SDCC 2017: BREAKING: Ben Affleck says he’s definitely staying as Batman!

July 22nd, 2017 by Marc Comments

Yes! Ben Affleck has responded to the rumours he’s leaving the DC Movie Universe! And he’s going nowhere!

Speaking a few minutes ago at SDCC’s live-action DC panel, the actor made his feelings quite clear:

“Let me be very clear, I am the luckiest guy in the world.

“Batman is the coolest f#@king part in any universe. I am so thrilled to do it.

“With Matt Reeves doing it, I would be an ape on the ground for Matt Reeves, nevermind being Batman. It’s incredible.”

Thanks, Ben… that’s all we need to know!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
