Even though Ben Affleck just put all the Justice League fans at ease with his statement at SDCC that he would be sticking around to play Batman, his brother Casey Affleck may have just freaked them all out again.
While visiting WEEI’s Dale & Holley with Keefe radio program, Ben’s brother Casey had no problem dropping a huge bomb about his brother that will most definitely send the fandom into a frenzy. “I thought he was an okay Batman,” Casey said. “As far as…No, he was great. He was great. He’s a hero, so he had something to channel and work with there. But he’s not going to do that movie, I don’t think. Sorry to say.”
Unknown to the fact that he may have just exposed some extremely breaking news he quickly followed it up with, “Is that breaking news? Because I was just kind of making that up. I don’t know.”
Just last month Ben tried to put to rest all of the rumors about his future as the DC legend. “Let me be very clear, I am the luckiest guy in the world. Batman is the coolest (expletive) part in any universe, DC (or) Marvel. I’m so thrilled to do it,” Affleck said at the Justice League panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
There hasn’t been any comment from Ben or DC yet, so perhaps Casey was just speaking out of turn. Either way, we will keep you posted if there are any updates. In the meantime, check out Casey’s interview below. Skip to around the 6:00 mark to watch the Batman part.
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
