Recent pictures of former Batman Ben Affleck reveal that the actor is back in superhero shape.
Warner Bros. and DC appear to be heading in a brand-new direction with their upcoming slate. Ben Affleck was originally going to write, direct, and star in The Batman before Matt Reeves took over the project and cast Robert Pattinson as his Bruce Wayne. The Batman is now set to be a standalone film like Joker that lives outside of the DC Extended Universe. Michael Keaton is also expected to return as Batman in The Flash and introduce audiences to the idea of the multiverse.
While we will see more of Ben Affleck’s Batman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut, the actor is no longer attached to the iconic role. However, Daily Mail recently caught a glimpse of Affleck in Los Angeles and the actor appears to be back in superhero shape. You can see the recent images of Affleck below.
