The Sad Affleck meme blew up last year after Batman v Superman came out.
‘Sad Affleck‘ refers to the look of dismay or sadness shown by actor Ben Affleck, who portrays Batman in the 2016 DC Comics superhero film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, during a Yahoo! UK interview in response to a question concerning the movie’s bad reviews.
Upon its release in March 2016, the video clip of Affleck somberly listening co-star Henry Cavill defending the movie and addressing the criticism quickly went viral, prompting the creation of parodies and remixes using sad music and imagery.
Here are the examples:
Asked recently by BBC Radio 1 what the film taught him, Affleck said: “It taught me not to do interviews with Henry Cavill where I don’t say anything and they can lay Simon & Garfunkel tracks over it. That’s one thing I learned.”
