THE BATMAN: #MakeTheBatfleckMovie Trends On Twitter As Fans Once Again Make Their Voices Heard

Ben Affleck was once set to direct and star in The Batman, but that didn't happen for a multitude of reasons. Now, fans of the actor's take on the Caped Crusader have got #MakeTheBatfleckMovie to trend...

Once upon a time, Ben Affleck was supposed to direct and star in The Batman. He penned the screenplay with comic book writer Geoff Johns, but issues in his personal life - and possibly his experience working on Joss Whedon's Justice League reshoots - meant the actor and filmmaker walked away from the project.

Since then, he's reprised the role of the Dark Knight in Zack Snyder's Justice League and is set to return as Bruce Wayne (possibly for a farewell to the character) in The Flash next year. 

Fans are determined to see Ben Affleck's The Batman become a reality, and made their voices heard on social media over the weekend by getting #MakeTheBatfleckMovie to trend globally. The hope is that WarnerMedia will take note and make it a reality, and it joins the #RestoreTheSnyderVerse and #DeathstrokeHBOMax campaigns which have generated such enthusiasm online. 

Affleck's The Batman was set to feature Deathstroke dismantling the Caped Crusader's life, with the final act set to feature Bruce Wayne teaming with Batgirl to square off with Slade Wilson in Gotham City.

Warner Bros. is looking to move on from the "SnyderVerse," so chances are they won't pay much attention to this.

Stranger things have happened, though...
