"We've been working on this movie for so long, so hard -- that it gets a release and the fans get to see it is really, really exciting."

As for how his own kids -- 11-year-old Violet, 8-year-Seraphina and 5-year-old Samuel -- will see Justice League, Affleck surprisingly told ET that he's planning to take them to the movies just like any other moviegoer.

"They haven't seen it," Affleck revealed. "This movie has only been really finished properly in the last few weeks and I'm gonna set up a screening... it's not a screening. I'll just take them to the theater at some point when my life gets a little less busy."
