After Christian Bale’s The Dark Knight trilogy, Ben Affleck was cast as the Caped Crusader. But following the box office and critical disappointments of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, the star hung up his cape. Originally, Affleck was set to write, direct and star in his very own solo movie nicknamed The Batman.
However, the film did not come to pass and instead Matt Reeves was given the task of rebooting Batman for Warner Bros once again.
Robert Pattinson has since been cast as the new Bruce Wayne in the upcoming movie, which is released next year.
But just why did Affleck drop the part and his solo movie?
Well, now the 47-year-old has given a frank and honest answer.
