Ben Affleck plotting 'graceful and cool' Batman exit

This is a stark contrast to the Doomsday reveal in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice promotion. Affleck has gone on record saying he doesn't want to play as Batman anymore, only to pull a 180 just days - sometimes hours later - and say he is committed to the role for the foreseeable future. We got another hint at their budding relationship in Wonder Woman as well, which was bookended by Bruce sending Diana the lost picture of her first love, Steve Trevor (Chris Pine), during her stint fighting in World War I. But can Ben Affleck beat out the best Chris?

The fierce women of Themyscira are much more covered up with armor in Wonder Woman than in Justice League, fan site The Golden Lasso points out in an article posted over the weekend. However, unlike previous attempts to exit the DCEU, the actor is now reportedly looking for a "graceful and cool way to segue out of it". But, there is an interesting twist to that story. When recently asked by Extra TV if he'll be around for five movies, he offered a less than encouraging, "I don't know about that. we'll see what the future holds".

Affleck was initially in line to direct The Batman, before deciding to step down in order to focus on his performance. In fact, when Reeves jumped on board, he made it clear that he had a different vision for the film and would give it a new script.

For now, it looks like moviegoers will have to wait and see what goes down with the costumes (or lack thereof) when Justice League opens in theaters November 17.
