Ben Affleck played Batman for Zack Snyder

Ben Affleck played Batman for Zack Snyder in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as well as the upcoming Snyder Cut of Justice League, and Affleck also briefly appeared in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad

Ben was supposed to also star in The Batman along with Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke but Affleck departed the role citing script issues. However, it has since been claimed Affleck left because of issues with Geoff Johns not wanting to use Affleck’s Batman script, which according to Jay Oliva and Manganiello was the best ever Batman script.

Rumors offer that Ben Affleck might get to actually do his version of The Batman as it is rumored Affleck will be returning to the DCEU in an HBO Max series which could potentially get announced Saturday at the DC FanDome virtual convention which has a number of Batman-related panels including:

Update: Ben’s brother also wishes him a happy birthday:

“40 years ago my brother was a kid with an awkward stance and an overly tucked-in batman shirt. But he grew up, and he eventually got the whole suit,” posted Casey Affleck. “And then things went downhill fast. I am back to red cords and Benji has no bat suit. But wisdom comes with winters, and today Ben turned 48. And he is doing great!”

Casey continued: “Benson, if you are feeling old- because you are- and you notice things are falling apart a little on your body- because you are so old- imagine how John Glenn felt. He said, “As I hurtled through space one thought kept crossing my mind- every part of this rocket was supplied by the lowest bidder. Happy Birthday, champ! Keep going! You ain’t heavy.”
