Ben Affleck’s Batman is highly regarded – some even say the best live action version to date.
What some might not know, however, is that the character may have had a different look in the film.

Recent rumors suggested that Ben Affleck could be out as Batman, but the actor quickly shut them down at last week’s San Diego Comic Con:
“Let me be clear,” said Affleck. “Batman is the greatest f–king part in the world. I am thrilled to do it.”
He gave a little more in depth answer after the panel:
“Trying to do that, and direct, would probably be too much. Something would be compromised. I think it came off, optically, to the broader world, like lack of interest or enthusiasm. When in fact I love this character. I think getting Matt Reeves to come in and do it is really, really exciting. Matt hasn’t really unveiled his full vision yet. He wanted to wait until Apes came out, and he was obviously consumed with that. So I’m looking forward to hearing what his story is.”
“Warners has been working on it, making sure we’re getting it right. That’s the partnership you definitely want. With Wonder Woman, they really hit a home run. With [Justice League], I think we’ve found the tone, and found the flavor of it. I’d love to do it as long as they’ll have me. Eventually it’ll be somebody else, and I’m sure they’ll get somebody great. But while I’m doing it, I’m going to do the best job I can, and really appreciate how lucky I am.”
We’ll see the character next when Justice League hits theaters this November.
