-- Like most people would be, Ben Affleck was pretty impressed with his batsuit.
However, even he couldn't convince the powers that be to let him keep it.
"I asked them, 'So, how about maybe taking the suit home at the end of this thing?'" the "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" star said during a visit to "Live with Kelly and Michael." "They were like, 'For $100,000 we could!'"
Affleck, 42, explained that "a lot goes into it," which is why it's such a pricey item. In fact, because every element of the film is meant to be perfect, the actor explained that it's forced him to hit the gym a little more often than usual.
"Audiences have an increasing expectation," he said. "You see guys like Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans and all these guys whose bodies are just like, you think, 'How is that even possible?!' So, exercising is as much of the job now in some ways as the rest of it."
