Ben Affleck's Batman Might Be Ushered Out of DC Franchise

Ben Affleck's Batman Might Be Ushered Out of DC Franchise

Ben Affleck might not be your Batman for that much longer, if the new report from THR is true.

The Hollywood trade is reporting that we likely will not see Ben star in the upcoming standalone superhero movie The Batman.

Ben was set to star in the film, as well as write and direct it. After dropping out as the director, Matt Reeves was hired and he decided to also drop Ben‘s script.

While Ben will star as the caped crusader in the upcoming Justice League movie, “the studio is working on plans to usher out Affleck’s Batman — gracefully, addressing the change in some shape or form in one of the upcoming DC films,” THR reports.

DO YOU THINK someone else should play Batman in the future?

    Ben, I thought, was actually a pretty decent Batman. Especially for where Bruce Wayne is in his life during this time period of the movies. He played it well. I think it will be kind of confusing having two different actors play Batman when the movies come out seemingly around the same time.

    I hope this is true! He was awful as Batman, I didn’t like it at all. Anyway, I don’t think this is true

    Sorry, but I’m glad about this news, if it is true. I never thought Affleck made a very good Batman. With Val Kilmer and George Clooney he’s among the worst Batman portrayers, IMO. They should find somebody fresh-faced who will really fit the role, like they did for Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot was a great find and fit the role perfectly.
