London: Actor Ben Affleck once built a replica Batcave entrance in his house, director Kevin Smith has revealed.

`Red State` director Smith, who has worked with Affleck on six feature films, discovered the extent of the new Batman star`s love for the character when he purchased his old home, reported Digital Spy.

"His house that I would end up buying, when I first saw it he was touring me through the place and said, `Come here, I gotta show you my room`.

"He brings me into the room and goes, `Look at this`. There`s an office room and this beautiful bookcase - he reached under and he clicked something and all of a sudden the bookcase opened. I was like, `No! You built a Batcave?. And he was like, `No I built a Batcave entrance!` When you went in behind the bookcase it was a panic room," he said.

Smith, who penned the Batman: Cacophony and Widening Gyre books for DC Comics, added that Affleck in the role of Batman "makes absolute sense".

"This dude has loved Batman going as far back as I can remember. He only did Daredevil because he loved Frank Miller`s Dark Knight Returns," Smith explained.

"He`s like, `They`re never going to make another Batman`, because this was after Batman had nipples. So he was like, `Daredevil`s cool, and Miller wrote him as well`. So he liked the character, but it was always rooted in Batman. He`s always been into the notion. He`ll honour the character. I honestly think the dude`s a great actor, it makes absolute sense," he added.
Zack Snyder`s and Henry Cavill`s `Man of Steel` sequel, rumoured to be titled `Superman vs Batman` will star Affleck as the new caped crusader and will open in 2015.
