Ben Affleck has stepped out of superhero franchise film, The Batman, as the story will now focus on a younger Bruce Wayne. The 46-year old actor is no longer part of Matt Reeves’ project, after playing Batman in Suicide Squad, Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.

While the film’s casting is being decided, American singer Nick Jonas has offered to play Batman in the film.

In an Instagram post shared by Hypebeast, the publication asked the audience, “@benaffleck will be hanging up his role as Batman. The upcoming Matt Reeves-directed ‘The Batman’ focuses on a younger Bruce Wayne, and will reportedly be casting a new member for the role. It’s slated for a June 25, 2021 release. Who do you think should play The Dark Knight?”

To this, 26-year-old singer Nick Jonas replied: “First name Nick. Last name Jonas.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Monday, Affleck tweeted an article about his exit from the upcoming film and wrote: “Excited for ‘The Batman’ in Summer 2021 and to see Matt Reeves’ vision come to life.”

After Affleck’s exit, a younger actor is expected to take on the mantle in Matt Reeves’ stand-alone film because it focuses on the early life of Batman.

The plot and casting details of the 2021 version of Batman are still under the wraps but Warner Bros have officially announced the release date, which is June 25, 2021.
