Ben Affleck reportedly injured his shoulder early last week on the set of Zack Snyder’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” according to Star Magazine.
The publication claims the 42-year-old was sent home after straining his body due to a complicated move using his left shoulder. Their source says:
“It was hurting him pretty bad. He’s putting his all into this role and it’s pretty physically demanding. The trips to the gym are two, sometimes three times a day and on set he’s like a machine.”
Batman News has been following the filming with all the set videos and photo leaks and says they may be right.
“[In one video] Affleck can clearly be seen nursing his left shoulder as an EMS provider checks it out. The very next day, Affleck’s stunt double was doing all the heavy lifting… literally. The scene involved Bruce Wayne picking up a small child and Affleck didn’t participate.”
In either case it wasn’t too serious, Affleck was back on set a few days later and production is still on schedule to wrap in November.
