Ben Affleck 'dropped' from DC Universe as 'search for new Batman starts'

17 Octobre, 2018, 12:55 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

Towards the end of the story, Ben Affleck's fate was revealed as the publication claimed a search for a new Batman was underway. While Warner Bros. and DC reshuffle their deck, some of their main stars are being left in the dust.

They wrote: 'The studio is not now moving forward with Batman and Superman movies featuring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, respectively'.

This comes weeks after Warner Bros and Cavill were involved in a contract dispute regarding his future in the DCEU, around the same time as Affleck checked himself into rehab for alcohol addiction.

Hidden in a Variety report, the news was carefully intertwined with the announcement that The Flash movie will be pushed back to 2021. After the success of Man of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros. may have gotten ahead of themselves.

'Superman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors, ' a studio source told The Hollywood Reporter.

Warner Bros are busy trying to reboot their box office bombing and critically panned DC Extended Universe following Justice League's disastrous run previous year.

"It is expected to recast the Dark Knight with a different actor".

Both Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill are reportedly finished with the DC cinematic universe, Variety are reporting. Cavill has recently accepted the lead role in Netflix's The Witcher series, after a successful supporting role in Mission: Impossible - Fallout prompted him to hike his fee, according to reports. Another source hints that this is just one big moment as Warner Bros. attempts to "reset" the direction of DC Films. This idea is backed up by comments from WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey during an investor call earlier this month, in which he said, "Some of our franchises, in particular DC, we all think we can do better".

The latest report confirms their exit from the roles.
