Ben Affleck confirms he's not leaving The Batman despite recent reports

Posted July 23, 2017

Batman is the coolest f-king part in any universe it's just incredible. Affleck and Cavill return as Batman and the Man of Steel, Gadot makes her third appearance as Wonder Woman, while Miller's The Flash and Momoa's Aquaman are fully introduced as part of the League ahead of their solo films arriving in 2018.

THR's report also suggested that Warner Bros. was looking for a way to transition from the Affleck Batman to another Batman. While director Matt Reeves, who is coming off a very successful press tour following War for the Planet of the Apes, is clearly excited to get his chances to tell a Batman story, there have been concerns that Affleck would step down because of issues in his personal life. So for now The Batman is on track to keep moving forward and Ben Affleck will suit up as The Dark Knight yet again.

"Let me be clear", said Affleck. I am so thrilled to do it.

Ben Affleck revealed in a profanity-laced speech at Comic-Con on Saturday that he will continue as Batman in the upcoming "The Batman" film. "Matt Reeves doing it..."

He added that he "would be an ape on the ground for Matt Reeves", who has taken over directing duties for The Batman and reportedly plans a trilogy with the Gotham City crime fighter.

"The Batman" is still in early stages and has no scheduled release date.

Throughout the event, Affleck looked happy and relaxed - laughing off rumors that he was being "phased out" as the Caped Crusader and even dropping a few f-bombs.

Neither Snyder nor Whedon were at Comic-Con, although Snyder tweeted Friday that he was sending his best to the "Justice League" team.
