Scott Adkins Replaces Ben Affleck As DCEU Batman In Awesome New Image

Scott Adkins Ben Affleck Batman DCEUScott Adkins dons Ben Affleck’s former cape and cowl in this impressive fan-made image for Matt Reeves’ upcoming DCEU Batman film.

Since Ben Affleck announced that he would be hanging up the mantle as the Dark Knight in the DC Extended Universe, fans have been mourning his short-lived stunt as the Caped Crusader, but also simultaneously trying to figure out which actor is the perfect fit to replace him as the Batman in Matt Reeves’ upcoming untitled solo film starring the character. One of the most exciting fan-casting decisions that has gone around is actor and stuntman Scott Adkins, who recently shared an audition tape of himself trying out for the role of Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, in the 2016 DCEU film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Scott Adkins has an impressive resume of action films and not only that, he has the perfect look for a hardened, dark character like the DCEU’s Caped Crusader. A talented artist by the name of Mbatshi Razor Kebaatlhotse recently sent us this impressive piece of art depicting Scott Adkins as the Dark Knight and it only makes the casting seem even more perfect. Fans can check out the image below to get hyped for the next big-screen incarnation of the Dark Knight!

Ben Affleck Scott Adkins Batman DCEU

Scott Adkins’ name has been mentioned by fans for a number of superhero and supervillain roles due to his incredible talent, as showcased in many of his action movies including 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum, 2012’s The Expendables 2, and the maligned 2009 X-Men prequel film, X-Men: Origins: Wolverine, where the actor starred as the infamous Weapon X character, who was formerly known as Deadpool alter ego Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds), who eventually went on to headline his own R-rated franchise.

Given the reception of X-Men: Origins: Wolverine and the Weapon X character in particular, Scott Adkins is due for a good comic book redemption, just like actors such as Josh Brolin and Michael Fassbender, both of which starred in the comic book adaption that was less than well-received, 2010’s Jonah Hex, a DC film that eventually led to both actors earning incredibly iconic characters and performances in separate Marvel films.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Batman in the DCEU as soon as more information becomes available. What’s your opinion on the awesome art piece? Do you think Scott Adkins would make a great Batman or is there another actor better suited for the iconic role? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

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

Previous1 of 7

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.

    Did Ben Affleck say “Why” he was quitting? I could understand if he had other movies in mind or was pretty much done with the whole celebrity thing to be home with Kids etc. With all the chaos happening Now only because we have bad government and news reporters sticking up for majority Dems, & half the Republicans and Mueller 😠 It would be best for all Actors tell fans Why in today society due to having Everyone wonder If it’s True or was he Fired? I’m Just Saying it’s hard to know the Truth anymore is all.

    • Bass

      Wow, you are nosey, he didn’t quit.

      • Joseph Rodrigues

        Apparently being EXCITED for a movie means you have quit according to these morons.

      • Diana

        Nosey. Lol that’s a good one. Maybe I wanted my nose to be up in his A$$ 😂🤣

  • Jeffrey Scott Rinker

    Yes, Adams would be great for this role and please not Robert Pattinson!!!! Nobody needs a hero that glistens!!!!

  • Joseph Rodrigues

    For f’u’ck sake Affleck has not quit playing the role of batman, this role for Matt Reeves movie is about a YOUNG ‘F’U’CKING BATMAN. Affleck in his tweet said “he is EXCITED……(DO YOU KNOW WHAT F’U’C’KING EXCITED IS?) to see Matt Reeves vision come to life in summer 2021” WHERE IN THIS F’U’C’KING TWEET DOES IT SAY AFFLECK IS DONE WITH THE ROLE OF BATMAN. Even Ray Fisher says “To my understanding the movie is about a young batman in the DCEU, Ben is the older batman so he can back for sequels” Ben is also going to cameo in SS2 and BOP. GET YOU F’U’C’K’ING FACT RIGHT YOU STUPID A$$CLOWN AND STOP THROWING BS.

    • Do you think Ben Barnes would be a good Batman?

      • Joseph Rodrigues

        Probably. Then again I could see him as Nightwing

  • Danny Ganelin

    Adkins could be a great Batman. He has the physical chops and can get dark and gritty for the role of the Dark Knight. I think it could work.
