What is Ben Affleck’s future in the DC Extended Universe? Despite is fantastic take on the Caped Crusaders in the films, he’s slowly been making his way towards the exit. It doesn’t sound like he’s any more sure of things now than he was before.
When asked by extratv whether or not he’d be playing Batman for a total of five films (with Justice League being his third outing), Affleck responded with:
“I don’t know about that. We’ll see what the future holds.”
Right now, we know that War for the Planet of the Apes director is hard at work on developing a standalone Batman film, and while we’d assume it would star Affleck, his recent cageyness made made it all one big question mark. Of course, it hasn’t helped that he initially was on board to direct a Batman film, but has since pulled out as both writer and director of the project. It seems like only a matter of time before he hops out of the role completely.
Will Justice League be his last outing as Batman? For some reason, we expect his involvement may end up hinging quite a bit on whether or not Justice League is viewed as a success.
