Ben Affleck Is "Contemplating" Matt Reeves' THE BATMAN But Is Looking For A Way To Segue Out Of The Role

Bad news for those of you looking forward to The Batman as Ben Affleck has once again cast doubt on the possibility that he will take on the role of the Dark Knight following Justice League's release...

During the recent press junket for Justice League, most journalists appeared to avoid asking Ben Affleck about his future as Batman (probably because they were told not to). USA Today, however, did push the actor for details on what comes next for him as the Caped Crusader and it appears as if he's still mulling over whether or not to don the cape and cowl for The Batman from director Matt Reeves.

According to the site, Affleck said that the standalone movie is "something I’m contemplating," a sign perhaps that he's yet to sign up to star in the DC Comics adaptation he was set to write and direct. 

If Justice League is a hit, he might just change his mind, but the actor definitely sounds like he's ready to move on from the role. "You don’t do it forever, so I want to find a graceful and cool way to segue out of it." Well, on the plus side, it sounds like Affleck won't just ditch the character after Justice League! His tenure does appear to be nearing its end, though, and that's obviously a real shame!

At least he sounds excited about this superhero ensemble as he went on to explain why the movie is coming at a good time. "We certainly are in need of heroes in 2017. There’s a lot of stuff going on in the world, from natural to man-made disasters, and it’s really scary. Part of the appeal of this is wish
fulfillment: Wouldn’t it be nice if there was somebody who can save us from all this, save us from ourselves, save us from the consequences of our actions and save us from people who are evil?"

What do you think the future holds in store for Batfleck? Weigh in with your theories down below.
