Ben Affleck might be Batman, but he is also just like any other loving dad.
The current incarnation of the caped crusader was filming [Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870) in Detroit with his wife Jennifer Garner and 2-year-old son, Samuel, when he stumbled across a kids' birthday party.
Instead of keeping a wide berth to avoid being swamped by tiny fans at the superhero themed birthday party, Affleck asked if his young son could join in with the action and play with other kids his age.
No stories have emerged from the other parents and children present just yet, but I can only imagine how psyched the older kids were to have real-life Batman on the scene!
It's always so refreshing to hear stories like this where mega stars are just so down to earth. It would have been so much easier for the Affleck family to avoid public spaces, but instead they realized - as parents - how important it is for their son to have fun with other kids.
Ben Affleck has given this lucky kid a birthday that will never be forgotten!
