"Affleck Probably Out As Batman" Claims The Hollywood Reporter

THR says Warner Bros. will have Ben Affleck replaced as Batman, which to me seems like a mistake especially since "Justice League" is a couple of months away. But they do need to realize that he was the best thing in BvS. The report says that the WB is "working on plans to usher out Affleck's Batman," and that they plan to do it as an in-universe plot point in "some shape or form." They want it to be done  "gracefully," and perhaps even before "The Batman," the solo film that at one point he was writing, directing, and starring in.

The article does bring up a good point. Affleck will be in his late 40s when "The Batman" movie hits theaters and, with a new Batman trilogy in mind, Affleck will maybe be too old when that's all through and done with. Point taken. There's also the rumor that his screenplay for the film has been tossed and director Matt Reeves is hiring a new writer.

Affleck is also recovering from rehab for alcoholism and is in the midst of a very public divorce. He also recently left another project, J.C. Chandor's "Triple Frontier." The guy probably needs to take a breather. Hard to do that as the WB counts on you as being their Batman.
