Ben Affleck done being Batman?
So after many problems with Warner Bros and the DC movies, it looks like they have more problems on the way……
About a month ago, Ben Affleck announced that he wasn’t going to be directing ‘The Batman’ anymore and that was really really disheartening to hear. And now it looks like things are getting even worse as John Campea, who works with Collider, has said that three separate sources have all told him about Ben wanting out.
He has said that “I’ve been told, Ben Affleck is talking with Warner Bros. in an attempt to get out of being Batman. And if they do not let him out of being Batman, the standalone Batman film that ultimately happens will be the last time we see Ben Affleck as Batman.”
This all does really suck as Ben Affleck is my personal favorite Batman yet and seeing him not want to play this character anymore is really sad. I hope Ben at least stays on for ‘The Batman’ but if he leaves the movie, Warner Bros will either have to just get rid of arguably their biggest money making character or maybe just do a hard reset of the DC movies in a few years.
