I wonder if these recent allegations will have any effect on the matter

I think he's gonna walk away regardless. All this does now is give the studio a way to dump him with minimal backlash.

Or..Norton and Ruffalo? Or Howard and Cheadle?

Or Spider-Man getting a full reboot just two years (Civil War first appearance) later?

Batman can survive. It'd be great if the next guy can actually use his real voice.

If Christian Bale can be replaced so easily, Affleck easily can. Bale was loved by general audiences. His last 2 Batman films each grossed a Billion. Affleck has only appeared in poorly received DCEU films so far. I don't think general audiences are attached to his version at all. I'd wager Gadot was WW is leagues more popular.

Armitage has been the best choice I've seen around. I think it would be silly to go with a younger Bruce Wayne/Batman. We already got the young Batman story told perfectly with Christian Bale. It makes sense to continue the older Batman to tell the story of Batman and his sidekicks/family. That has not been done well before.

^ And I know that's a decade old, but dang, if that isn't Bruce Wayne.



^ He's within the ballpark of Batfit already.

And he's only ONE YEAR older than Affleck.

I am rehyped, lol.

I think Affleck could have killed it if not for Snyder's Punisher-esque approach.

We need a BTAS/Arkham style Batman. Make a soft reboot happen!

^ Have a different Alfred-cause why not?-
This is a weird idea, but what about Gary Oldman as Alfred.

6’2, Black hair, blue eyes, accomplished actor who has proven he can do Dark... and yet I don’t have the serious urge to see him in the role. Wouldn’t be mad though.

Yeah I think we can all agree casting Affleck was a bad decision. Even people who wanted to make an effort tend to say stuff like "he wasn't as bad as I thought he would be"

Take your DCEU shaded glasses off for one god damn minute

The man is a creep and the evidence is piling up against him. To suggest what you are suggesting is to blatantly dig a hole in the ground and stick your head in, which is, unsurprisingly, the basis for which you make most of your posts.

If Ben is gone, then Jared needs to go too.

with revelations affleck is defently gone now.justice league will be his final
film as batman.if he promates JL i will be surprised.he is toxic now.

he was probally on his way out anyway

I can totaly see matt reeves' The Batman being reboot of batman.rather or not it caused by flahspoint remains the question.

some people on social media have issue with Gal gadot's past In israeli military but that is nothing compared to affleck grouping women and he even apolgzed to one woman so it is not lies.

For the same reasons ? Maybe it's how I've interpreted the way you've written that but it sounds like you are saying for the same reasons and not just cos on the whole he's (Leto) disliked in the role (but not by me).

Ben was great in his role. He's gonna leave probably because of all this stuff coming out.

Jared was not good in his role. I don't think he deserves a second chance unless he turns in a completely different performance.

Ben was great as batman.Leto is worst live action Joker ever.the idea that he would be first actor to play joker multiple times in films is so crazy.

Or his actual performance in any future film isn't edited to death so far beyond what he brought to the role in the original material recorded.

I agree. They haven't even shared a movie together. There is no great Batman/Joker rivalry the audiences or fans will miss if Letoker goes after Batfleck.

I'm not against Leto going but he did a better job in his role than Affleck could playing Batman. I say get a Great enough actor to replace Affleck. One who can elevate the role into something more and would be great on screen acting against Leto.

What's crazy is Affleck, Cavill, Leto and Eisenberg have all been nominated and won Razzies for their performances in DCEU films.

I don't think general audiences would care less if any of them are replaced. Gadot seems to be the only one who has won the public over.
