Warner Bros. Eyeing to Replace Ben Affleck as Batman

Matt Reeves will be replacing Ben Affleck as director of THE BATMAN, and recently he revealed that he will not be using Affleck and Geoff Johns’ script and instead start all over again. Meanwhile, it seems that Warner Bros. Pictures is eyeing to replace Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the upcoming DC Extended Universe movie.

Affleck will reprise his role in the upcoming Justice League, which marks his third time after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. It seems that either the studio or the actor (or maybe both) are not too happy how the DC movies are shaping up. It might also be that Affleck is getting much older than any of of his fellow Justice League costars. Zack Snyder chose Affleck because he envisioned a much older, battle-hardened Batman who’d been beating up criminals in Gotham City for years by the time we catch up to him. Snyder has now exited the DC Universe and Joss Whedon has taken over with the reshoots before moving on to filming his own Batgirl project within a year or two. The Batman is also being eyed as the first in a potential trilogy, so if Affleck is getting cold feet, it’s best if he steps out before the first one starts to shoot.

Studio Chief Toby Emmerich revealed that Affleck is still all-in.

“Ben is our Batman. We love him as Batman. We want to keep him in the cowl as long as we can.”

In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, Amber Heard, Kiersey Clemons, J.K Simmons, Ciarán Hinds and Amy Adams.

Justice League hits theaters on November 10.
