Its been rumoured these past couple of weeks that Mr. Affleck was going to step down from his portrayal of Bruce Wayne/Batman, do to everybody “bugging him about it all the time” and trying to keep the movie on the “down-low.” That would be a horrible thing to happen to the DCEU, to lose Batman, but thankfully this is indeed not the case.
“I’m gonna direct the next Batman, we’re working on it. It’s one of those things that’s really frustrating because with Live By Night it took me a year-and-a-half to write it and get it ready and I worked really hard. It’s just no one gave a sh*t. No one was like, ‘WHERE’S LIVE BY NIGHT?’ But with Batman I keep getting the, WHERE’S THE F*CKING BATMAN?’ I’m like, ‘Whoa, I’m working! Give me a second!”
