Ben Affleck steps down as Batman

After two years of Will he or Won't he? and all kinds of rumors about his status as the Dark Knight of Gotham, Ben Affleck made it official at last: He's no longer Batman.

James Gunn, formerly of Guardians of the Galaxy, is set to direct, with a host of new characters coming in to replace the likes of Deadshot, Captain Boomberang and Killer Croc. And as Bruce Wayne, there's an nearly charming chip on his shoulder, especially in his confrontation with Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) at Lex Luthor's party.

While I think he'd do fine in the action scenes, the biggest ding against him is his physicality. "He is such an iconic and compelling character, and one that resonates with me deeply".

In response to the reports, Affleck, ever the good sport, tweeted his support.

What we do know is that The Batman will NOT - despite speculation - be based on Frank Miller's Batman: Year One comic. The fight choreography in that show is stunning and Charlie Cox absolutely knocks it out of the park in every single scene that he's in.

"Superhero movies get the level of attention that is nothing like any film I've done".

As per the report, the movie which will release in the summer of 2021, will be about a young Bruce Wayne.

While Affleck helped write the story for the upcoming film, he reportedly did not feel he was right for the part as this movie will focus on a younger version of the character.

Whew. Oscar Isaac is so handsome y'all.

While the criteria for the next actor might be very specific, there's no shortage of movie stars who would like a crack at the legendary role of Batman.

Warner Bros. and DC Films are also developing The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, Black Adam, Cyborg, Supergirl, New Gods, and Nightwing. But still, it's nice to get an update every once in a while to remind us that it's actually still being thought about beyond the realm of "hey, is Ben Affleck gonna be in this thing or what?" The lack of detective aspect in the Batman movie is something that has annoyed me for ages.
