Ben Affleck Still 'Contemplating' Being Batman After Justice League

Gal Gadot confirms Brett Ratner off Wonder Woman 2

It's safe to say that Ben Affleck's tenure as Batman has been a hard one. Watch them walk the Justice League red carpet live tonight at 8:30 PM ET/5:30PM PT on the live stream below, and check out the movie in theaters this weekend!

While this may be the third time this has happened, I wouldn't be surprised if we got yet another conflicting response later on.

Still, though, Affleck's connection to the character continues to be a subject of discussion. We feel the loss of that character in this movie because he's not present anymore.

Producer Charles Roven also took a few minutes to speak with us about the film. In Justice League, Lane said we see Martha moving on from the events that transpired with Superman in BvS, and "it's very wonderful to see the void being filled". Despite earlier declarations about what seemed to be a longer commitment to the role, the word "contemplating" suggests that he hasn't quite decided if he'll be part of The Batman or not.

While he is apparently signed for five movies as Batman (it's not clear if his Suicide Squad cameo counts towards that) rumors surfaced over the summer that Justice League would be his last time in the cape and cowl, but he shot those down with comments at San Diego Comic-Con, indicating that he's "the luckiest guy in the world" to play Batman. The Flash piece shows a pretty similar costume design to what has been seen in the film, just with a more damaged looking texture.

Justice League's early reviews suggest while not flawless, it is a step in the right direction.

Joe Morton, who plays Dr. Silas Stone, spoke about the importance of Cyborg in Justice League. Sure, it may rub many the wrong way to see our beloved Man of Steel weigh the possibility of letting people die, but I've always thought it made for a rounded, interesting character. "He is a character who doesn't have an alias; he can't put on a pair of glasses and a hat and sort of disappear. It's a mixed bag of execution that's saved by the actors, who rise above the shortcomings to deliver an engaging, amusing and hopeful, yet flawed, entry to the DCEU".

We also got to chat with Hippolyta actress Connie Nielsen, who discussed the impact and cultural importance of Wonder Woman. It's fucking awesome and I still can't believe it after two films...
