Ben Affleck refutes Batman rumors: 'I'm really blown away and excited'm

"Let me be clear", said Affleck.

Reeves also has acknowledged that he has a Batman trilogy rolling around in his head, and given his success making two-thirds of a trilogy out of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes, it seems fair to anticipate that Warners will want him to realize his vision. We love him as Batman. The report threatened to overshadow Warner Bros.' flashy Hall H presentation on Saturday, which was focused on hyping the studio's big superhero mashup film "Justice League", which hits theaters in November.

"Batman is the coolest fucking part in any universe". Affleck insisted that he's still interested in playing Batman, even though he's not directing the upcoming Batman movie. "I am thrilled to do it". In the original Flashpoint story, written by Johns, The Flash met an alternate universe Batman, who was really Thomas Wayne, a gun-toting Batman obsessed with revenge for the murder of his son Bruce and wife Martha.

Abigail Joins Street Fighter V Later This Month
Interesting characters from the old games, such as Guy, Cody and Rolento, have joined the roster of several Street Fighter titles. Even so, it doesn't rule out the possibility of more fan favorites coming to Street Fighter 5 through the game's Season 3 DLC.

Matt Reeves, who took over for Affleck after he backed out from directing the project in January, said in early 2017 that he was throwing out Affleck's script and starting over. So for now The Batman is on track to keep moving forward and Ben Affleck will suit up as The Dark Knight yet again. "With Matt Reeves doing it, I would be a f***ing ape on the ground for Matt Reeves", he said. There is no release date yet for The Batman.

Speaking to a crowd of about 6,500 fans at San Diego Comic-Con, Affleck unequivocally assured the crowd that he is still starring in "The Batman".

Neither Snyder nor Whedon were at Comic-Con, although Snyder tweeted Friday that he was sending his best to the "Justice League" team.
