Ben Affleck Denies Rumors He Is Exiting 'Batman'

Warner Bros. unveiled sizzling footage Saturday from upcoming movies like "Ready Player One", "Justice League" and "Blade Runner 2049" at Comic-Con International here.

Ben Affleck might not be your Batman for that much longer, if the new report from THR is true.

"Let me be clear", said Affleck. I am the luckiest guy int the world.

Ben Affleck says he has no intention of surrendering his role of Batman to another actor any time soon. "I would be a f--g ape on the ground for [director] Matt Reeves", he joked. Already he has stepped away from directing the film and Reeves is dropping the script that Affleck wrote with D.C. Entertainment's Geoff Johns.

He also excitedly threw around chairs after the unveiling of the new Justice League trailer and allowed that his favorite moment was surfing on the Batmobile. We'll be sure to keep you updated as the project develops.




The Batman v Superman star, dressed casually in a t-shirt, jeans and a blue bomber jacket, was joined by Justice League costars: Wonder Woman Gal Gadot, Superman Henry Cavill, The Flash Ezra Miller, Aquaman Jason Momoa and Cyborg Ray Fisher. "I know there's this misconception that because I'm not directing it, that maybe I wasn't enthusiastic about it (the new Batman series), (but) it's f**king fantastic!"

The performing artist was initially meant to compose, direct and star in the imminent independent film, The Batman.
