'Justice League': Ben Affleck Explains Why He Decided To Play Batman

'Justice League': Ben Affleck Explains Why He Decided To Play Batman

The actor is already looking for ways to hang up Batman's cape, just months after he told the San Diego ComicCon audience that he wasn't going anywhere. The Zack Snyder directorial is full of talented cast members like Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Henry Cavill who will take on some of the greatest superheroes the comic world has seen. Batman, played by Affleck, is the crime fighting alter-ego of billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne.

While giving an interview to a leading U.S. publication, Affleck noted, "The new Batman movie being developed by Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes) is something I'm contemplating".

It's hard to celebrate the arrival of Justice League, DC Comics and Warner Bros.' answer to Marvel's Avengers, when the future of the franchise is uncertain.

Affleck has now portrayed the Caped Crusader in three movies, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and of course, Justice League. Batman isn't a side hero who can disappear from time-to-time.

Channel24's trip to London was sponsored by Warner Bros.

Major storm hitting West Coast with heavy rain, strong winds
The "Atmospheric River" that's barreling toward Northern California will bring heavy snow to the Sierra Nevada. Valley locations will start as rain with higher elevations beginning to see accumulating snow.

The latest version of this story comes from USA Today, where Affleck himself floated the idea that he might not play Batman anymore. Again, without Affleck on screen for another role, it would have to occur offscreen. There would be a funeral for Bruce Wayne and the public would mourn their favorite bat's death.

With the release of Justice League just a few days away, Ben Affleck doesn't know if he will continue as Batman in the DC Extended Universe.

One thing seems clear, though; Affleck is done with Batman. "Can you get it?' And I said, 'Ya know, I have some connections.' And then he told me who he wanted to be".

In related news, Justice League tickets are actually out pacing that of Wonder Woman, and Rotten Tomatoes is planning on a big reveal event for the Justice League Rotten Tomatoes score, so more than likely its rating looks promising. The final swing of the pendulum is coming to the DC Universe.
