I liked him as the bat. He’s only as good as his script
Batflecks fighting in the films I think was the best fighting out of any Batman film from BVS

He was a good Batman the script limited his potential but everyone knew and knows he’s a good actor. Hope they get someone as good as he was

So far Batfleck is the best and most comic book accurate Batman to ever grace the silver screen... I'll miss his Bruce Wayne more though; I thought his Bruce Wayne was perfect!

Like I don't mind him hanging up the Cape. In a positive note he can now focus on himself and staying healthy and co parenting his kids with Jennifer Garner.
Tragic smh, he didnt get a fair shake, he had potential to truly be the best Batman, I'll never forget that beautiful warehouse scene and the intensity he brought to bvs...Thanks for a solid run Ben
I just wanted to see him as a great Batman there was so much potential

A. He didn't confirm he's giving up on the role.
B. It's gonna be a story arc for the Matt's Batman trilogy.
C. There's a possibility that he might reprise his Batman role in the next instalments of solo Batman movies. Period.

Acting wise Affleck is the best by far to be the Bat, Bale was way more realistic in his moments as Wayne—lines included because both had horrible ones.

WB can't keep great actors for roles in the DCEU!

"I'll prove them wrong" Gives up on Batman...... I cant stand Affleck

It would make sense right since Matt Reeves movies is supposed to take place in Batman's early years meaning they need someone younger?
CJ, I wholeheartedly agree with you regarding the iconic warehouse fight scene being the best thing ever. Affleck would've been ideal as a big, brooding Caped Crusader, capable of snapping Tom Hardy's Bane in two with minimal effort lol. But that warehouse fight scene alone is quintessentially how I imagine a project with Affleck would've turned out- violent af, gritty, cinematic, dark (duh), and most likely, FAR more successful than jl. I realize not everyone likes him as Batman, but he was committed to getting the right physique for the role and he has the acting chops as well.
Such a damn shame. Would’ve loved to see his performance fully realized and it would’ve been godlike if he ended up directed like what was originally intended

He was a good Batman, the warehouse scene was the highlight. With a better script/director he could of been great.

Him in BVS, I loved, thats my favorite onscreen Batman. But when he was basically sleepwalking through JL, I was wanting it to go to someone who still had passion for it

Hey dc i have an idea...... START OVER!!!!

Start with Superman with Henry Cavil
Then do Batman and get Ben Affleck BACK
Keep wonder woman & Aquaman the way they are. They r perfect the way they r.

Ben Affleck as Batman was so good, After Christian Bale, I still didn't learn to say goodbye and now with Ben Affleck also not
Gary Mijangos

He isn’t part of the Matt reaves project however he still has a contract with warner bros studios so he may still be part of the justice league or make cameos in other films
Paul Champion
Paul Champion:
RIP BATFLECK, wish we got to see more of you. A solo movie would have been great at least with Affleck in it.

I thought he was the best Batman we've had.. the Dark Knight movies were good but Bale really dropped the ball inside the suit. Affleck is a much better actor and really sold the role, I am sad to see him go. That said, they can get someone who will do well, and this time, someone who they can keep on a leash lol.

He was a great Batman. Felt like he came straight out of The Dark Knight Returns comics. They should have given him a solo Batman movie. Justice League was a rushed mess and he deserved better.

Patrick Shore

Ben Affleck was my #1 best Batman actor of all time. Hearing that he's leaving the cowl behind, I'm really upset about that, and I think I was because we were pushing him to hard. Like we kept in asking him about where's the batman film coming out and is he working on it right now, at the time when he was director. Without Batfleck, the DCEU/World of DC could crumble, and when we saw him, he was fantastic, not only because how awesome he was, but because of the Warehouse scene of course. Even though it might have been another actor doing the punching, he was part of it and he brought the Arkham games to life with those fighting skills.
Thanks Ben for being a great Batman so far. Miss ya.

Wow. It seemed like just the other day we were getting pictures of the new Batmobile and Batman's new look for Dawn of Justice. Now three unsuccessful stints later and Ben Affleck is no longer Batman. I would have liked for him to continue as the Bat, but can't blame him for wanting out. Incredible how WB could make someone NOT want to be Batman.

I don't know the full details for sure, so there may be more to things than WB's woeful mismanagement, but that definitely played a huge factor I'm sure.

I LOVED Ben Affleck in the BM role... PLUS I LIKE CONTINUITY OF THE ACTORS... Switching out the Actors causes a level of cheesiness and then Fan disconnection!!! So I'm hoping the Relationship repairs and he's back! 😎❤👌
