Ben Affleck parting ways with The Batman, says brother Casey

Ben Affleck parting ways with The Batman, says brother Casey

All in all, it's quite clear that Batman will have to learn how to cooperate with other superheroes, and here's how Affleck explains this: "He's put in this position of having to reach out, find other people, convincing them to do something. It's not a bad theme to have!" It's produced by Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns with Jim Rowe, Wesley Coller, Curt Kanemoto, Chris Terrio and Ben Affleck executive producing.

Affleck further said that "Justice League" is extremely different from the tenor of the 2016 film "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

Sad Batfleck? Whether Ben Affleck will return in The Batman has been the source of much speculation. However, while we're all certain that Cavill is set to reprise his role as Superman, we're not sure how much of the hero we'll get to see in Justice League.

It's worth remembering that Casey Affleck's comments about his brother's future in the solo Batman movie were never meant to be taken as gospel. No, I thought he was great. So while we shouldn't believe what he has to say, there is evidence that suggests there may be some truth to it. Rumors of Ben wanting out started this year. He was great. He's a hero, so he had something to channel and work with there. Sorry to say. Is that breaking news? I know there's this misconception that because I'm not directing it, that maybe I wasn't enthusiastic about it.

Deadpool 2's Domino, Zazie Beetz, mourns tragic death of stunt double
On Monday, the " Deadpool 2′ cast and crew lost one of their crew members, Joi "SJ" Harris , an African American female stunt driver".

Warner Bros has not commented on the reports. Cutting him this early in the DCEU, would be a mistake.

This is as good an indicator as we have as to Affleck's convictions to the role of Batman. You could genetically engineer an actor to have the best elements of Christian Bale, Kevin Conroy, Michael Keaton and Adam West and even that... thing would struggle with the material in BvS and Suicide Squad. But Casey's remarks don't instill a whole lot of confidence. A representative insists the Justice League star will "continue to be Batman as long as the studio will have him".
