Metro Boomin Trusts Batman Over Superman, According to Ben Affleck
The highly anticipated superhero mashup movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is flying into theaters this month, which means stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill are doing press. Sitting down with Global Grind, Ben Affleck got down to the tough questions of superhero life. Watch the clip above.
"I think Young Metro definitely has to reach out and trust Batman," Affleck said when asked who he thinks Metro Boomin trusts more out of the two caped crusaders. "Don’t you think? Batman is a little bit more like a man of the people. Superman is a little aloof, distant, far away. You can't trust that." And we all know what happens if Metro don't trust you.
The 22-year-old DJ himself confirmed Affleck's theory, tweeting out that Batman has always been his favorite hero.
The social phenom of Young Metro's trust was started back in February when Future was sampled on Kanye West's "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1" saying, "If Young Metro don't trust you, I'm gon shoot you." Since then, the adlib has caught fire with hip-hop fans hilariously meme-ing what would happen if Metro doesn't trust them or their foes. Metro himself broke down the origin of the phrase in a recent radio interview.
“We had did this song with Uncle Murda ["Right Now"] one time, and one of the lines that Future said in there was, ‘If young Metro don’t trust you, I’m gon’ shoot you.’ When he said that, it had a different tone, but I remember when we were in the studio he had another tone, which is the one that’s the tag that was just like muted. I just made sure to go back on the session and just get it and just go HAM with it.”
In the case of Batman, the nocturnal savior is thankfully on Metro's good side. But could that change after he sees the movie? Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters Friday, March 25.
