Ben Affleck Addresses Rumors He's Leaving Batman Role

Ben Affleck Addresses Rumors He's Leaving Batman Role

One big question that Ben Affleck was clearly going to face at the Justice League panel during 2017 Comic-Con was about the rumors he’s leaving the role of Batman.

Earlier this week, a report surfaced that Warner Bros. is setting the stage for a new actor to play the caped crusader.

“Let me be very clear,” Ben said on the panel (via THR). “I am the luckiest guy in the world. Batman is the coolest part in the universe. I’m so thrilled to do it. It’s f–king amazing.”

Ben also addressed the upcoming The Batman standalone movie being developed by War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves. Ben was originally slated to write and direct the film, but dropped out of those roles.

“I would be an ape on the ground for Matt Reeves!” he said.

    Well, he didn’t deny it, so there’s a chance (hope) that WB is actually done with Batffleck. I think they should Do one more with him and add Dick Greyson (have Ethan Peck play him) Batman dies and Greyson joins JL. Fans want a new story but from the comic universe and that doesn’t sound so bad. Also, Ben looks like he’s done with the superhero thing. Yes, he enjoys it but when he’s doing other projects all people care about is Batman and you can see it bothers him.

    that’s not him addressing anything. its a total non-answer, which becomes an answer in of itself. if it wasn’t true, it would be denied, not danced around, unless they’re using it as a planted rumour to drum up free press which is always a possibility. but saying being Batman is amazing is not the same as saying he’s not leaving the role

    I hope they get rid of Affleck. He brings nothing to the character, by far the worst Batman they’ve ever had!!!
