The Outhouse first broke the theory in February.

The Outhouse posited a theory in February that Ben Affleck was doing his damnedest to get out of anything to do with The Batman, after he stepped down from directorial duties and new directer Matt Reeves dropped Affleck's script. Now Ben's brother Casey Affleck let slip that he wouldn't be returning for The Batman.

"I thought he was an OK Batman," Casey said. "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 [The Batman], I don't think. Sorry to say."

Casey then tried to take back what he said.

"Is that breaking news? Because I was just kind of making that up, I don't know," he said.

At San Diego Comic Con, Affleck said that he wouldn't be exiting the role, but after his brother's statement, it looks like it's possible.
