Casey Affleck Says He Doesn't Think His Brother Ben Will Star In THE BATMAN After All

Despite Ben Affleck seemingly reassuring fans at SDCC that he would be staying on as The Batman, his brother Casey now says he doesn't think Ben will be returning as The Dark Knight after Justice League...

We recently reported on a rumor that Ben Affleck might be hanging up the cape 'n cowl after Justice League, and his brother Casey has now added a significant amount of fuel to the fire.

Although Ben did seemingly confirm (or at least, suggest) that there was no truth to the rumor a couple of weeks ago at SDCC, Casey was a guest on WEEI’s sports radio show today and sang a slightly different tune.

When asked outright if his brother would return for the planned solo Batman flick, Affleck replied, "he’s not gonna do that movie, I don’t think.” However, when told that this might be considered breaking news, he did imply that he might be joking.
