What Does Casey Affleck Know About The Batman?

The running rumor has been that, despite the fact Ben Affleck has been saying nice things about Matt Reeves and being Batman, that he’ll find some way to worm out of the role fairly quickly. Dissatisfaction with the overwhelming amount of attention to his turn as Bruce Wayne over his other projects reportedly had him unhappy, ditching writing, then directing duties, and eventually, wanting out. This has led to some crazy call-outs of the current Caped Crusader on the podcast (which you should definitely check out.)

His brother, Casey, recently made an appearance on WEEI, a sports radio network in Boston, claiming that Ben was, “not going to do that movie, I don’t think. Sorry to say.” It is important to add that Casey is not on contract to Warner Brothers, and isn’t involved with any of their current DCEU operations The younger Affleck brother quickly backpedaled, saying he made that up, but it certainly fueled the already pretty lit fire.

Today, Ben’s reps felt it necessary to address the situation, saying, “He’ll continue to be Batman as long as the studio will have him.” Maybe this is all window dressing. Maybe Joss Whedon has changed Affleck’s opinion of the role and the character. So much of the statements leading up to a major tentpole film are manufactured, so it’s hard to tell if the rumors themselves aren’t just for media hype. Time will obviously tell, but we’ll keep breaking it down on the show – you just keep listening.
