    Despite the backlash that followed Warner Bros.' announcement that Ben Affleck will suit up as Batman in the Man of Steel sequel, the Oscar winner has at least one fan rooting him on: wife Jennifer Garner. The actress, who began dating Affleck after the two costarred in 2003's Daredevil, opened up about the controversial casting at last week's Toronto Film Festival and said she has every confidence her hubby's going to knock it out of the park. "I was excited for him," Garner told MTV News. "I was excited because he had a real take on what he wanted to do, and you know, I have to say, my husband is a pretty great storyteller himself, and I'm excited to watch him do it."
