I really hope that this is just a fake rumour but it’s being said Ben Affleck wants out as the Batman.Ben Affleck announced earlier this month that he will no longer be directing the solo Batman film but that he is still on board to play the caped crusader in the standalone movie.
It has been said that Warner Bros are looking to recruit Matt Reeves to direct the solo Batman movie but we will have to wait and see for the studio to confirm this.As for the Ben Affleck wants out rumour, well a Now film journalist named John Campea claims to have heard from three people connected with the project that Ben Affleck is looking to quit. He said: “What has come out of the conversation with all three was this. They’re telling me that, Ben Affleck, make no mistake, he does want out,” Campea adds: “If they do not let him out of being Batman, [then] the stand alone Batman film that ultimately happens, will be the last time we see Affleck as Batman, because he apparently wants out.”Now we don’t really know if this is true but if you look back at previous years, for some reason the DCEU has been criticised a lot even though many fans enjoy the films which Warner Bros produce and as a DCEU fan myself I hope that this is just a rubbish rumour created by the media and that Batfleck continues to grow in the DCEU.
