If only we could all be as honest in our own lives as Vin Diesel was in this interview about Riddick, when asked for his opinion on Ben Affleck being cast as Batman. What a dream. “Hey Kelly, what do you think about the news that Kim Gordon will appear on the next season of Girls?” “I don’t give a fuck about Kim Gordon appearing on the next season of Girls.” “Hey Kelly, what do you think about the new lines that connect conversations on Twitter?” “I don’t want to talk about Twitter and also don’t give a fuck.” “Hey Kelly, what do you think about, I don’t know, something else?” “I don’t give a fuuuuuuccckkk.” From Clever Movies, via Film Drunk:

Erin White: I wanna know, Vin…what you think about all the haters who are hating on a Ben Affleck Batman movie?

Vin Diesel: (groan)

Erin White: Do you like that choice? For Batman?

Vin Diesel: I don’t give a fuck about Batman. Or who plays Batman.

Hahaha. I like very much that he, first of all, does not care about Batman AT ALL. Full stop. And then only second of all he does not care about the recent casting news. Like, do NOT even try to talk to Vin Diesel about Batman: The Animated Series, because he just does not care about any of it. He isn’t a child. Why are you asking him children’s questions? NEXT. (Video of the interview after the jump.)

Very good answer, sincerely. Love you, Vin.

  1. Kelly you need to use the proper delivery system for Vin Diesel news

  2. Next time I see Vin and our conversation turns toward Batman, I’m going make a bunch of comments that TOTALLY go against established continuity (like that Bruce’s parents were killed in a fire or that Alfred is Australian) until he finally breaks down and corrects me and THEN we’ll see who doesn’t give a fig about Batman, won’t we?

  3. I think the SAME thing about Riddick!

  4. yeah sure, there’s somebody out there not interested in batman: the animated, right

    i guess that’s why they call him an actor

  5. Yo Vin, I’m pretty sure Batman was on the Simpsons so by law you are required to give a fuck about him.

  6. That was his edited response. His full response was:

    Vin Diesel: “I don’t give a fuck about Batman. Or who plays Batman. But don’t get me started on that godawful Fifty Shades Of Gray casting…”

  7. “Hi Vin. Do you consider yourself a feminist?”

  8. Somehow, over the years, Vin Diesel has gone from being someone I did not like to someone I enjoy immensely. What a roller coaster it’s been!

  9. “I don’t give a fuck about Batman. Not since Crisis on Infinite Earths when they erased all of the Golden Age whimsy from his backstory. Then along comes Frank Miller, and suddenly it’s all grim and gritty and what happened to just being the Caped Crusader, you know?”

  10. When I forced Artdork at gunpoint to see 1D3D this weekend, there were 100 (aka 2) little girls in line for snacks with us, and we joked that they were all going to see Riddick and NOT 1D3D. But then they weren’t in our theater. What were those little girls seeing? RIDDICK FOR REAL????

  11. The woman actor who was interviewed after Vin seemed intimidated, like maybe she thought Batman would do something to her if she expressed displeasure at the new Batman?

  12. Gotta say I totally agree. I used to be a comic nerd, loved the comic movies, and I still liked the Iron Man flicks, but… yeah, I don’t care who plays Batman.

    Or Superman.

    Or the Great Gatsby.
