Jennifer Garner has no problem with Ben Affleck as Batman! The actress opened up to Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan on Thursday, Oct. 2, about her husband's buff physique as he continues to film Zack Snyder's Batman.

"Have you seen him in costume?" Strahan asked. The studio shared a photo this past May of Gotham City's caped crusader in his Batsuit — defined muscles, chiseled abs, and all.

"Yeah, lots!" Garner, 42, responded, adding that getting the Batsuit off requires an entire team. "If we we're in the heat of passion, I would be like, 'Um, let me get a chainsaw.'"

"Does he look just as ripped underneath the costume?" Ripa, 44, inquired.

"You know, he has put on 30 pounds of muscle and he's eight percent body fat," Garner said of her husband's body. "He looks pretty good. It's a little bit like, 'Whoa! Who are you?' It feels like I'm having an affair. But I don't mind, I'm not complaining! It's fine." (Theatergoers will have the opportunity to see Affleck's ahem, full frontal ripped body in Gone Girl, which opened Friday, Oct. 3.)

While Garner's enjoying the benefits of her husband's heroic role, Affleck told Jimmy Fallon this past week that his kids could care less. "Despite the fact that I'm playing Batman now, people would say, 'Are your kids into it?' The truth is, [they're] not," Affleck said of his three kids, Violet, 8, Seraphina, 5, and Samuel, 2. "If I was doing the sequel to Frozen I would be a hero. My two older daughters could give a sh-t about Batman and they've now passed that affection onto my son. He's always like, 'Papa, can I watch Frozen?' And I'm like, 'No, dude, it's not on again!"
