Of Course Sen. Patrick Leahy Will be in the next Batman Film

Ben Affleck Talks 'Batman' During Senate Hearing

It’s no secret that Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy is a huge Batman fan. He’s had cameo roles in a couple of recent Batman films, including Batman and Robin, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, and Batman: The Animated Series. It comes as little surprise that he’ll have a cameo in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice:

Actor Ben Affleck gave away a closely held secret about the upcoming “Batman” film while testifying on Capitol Hill this morning.

“To Senator Leahy, I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge my co-star in Batman. The role is marginally smaller than mine but I understand you’re quite good,” Affleck said to Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, at a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing on diplomacy and development.

Word comes after Affleck testified on Capitol Hill the other day. (via)
