There have been countless rumors that Ben Affleck may not play Batman much longer, but they’ve always been denied by the actor or someone at Warner Bros. During recent promotion for Justice League, Affleck was asked whether or not we can expect the him to play Batman five times, he didn’t offer a very promising response:
“I don’t know about that. We’ll see what the future holds.”
His brother Casey Affleck caused an uproar when he said that Ben wouldn’t be in The Batman, to which Ben Affleck had to release a statement clarifying that he’d be interested in playing the character as long as he could.
“In Batman v Superman, he was at the end of his rope. But in Justice League, he’s finding hope again. He has to open up and play well with others. He knows he needs them.”
Affleck said that director Zack Snyder listened to the backlash, but had always set out to make a movie that was more fun:
“Zack wanted to make a movie that was more fun, that was a little bit light, that wasn’t so encumbered with heavy melodrama.”
The film’s synopsis: Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League hits theaters on November 17th.
