10 Young Actors Who Could Replace Ben Affleck As Batman
After suiting up three times, rumors are suggesting that Ben Affleck will not play Batman in Matt Reeve’s upcoming solo film. Apparently, Reeve’s script focuses on a younger Batman instead of following a Caped Crusader who is already well-established into his crime-fighting career. Hopefully, whatever story Reeves has cooking up is worth the recast and will showcase this younger Batman kicking butt on a scale movie-goers have yet to see.
To replace Ben Affleck, DC is pivoting to a younger actor who could potentially be a part of the cinematic universe for years to come. Batman is likely the publisher’s most popular character, so they need to choose an actor who could be an imposing presence on their larger film library moving forward. Ben Affleck’s version of the character is certainly enjoyable, and the warehouse fight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is likely Batman’s coolest battle on the big screen, but DC needs a younger, more lively Batman if they want their films to match Marvel Studios.
