Ben Affleck isn’t holding back about his unhappiness with the Batman script he co-wrote.
Before Matt Reeves took over writing and directing duties on the upcoming Batman solo movie, Justice League star Ben Affleck was going to write and direct the film, which he would also star in. After working on a script for some time, Ben Affleck walked away from the project and just recently walked away from the Batman role altogether.
Ben Affleck was recently talking to IGN about his upcoming Netflix movie Tripe Frontier when he gave some insight into why he walked away from the solo movie focusing on the Dark Knight. Check out what the actor had to say about the unused script below.
“That was part of the problem is that we worked on the script, I was trying to figure out how to crack it, and I was never happy enough with it where I thought it was worth going out and making it because I just didn’t want to do a version that I wasn’t really excited. by, so I still don’t know.”

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
