Ben Affleck No Longer To Play Batman
Ben Affleck’s debut in the DC Extended Universe was in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a film that turned into a huge film industry achievement that failed to associate with critics and audiences on the loose. Falling off the enormously effective series of Batman films from Chris Nolan, Affleck had a challenging situation to deal with, with the baffling reception of his debut cast doubt on his future in the franchise.
Shockingly, the actor’s second appearance in the franchise was another basic disappointment, with Justice League failing to make a noteworthy gouge in the cinema world. The actor was still appended to a solo Batman movie, but he gave over directorial obligations to Matt Reeves, leaving fans to guess if this implied he would never again appear in the movie.
Affleck took to online life to share a report about the upcoming film, which inferred he was abandoning the project completely, basically affirming that he wouldn’t star in the film, regardless of the studio not giving an official reaction on the issue.
Look down to see fan responses about Affleck withdrawing from The Batman!
NO EXCITEMENT ANYMORE
Ben Affleck’s portrayal of Batman is my favorite. He’s the reason why I wanted to see another solo, I didn’t want to watch yet another Batman film but he was so great in the role that I wanted to see him on screen again. Now he’s gone, and what excitement I had left is gone too

Ben Affleck’s Batman in BvS is my favorite on screen Batman and it’s a shame that we will never see that portrayal in a well put together film

Say what you will about the DC movies but Ben Affleck was a terrific Batman/Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill was a superb Superman/Clark Kent. Losing them both from the DCEU is truly disappointing. pic.twitter.com/qxzJZhcO7V
