An Unknown Representative Says Ben Affleck Is Still On For The Batman

Recently Casey Affleck, brother of Batman actor Ben Affleck, accidentally told a radio show that Ben wouldn't be appearing as the title character in The Batman, completing the world's worst Triple Crown as Ben would have dropped out from directing, writing, and starring the film, a long standing Outhouse theory.

"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's PR team backtracked his statements, saying the actor was joking and not speaking from a place of firsthand knowledge. An unknown representative of Ben's told Buzzfeed that the actor will continue as Batman, which is only slightly more reputable than "news" posted on Bleeding Cool.

At this point, we'll have to wait until the release of The Batman to see if Ben is still in the film. The Batman is directed by Matt Reeves, and no release date or plot details have been revealed.
