Ever since “Batman vs. Superman” was released, fans have had mixed feelings about Ben Affleck’s portrayal of the role of Batman. Some were happy with the actor’s performance while the majority seemed to have a different opinion.

No more ‘Batman’ films for Ben Affleck?

It seems like all the criticism and negative reviews have gotten to the star. According to Ben’s younger brother, Casey Affleck, Ben will not do the “Batman” movie.

In an interview with WEEI Sports, even Casey said he thought he was just an OK Batman, although he retracted that by saying, "No, I thought he was great.

He was great. He’s a hero, so he had something to channel and work with there. But he’s not going to do that movie, I don’t think. Sorry to say. Is that breaking news? Because I was just kind of making that up, I don’t know.”

Science Fiction wrote that the representatives of both Ben and Casey were quick to say that Ben would stay in the role "as long as the studio will have him." and that Casey was not talking from a first-hand position. He was just having a bit of fun.

Late last month, reports came out that Warner Bros was looking to move out Ben Affleck as Batman “gracefully.” Warner Bros is the studio responsible for “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.” It’s also the studio behind the much-awaited “Justice League.” At the moment, Ben has yet to release a statement regarding this issue.

Different view from the Warner Bros chief

Warner Bros studio chief Toby Emmerich said that Ben is their Batman. In a statement, the studio chief revealed that they want to keep him in the role as long as they can, which is good news for Ben Affleck’s fans.

The studio also revealed that the stand-alone film “The Batman” is still in the works with Ben in the titular role.

During the San Diego Comic-Con last month, Ben got close to his fans by disguising himself and walking the floor of the event. Before the arrival of the cast of the “Justice League” movie, he wore a green shirt with the face of “Sesame Street’s” Oscar the Grouch and a mask to conceal his face.

He also told the crowd that Batman is the coolest role he has had, implying that he will still reprise his role in the stand-alone film.

The much-awaited "Justice League" movie will not be complete without Ben the Batman.

Other films

Future movies of DC include “The Flash,” which was later changed to “Flashpoint.” “Cyborg” is also scheduled to appear on the big screen by 2020. Dwayne Johnson was cast as Black Adam for “Shazam!” which is due in 2019. The casting for “Gotham City Sirens,” with Margot Robbie to reprise her role as Harley Quinn, is still ongoing.
