Nana-Nana-Nope: New Rumours That Affleck Wants To Quit As Batman

Affleck was set to write and direct a standalone Batman, but he pulled out as director last month. The indignities kept coming, as Warner Bros. ordered sweeping rewrites to this floundering project before landing Planet of the Apes remake maestro Matt Reeves to fill the directorial vacuum.

After the staggeringly underwhelming effort that was 'Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice,' it seems that Affleck's enthusiasm for The Dark Knight has evaporated nearly entirely. But he also urged listeners to take the rumours with a "grain of salt". Additionally, Reeves' background in big-scale sci-fi movies might mean that we can finally get a big-screen live-action Batman that isn't "grounded" or "realistic" once again.

As such, be careful reading too much into current rumors that suggest Ben Affleck might be hanging up his cape and cowl following a further breakdown of communication between the actor and DC studios.

The latest rumor about Affleck and The Batman comes to us from our friends over at Collider via their Collider Heroes show. What has come out of the conversation with all three was this. "He doesn't want to be Batman anymore".

Pressure on Wenger to break Bayern curse in Champions League
Eventually, it was an error from Lewandowski in an unfamiliar position on the pitch that gave the Gunners a vital away goal . Neuer saved Sanchez's penalty, but the Chile global drilled home the rebound from a tight angle at the second attempt.

And according to insiders, the 44-year-old's apathetic responses are due to the fact that he wants to get out of playing the Caped Crusader altogether.

"Ben Affleck, make no mistake, he wants out". Reports about the state of the Batman movie script have been all over the place (depending on who you ask, either it's getting a complete overhaul or all good to go and perfectly good as-is), and Affleck's expressed his exasperation over the constant questioning and vast scrutiny from fans.

Campea said all his sources talked about how Affleck wants out, rather than other details such as whether the script for the next Batman film is any good. That'd be a major blow to the franchise he's helped build (and put star power behind), but maybe he feels it's time to cut his losses?

But if the man's heart isn't it in it, it's hard to see how a 'Batman' film could wind up being any better than 'vs Superman.' So you'd think they'd be better off letting him go.
