Marvel Comics Hulu Howard the Duck MODOK Disney Joe Quesada Comic-Con

Marvel Exec Joe Quesada has officially shut down rumors that Disney is closing down Marvel Comics.

Avengers: Endgame hits theaters this April and will be the twenty-second film in the long-running Marvel Cinematic Universe. Despite the continued success of the MCU, a recent rumor suggested that Disney would be shutting down Marvel Comics. Joe Quesada has since come out to clarify that the rumors are false.

Joe Quesada took to his Twitter to clarify that Disney is not closing up Marvel Comics anytime soon. Quesada is known for producing television series such as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.Daredevil, and Luke Cage. He’s also known for his years of work as a writer and artist for comics such as Batman, Spider-Man, and Daredevil. Check out the message to fans from Joe Quesada in the post below.

Before Avengers: Endgame arrives in theaters, the MCU will introduce audiences to a new hero in Captain Marvel, which hits the big screen next week. The film stars Brie Larson as the cosmic hero teased during the end credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War. The third and final MCU adventure hitting theaters this year is Sony’s Spider-Man: Far From Home. 

Despite these rumors regarding Marvel Comics, which were thankfully proven false, Disney and Marvel Studios recently had a very successful night at the Academy Awards. Black Panther won the studio its first three Oscars, which were for Production Design, Costume Design, and Best Original Score. Avengers: Infinity War was also nominated but lost its nomination for Best Visual FX to the Neil Armstrong biopic First Man.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7Next

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender X-Men

Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.

Ben Barnes

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Jigsaw Marvel

Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling Blade Runner 2049

I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm Mad Men

Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

Richard Madden

Richard Madden Bodyguard

Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
