BEN AFFLECK TO NOT RETURN AS BATMAN?
Manchester By The Sea actor Casey Affleck might have given birth to the biggest confusion of 2017! The actor appeared on a Boston radio-show Dale and Holley with Keefe and casually dropped a bomb by saying that his brother Ben Affleck won’t be returning as Batman. Yes! We are just as shocked as you are.
Cassey said, “I thought he was an OK Batman.” He then went on to add, “No, he was great. He was great. He’s a hero, so he had something to channel and work with there. But he’s not going to do that movie [The Batman], I don’t think. Sorry to say.”
When the interviewers were blown away by this news, Cassey tried to cover up by saying, “Is that breaking news? Because I was just kind of making that up, I don’t know.”
Ben Affleck starred as Batman in the 2016 blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and while attending the Comic Con for his upcoming film Justice League he had said, “Let me be very clear. I am the luckiest guy in the world. Batman is the coolest part in any universe, DC or Marvel”. On the other hand, in July, The Hollywood Reporter claimed that Warner Bros. was planning to usher out Affleck from Batman, but neither gave any confirmation about the same.
All we hope for is that this cloud of confusion is cleared asap because this uncertainty isn’t really going down well with us!
