It was an interesting week for Batman at the blackjack table.
Ben Affleck, who is beginning filming as the Caped Crusader in Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” sequel, was reportedly caught counting cards on Tuesday at The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
However, despite reports that the actor was banned from the property, in a statement to Access Hollywood on Monday, a spokesperson for the Hard Rock said, “Mr. Affleck, a valued guest of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, is not banned from our property and is welcome back any time.”
As for reports he has been barred from any future games of blackjack at the casino, the spokesperson declined to comment.
“It is the policy of the hotel to not comment on casino guests specific gaming play,” the spokesperson said in a statement.
