Ben Affleck is no longer Batman
As DC moves forward, it looks like a partial reboot is in effect; with multiple Joker movies, DC Universe and TV franchises being clearly labeled as separate but equal to the DCCU, DC is clearly looking for a way to recharge and re-brand the cinematic universe.
The rumors were there before but seem not to be in full effect, that Ben Affleck will no longer be the cinematic Batman, according to the NY Post.
This means that there’s an opportunity to try out several versions of the caped crusader in the varied up coming Jojer films. Flinging ideas and seeing what sticks seems to be the style of the day for DC.
