Daddy's No. 1 fan! Ben Affleck's 18-month-old son Samuel showed his support for his old man's latest role as Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel wordlessly, with a bold fashion statement, on Sunday, Sept. 15. The tiny tot strolled through a farmer's market in Los Angeles with mom Jennifer Garner wearing a blue Batman T-shirt, comfy navy sweatpants and grey-and-green sneakers.

The youngest of the Affleck clan looked carefree and unhurried as he carried around a baggie of snacks while Garner, 41, kept a close eye on his tottering steps. Older sister Violet, 7, was also on-hand for the afternoon outing.

Samuel is only the latest of the Affleck brood to make a statement of support about the Runner, Runner star's new role -- earlier this month, Garner told MTV News that she's "excited" for his new project.

"You know, I was excited for him," the Dallas Buyers Club actress told the outlet during the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 8. "I was excited because he had a real take on what he wanted to do."

"I have to say, my husband is a pretty great storyteller himself, and I'm excited to watch him do it," she added.

When casting news originally announced that Affleck, 41, would take on the challenge of playing the legendary superhero, Twitter erupted in outrage, with fans joking about a number of actors they'd rather see in the role than Affleck. 

Among the mentioned contenders: Whoopi Goldberg, Ellen DeGeneres, Joan Rivers, Morgan Freeman, and Jennifer Garner.
