce, being away too much, the competing agendas, and then Zack’s personal tragedy and the reshooting. It just was the worst experience. It was awful. It was everything that I didn’t like about this,’” Affleck said.
