WB Reportedly Planning for Ben Affleck's Exit From DCEU
Ben Affleck’s Batman may not be a part of the DCEU for much longer, as Warner Bros. is reportedly planning for the actor’s exit from the DC film franchise.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a knowledgable source told the outlet that Warner Bros. is working on a graceful way to transition Affleck’s Caped Crusader out of the DCEU. This change in course will reportedly begin to take form in one of the studio’s upcoming DC movies.
When Affleck’s alleged departure from the DCEU will occur has not yet been decided. Warner Bros. Pictures Group chief Toby Emmerich told THR the studio wants to keep Affleck in the role.”Ben is our Batman. We love him as Batman. We want to keep him in the cowl as long as we can,” he said.
