Jennifer Garner keeps a straight face at the Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto, September 7, 2013.Mark Blinch/Reuters

Jennifer Garner may have been at the Toronto Film Festival to discuss her new movie Dallas Buyers Club, but she couldn't escape questions about husband Ben Affleck's new role as Batman.

The casting choice sparked an online backlash when it was announced last month.

"Believe me, you can't expect anything else," Garner said of the fuss. "He's a grown-up ... that is just what you're getting into. But he's going to be fantastic."

She says she had to keep the Batman role secret for "months and months."

Dallas Buyers Club features Matthew McConaughey as real-life Texas electrician Ron Woodroof, who fought to smuggle HIV/AIDS drugs from Mexico in the 1980s. Garner plays a doctor who tries to help him.
