Ben Affleck is all set to return as Batman on the silver screen for the third time in ‘Justice League” when the movie releases this November and fans can expect to see a traditional Batman in the film. The Academy Award winning actor has said that “Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice” saw the Caped Crusader deviating from his traditional mold but the upcoming “Justice League” will see a much more traditional Batman.

Upcoming movie to see Batman working with fellow superheroes

Ben Affleck has said that “Justice League” has got a very different tenor in comparison to “Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice.” It sees Batman in a position where he has to reach out to others, search them and convince them to do things that serve the interest of humanity.

It is a challenge for the Caped Crusader, and a big part of the movie is whether Batman will succeed in mobilizing the superheroes to do what he wants them to do.

As fans know, “Justice League” sees Batman reuniting with Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg, Aquaman, and others. It has a larger role for him in comparison to his past outings, but he has to learn to work within a team. Ben Affleck has said that the film will have a traditional Batman who does things in his own way but he is always committed to saving and helping people. It will be more of a classical incarnation in keeping with the comic book portrayal.

Casey Affleck hints at Ben hanging his Batman cape

For quite some time, rumors about Ben Affleck saying goodbye to the role of Batman have been rife, and now Casey Affleck has said that his brother is not going to do the solo Batman movie to be directed by Matt Reeves.

The junior Affleck said this while speaking to WEEI Sports Radio Network but then he also backtracked from his words joking that he had made it up. Nevertheless, the genuineness with which he talked about Ben not playing Batman and expressed surprise about people being in the dark about the development has caught everyone’s attention.

What is more, the fact that Ben Affleck has never confirmed his part in Matt Reeves’ directorial venture lends credence to Casey’s words. He has never said that he will carry on with the Batman role after “Justice League.” All he has said is that he admires Reeves and would love to work with him. Now that Casey has added his own side of the story, it does seem like “Justice League” could possibly be the last outing of Ben Affleck as Batman.

It may be mentioned here that “Justice League,” directed by Zack Snyder, releases on Nov 17, 2017.
