Vin Diesel has denied reports that he was disappointed at not being cast as Batman in the 2015 Batman V's Superman film.

In an interview with Clevver Movies, the 46-year-old said: "I don't give a **** about Batman. Or who plays Batman."

Responding to the criticism of Ben Affleck being cast in the role, he said: "Let him live is my motto… let him live. Let Warner Bros. hire whoever they want, let Ben do whatever he wants.

"He got an Oscar, give him some credit. Leave him alone."

When asked to pick a fan question from a jar, the Riddick star picked one and read out: "Do you think you would make a good Batman?", before revealing it was a joke!

"Sorry guys, this was just too fun."
