Now that Ben Affleck has completed rehab, he has finally joined his Justice League cast members on the red carpet on Wednesday at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. Standing center stage for the photo op, Ben was flanked by co-stars Jason Momoa, Henry Cavill, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, and director Zack Snyder.
Ben Affleck seemed to be “in good spirits” while posing with the Justice League cast. The rehab graduate was the most dressed up out of the group, wearing a blue suit and tie while the rest of the group donned jeans, t-shirts, and even a leather vest.
The latest Ben Affleck sighting came right on the heels of his latest rehab stint. After successfully completing his rehab stay, Affleck confessed his struggles with alcohol in a raw Facebook post.
“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront, I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step.”
What caused the rehabilitation
Ben Affleck’s rehab stint in 2017 wasn’t the first time he sought help for his addiction to alcohol. The Justice League star also spent time getting help in rehab back in 2001. In his recent Facebook post, Ben Affleck thanked his estranged wife, Jennifer Garner, for sticking by him through his struggles.
“I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”
While it has been noted that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are not back together, they certainly have been looking pretty cozy lately. Just days before his red carpet appearance with Justice League stars, Ben Affleck was spotted leaving a church in Brentwood, California. They were described as looking “happy” and “in good spirits” when Ben and Jen were spotted together, fueling speculation that there might actually be hope for a reconciliation.
Director Snyder told the CinemaCon audience that making the film was “a culmination of a journey that, for me, has been seven years. I’m a huge fan of these characters and this was a dream come true to bring them all together in this single film.”
Justice League will be released on November 17.
