New York City, NY, United States (4E) – Despite announcing last year that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are ending their ten-year marriage, the actor has nothing but high remarks about his estranged wife even calling her a superhero mom.

Affleck was interviewed at the red carpet of the premiere of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” in New York City and he talked about his former wife noting that she has admirable skills of her own likened to being a superhero.

The father of three shared, "You know, I just marvel at my mother who did a great job of raising my brother and I. Parenting is hard work but it's so rewarding and I certainly do my best. Jen is a superhero mom. She is an amazing mother and I'm really lucky to have her as a partner to co-parent these kids with. We try our best, we put them first and that's what we do."

Garner and Affleck share three children together named Samuel, Violet, and Seraphina . The two have always made it a point that despite heading for divorce, they will still be taking care of their children together and will be spending time as a family during special events.

More on being a father, Affleck was asked if his four-year-old son Samuel will see his dad as Batman. He shared that he can see some of it but it still depends. The actor pointed out that he is not sure if his son will be scared seeing him in the movie and if he would think that if it was really his father getting thrown around and getting hurt.

He continued, “I don't know if he could know the difference. So, we'll see. I'll warm him up. In time. When he learns to differentiate between the fact that it's not, that I'm not really getting beat up on camera. It's pretend, you know.” The actor also recently revealed that her two girls are more of the Wonder Woman fans rather than his character.
