According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ben Affleck is about to leave Batman. Earlier it was reported that Henry Cavill is exiting the role of Superman after entering it years ago in Man of Steel.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. parted ways with the actor. And now, Ben Affleck is also set to retire.
According to reports, Affleck ‘isn’t expected to reprise his role for director Matt Reeves’ forthcoming Batman stand-alone film.”
But, Warner Bros. has not made any official announcement about Cavill and Affleck’s exit.
Forbes writer Mark Hughes was asked by a fan about Affleck’s part in The Batman on Twitter.
“He’s not Batman in this movie. As of now, there are no plans to involve Affleck, and the situation behind the scenes is that he’s been arranging his exit from the DCEU for months. I know fans hate to hear this, but it’s time to prepare yourselves for Batman without Affleck.”
“I can’t ‘officially’ declare anything since I’m not at WB. But we’ve all known this was coming and have been saying it for months, it’s not really new. I ran an article on it a couple of months ago.” the writer added.
It’s believed that Warners now wants to work on new projects such as a Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story featuring the teen cousin of Superman.
