Re: Ben Affleck IS Bruce Wayne/Batman.
I actually doubt that there will be more than one (if that many) solo Batman films with Affleck as Batman.
I recall his negotiations for Justice League broke down because he said if he directed, he wanted to play a lead as well.
I would say he's signed a 3-picture deal.
-A solo Batman film (maybe).
-Justice League film.
Ben isn't going to be playing this role well into his 50s.
I'm all for it -- but as far as WORLD BUILDING and making a DC Cinematic Universe, going old out of the gate isn't the best approach -- even though I love the more seasoned Batman.
My posts are facts, not opinion. Enjoy.
