Ben Affleck wants to get out of playing Batman... In a cool way
LOS ANGELES - Justice League is set to hit theaters this weekend, but one member wants out! Batman, played by Ben Affleck, is telling the valet he wants the Batmobile pulled up quick!
While he’s happy to be a part of Justice League, he’s unsure of his involvement in the new Matt Reeves’ Batman movie. He said it’s “something [he’s] contemplating” and reflected on his time as Batman.
“You don’t do it forever, so I want to find a graceful and cool way to segue out of it.”
However, Ben Affleck is confident that the Justice League will be just fine without him.
“We certainly are in need of heroes in 2017. There’s a lot of stuff going on in the world, from natural to man-made disasters, and it’s really scary. Part of the appeal of this genre is wished fulfillment: Wouldn’t it be nice if there was somebody who can save us from all this, save us from ourselves, save us from the consequences of our actions and save us from people who are evil?”
