WATCH: Here we go again, Casey Affleck just said that Ben Affleck isn’t doing The Batman

August 16th, 2017 by Marc Comments

After all the kerfuffle during this year’s SDCC about wether or not Ben Affleck was staying on as Batman/Bruce Wayne (here), we thought we were done.

But, nope.

In an interview with WEEI Sports, Boston, Affleck’s brother, Casey Affleck, was asked about Ben’s Batman and upcoming standalone adventure and his response was all going just great until he dropped a little bombshell at the end: “I thought he was an OK Batman,” Affleck said.

“No, I thought he was great. He was great. He’s a hero, so he had something to channel and work with there. But he’s not going to do that movie, I don’t think. Sorry to say.”

When one of the hosts respond that that’s breaking news, the actor laughs and adds: “Is that breaking news? Because I was just kind of making that up, I don’t know.”


It happens around the 6.20 mark in the video below.

We think that Casey was either joking or just making it up. Heck, he may even just be trolling his brother.

Who knows?

All we can figure is that we shouldn’t assume anything until The Batman is, at the very least, filming.

What do you all say?

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….
