Batman Affleck, I Meant Ben Affleck… I Meant Batman! May Be The Hero To Save The DCU!!!
Ben Affleck has donned the role as Batman, making his first appearance in Zach Snyder’s ‘Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice.’ The movie was blasted by the critics and many viewers were heavily disappointed by the movie. Yet tons of fans were thrilled. Nonetheless, nearly everyone was blown away by Affleck’s portrayal as the Dark Knight.
Affleck’s second appearance as the current Batman was in the summer blockbuster ‘The Suicide Squad.’ His screen time was a brief cameo scene and an after credits teaser for ‘The Justice League.’
Rumors have been blowing up the internet about Affleck’s future as the Batman. Many speculated that Affleck was unhappy with the role. Rumors have gone as far as to suggest DC plans to kill Batman off, perhaps with a final crisis to avoid continuities issues.
At the Justice League Panel this past Saturday at San Diego Comic Con, Affleck was confronted with the rumor. He reassured everyone that the rumors were false and complete nonsense. Additionally, Affleck spoke passionately how much he loves his role as Batman.
How Crucial Is Affleck’s Role In The Bigger Picture?
Taking a step back, the DCU (DC Universe) is at a state of uncertainty. While it is nearly impossible to keep up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, DC has been trying their best. Their last release, ‘Wonder Woman’ was a huge summer hit. The movie was loved by fans and critics alike. Marvel has been building their character roster gradually over many movies and building up more fans craving more stories. DC is trying their best to keep up and the ‘Justice League’ may strengthen the DCU.
Back to Batman!! In the upcoming movie ‘Justice League’ Batman is the one to assemble the team of heroes. Can Batman be the backbone of the DCU? Or is the entire franchise going to crash and burn? I am not saying that the fate of which is dependent on Affleck. I am saying that Batman is the hero we need. No powers, just time energy and a good will. The fight goes on. One man is faced up against an ultimate super power so great. You can’t help to root for him. Batman? No. I am talking about Ben Affleck.
Fans Are Excited For The Future Of The DC Cinematic Universe And Ben Affleck Is Right There With Them.
