Ben Affleck is talking about exiting his Batman role… again

Ben Affleck is talking about exiting his Batman role… again

Justice League has been a long, hard production, and a lot is riding on the movie that sees Batman assembling the first team of heroes in the DCEU.

"[It's] something I'm contemplating", Affleck said of appearing in The Batman. This was not only my first voyage into the world of this sort of story, but it was also my first immersion into a lot of certain stuff - the training, the visual effects work - that this sort of movie entailed. Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa).

But then his introduction in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice quelled unfounded fears, and he delivered a solid performance as Bruce Wayne and the Dark Knight. "It was delightful, I felt deeply and truly welcomed".

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds. "I've done 40 or something movies and this really stood out as special and huge and bigger than all the people involved". But how much of Justice League did Whedon actually shoot?

The newest DC film, Justice League, is hitting theaters this weekend. A former athlete who had 90 percent of his body replaced with otherworldly robotics after a awful accident, Fisher's character ain't happy with his barely human anymore status, and adds a new dimension of character gravitas to the slam-bang proceedings.

And, for that matter, from "Wonder Woman".

"They all come from different walks of life, they all have different abilities and they're all outcasts in their own way", Cavill says.

"Justice League" is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. "Some steps backwards, me thinks", a fan tweeted (below). "It features some of the best action ever in a DC Extended Universe movie, and fans are pumped to see the triumphant return of Wonder Woman and the introduction of Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg in this movie".
