Kevin Smith is either going to get a bunch of CREDIT, or a bunch of BLAME for Ben Affleck's performance in the next Batman movie -- because the director claims he helped Ben train for the role. "I'm not saying I made Ben Affleck who he is today," Smith told TMZ, "but I made 'Mallrats' with him, 'Chasing Amy', [and] 'Dogma.' So in some weird way, now that he's becoming Batman, I trained Batman."
