Ben Affleck is shaking in his Batman tights over doing stunts in his action flicks!
Word is the brawny wimp has freaked out after a recent string of tragic snafus killed a stunt guy and gal on the sets of “The Walking Dead” and “Deadpool 2” and Tom Cruise was injured shooting “Mission: Impossible 6.”
Now big Ben, who loves gambling with cards and once starred as the Daredevil, is reportedly terrified he’ll end up in a pine box or wheelchair from a movie mishap.
“These incidents have shaken Ben up in a big way,” said an insider to The National ENQUIRER. “He thinks it’s absolute madness for big-name actors to do that much stunt work themselves.”
The problem is he’s now the new Batman and starring in action flicks like “Justice League,” opening Nov. 17, and its sequel. A snitch blabbed that the six-foot-four scaredy-cat’s fear stems from stunts he tried for the 1998 flick “Armageddon.”
“It was just way too dangerous for him — he experienced too many close calls and near-accidents,” said the source. “Since then, the cream puff has let stuntmen and computer effects artists handle anything remotely tricky.”
Of course, he ends up looking like a WUSS, especially since gorgeous Gal Gadot, the star of the box office hit “Wonder Woman,” who co-stars in “Justice League,” is a mom of two and was once an Israeli soldier, reportedly does All her OWN stunts!
