Ben Affleck Denies Reports He's Leaving Batman

"Matt Reeves doing it, I would be a fucking ape on the ground for Matt Reeves let alone Batman".

The Batman v Superman star, dressed casually in a t-shirt, jeans and a blue bomber jacket, was joined by Justice League costars: Wonder Woman Gal Gadot, Superman Henry Cavill, The Flash Ezra Miller, Aquaman Jason Momoa and Cyborg Ray Fisher.

"Batman is the coolest fucking part in any universe". Addressing recent rumors and reports that the character would be recast sooner rather than later - possibly even before The Batman, now under director Matt Reeves, would shoot - Affleck had some colorful words for the crowd in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con.

The film, titled The Batman, doesn't have a release date yet, but Reeves is already seeing the big picture.

Matt Reeves is now in the process of gathering a writing team - rumored to include his Apes collaborator, to start The Batman from scratch, but it appears Affleck will be along for the ride. "And I think you'll see why I'm so excited to be Batman". "You know, you have to start with a story that begins something".

Destiny 2 Beta is Coming, Here's Everything You Need To Know
The playable PvE content in the Destiny 2 beta is nearly exactly the same as what we say back in May, but with a single exception. Beyond modes, Bungie has offered more information on the subclasses, weapons, and armour that will be available during the beta .

Ben Affleck joined other members of the Justice League cast on stage during the Warner Bros. panel and moderator Chris Hardwick (possibly looking to nip some mast Q&A questions in the bud) brought it up.

Exactly when and how that might happen has yet to be determined, but it would be wise to bet against Affleck starring in The Batman.

He said that after two appearances as Batman in Warner's D.C. Extended Universe, studio bosses Kevin Tsujihara, Sue Kroll and Toby Emmerich had made it clear the part would remain his.

Affleck will don the cape and cowl in Zack Snyder's "Justice League", which opens in November.
