Ben Affleck Will Not Reprise His ‘Batman’ Role In 2021 | Film News


June 25 2021 will be the day we see a brand new Batman. Yes, that’s right. Ben Affleck is hanging up the cloak and mask in order to pave the way for a new actor to take on the exciting vigilante role.

“The two-time Oscar winner is also starring in the Warner Bros.’ Gavin O’Connor drama Torrance. Affleck worked hard on The Batman story, but knew he wasn’t the right one for this particular version. A search is underway for a new Dark Knight”.


On Twitter, Affleck posted this:
