What a joker!

Looks like Ben Affleck has folded after reportedly being turned away from the blackjack table at a Las Vegas casino. The actor was banned for life from playing the game at the Hard Rock Cafe in Vegas ­after security officers busted him counting cards.

Affleck was in Vegas on a short vacation with his wife, Jennifer Garner, before he is scheduled to begin filming for Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs. Superman.

"You are too good at the game," casino security reportedly told him, according to some sources. Counting cards - usually only reserved for the rain men among us - is not technically illegal, but is heavily frowned upon by casinos. Mr Affleck was permitted to stay and play other games, the source claimed.

Card counters keep a tally of high and low value cards they have seen.This lets them take larger bets with less risk. Done properly, card counting will give players an advantage over the house. That said, someone please tell me, how do you get caught doing this? Isn't it all in your head!?

Either way, to my eyes, that sounds suspiciously like something badass Bruce Wayne would do... Are you excited for Affleck's upcoming Batfleck transformation in Zack Snyder's Batman vs. Superman? Hit me up in the comment section below!

Batman vs. Superman is set to arrive in theaters on May 6, 2016.
