As previously reported Ben Affleck spoke in front of the U.S. Senate on the importance of diplomacy for the Republic of the Congo and during his opening Affleck addressed U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy as his co-star.
Well today Affleck went on to twitter to thank the Senator for giving him the opportunity to speak on his cause and while he thanked him, Affleck also called Leahy the second biggest Batman fan at the hearing that day, Affleck basically stating he was the first biggest:
Thanks @SenatorLeahy – the 2nd biggest Batman fan at the #Senate hearing – for the opp to speak about @EasternCongo. http://t.co/zHwZBIPP8t

We responded to Affleck’s comment with a tongue-in-cheek responds:
@BenAffleck @SenatorLeahy @EasternCongo who’s the first biggest? — DCComicsMovie.com (@DCComicsMovie) April 8, 2015
Leahy who’s a familiar face when it comes to Batman, as he appeared in both The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises as a cameo and will also be making another cameo for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice next year, replied to our question by adding a few changes to it and stating what Affleck said about being the first biggest Batman fan as being debatable.
Now THAT may be debatable… ;)”@DCComicsMovie: @BenAffleck @SenatorLeahy @EasternCongo who’s the first biggest #Batman fan?”
