Ben Affleck Out. Batman to be recast (according to Screen Rant)
LINK

quote:

Matt Reeves is expected to recast Ben Affleck as the lead in his upcoming film, The Batman, according to the latest report. Affleck signed on for the role of the Caped Crusader back in 2013 for Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, an announcement that was met with a fair amount of vitriol from viewers. However, the Oscar-winner ultimately proved to be a strong fit for the part, winning a number of people over in his performances in both Dawn of Justice and this year’s Justice League.

Seems to make it more likely that they start from scratch.

Idk how you continue JL with a different batman, it would be so weird.

Too bad they already fricked that up by doing The Dark Knight Returns as the second film in the DCEU like a bunch of morons.

We need an "Affleck out" forum. I can't keep up with all of these threads.

Nevermind. The story is linking to the same Variety article that is in the Justice League shake-up thread.

Kick a Batman out when he's never had his own film to flesh out the character. Bad look.

Affleck had crap to work with, but his portrayal as Bruce/Batman is the closest to the animated series/ comics in live action history.

WB's biggest mistake is asking him to write direct and star in the solo movie. His mistake was accepting that challenge, initially.

Agreed. I think I was a bit lenient on Affleck given that he was passable and the rest of BvS was a fricking disaster on every level. Then in Justice League he needs help taking out a single Parademon? Black Widow and Hawkeye come off as way more badass in the Avengers than Batman does in JL. Clearly the weak link.

Battle for the Cowl, with a reworked Death in the Family as a 15 minute prologue. No Tim Drake to pull Batman back from the edge and Batfleck getting Omega beamed.

Maybe Al Franken can take over, he's got free time now. And it's just a Superhero movie so the bar is low.
