Ben Affleck Shoots Down Rumors of DCEU Exit: ‘Batman Is the Coolest F—ing Part in Any Universe’
Just one day before he was scheduled to appear at Comic-Con, a new report revealed that Ben Affleck’s days as Batman are seemingly numbered, with sources close to the situation suggesting that this fall’s Justice League may very well be the actor’s final appearance in the DCEU.

Even those who believe that Warner Bros. has charted a new direction for itself with the addition of Joss Whedon and the success of Wonder Woman would admit that the studio has its work cut out for it.
