This past summer it was reported that Ben Affleck’s days as Batman were numbered. Affleck tried to downplay it at Comic-Con by telling everyone how much he loves being Batman, but now it seems like he’s changed his tune.
With Justice League, Affleck will be playing Batman for a third time, and Extra asked if he’ll play the role at least two more times for a total of five appearances as the Dark Knight. “I don’t know about that,” Affleck said unenthusiastically. “We’ll see what the future holds.”
You can watch his reply in the video below at the 38 second mark.
I love Ben Affleck as Batman, but I’ll be going into Justice League treating it like it’s the last time I’ll see him in the role. At this point, I just don’t think it’s likely that he’ll star in Matt Reeves’ Batman trilogy.
What do you make of Affleck’s comments? Do you think we’ll see him as Batman again? Let me know in the comments section below.
