Ben, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Adams, and the film's director, Zack Snyder, were on the panel. Ben didn't speak about his split, focusing on the film he was there to promote.

"...[I]f I was his wife, I think I would be very suspicious, always, of whoever just called because he has a real gift at being able to insinuate a conversation."
