Actor Ben Affleck's involvement in the future of the DC Extended Universe may be in doubt again, but even if he leaves the role, he's got a few souvenirs of his time as Batman, as he has now admitted to taking an unspecified number of Batarangs from the set of Justice League.

During his recent appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Affleck explained that the prop department would call him about missing items. Although bigger toys like the Batmobile were well-protected, Affleck stated that he did, in fact, take home some Batarangs. "You can't exactly have been stealing it if you got billed for it, which is what happened to me at the end of this story," Affleck continued. "Turns out, Batarangs aren't cheap."

Colbert then asked Affleck whether the Batarangs actually worked, to which he answered, "It'll hit guys."
