Fans React To Ben Affleck Leaving The Role Of Batman

The movies may have sucked but he was pretty good in the role.

After much speculation on the future of Ben Affleck as Batman, it was recently reported that the actor will be leaving the role as the Caped Crusader. Affleck took on the role in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League and Suicide Squad and although those films sucked, his performance as Bruce Wayne was pretty well received for the most part. With Matt Reeves’ upcoming The Batman to be released in 2021, many were assuming that Affleck would not reprise his role which is now looking to be the case.

Although Warner Bros. hasn’t given any official word on the matter, Affleck took to Twitter to support the project and in a way, sorta confirmed the news. Check out the post below:

With this in mind, we’re gonna see a different Batman in Matt Reeves’ film and fans have taken to the platform to express how they feel about Affleck’s apparent departure from the role with a number of them expressing gratitude, lamentation and praise towards his performance. Check out some of the fan reactions below:

Yeah, it’s safe to say that Ben Affleck was good as Batman despite the quality of the films he was in. One Twitter user recognizes that, posting:

It’s not all love for Batfleck however as one user seems fine with the news, considering Affleck to be the worst incarnation of the character, posting:

Okay, I wouldn’t call him the worst Batman even if he may not be on par with Michael Keaton, Christian Bale or Adam West but god, he’s at least better than George Clooney and Val Kilmer. Whatever it is, Affleck definitely made an impact as the character and whoever Matt Reeves picks for the upcoming film, we sure hope that he delivers cause from what the director described in regards to the film’s approach, The Batman could just be something special.
