It sounds like Ben Affleck won't be Batman much longer

It sounds like Ben Affleck won't be Batman much longer

Wonder Woman has become the highest-grossing superhero origin movie of all time, and even though that movie has become a cultural touchstone for a generation of women, Warner Bros. and DC Films still have lots of work to do if they want audiences to forget the bad taste that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad left in their mouths. Very curious to see how this one turns out. And I hope and pray that the film is as good as all the promotions, posters and pictures we're getting for Justice League.

A new report by the Wall Street Journal has it that the total production budget for Justice League is close to $300 million, and that Joss Whedon's reshoots were far more significant than first thought.

Ben Affleck is seeming rather uncertain about his future in the role of Batman. You see the comradery of this group.

As we get closer and closer to the opening of Justice League on November 17, the man (currently) behind Bruce Wayne is still hedging his bets when it comes to questions about his future in the cape and cowl.

Asked by guest presenter Ore Oduba - who was stepping in for Steve Wright - on BBC Radio 2 on Monday (06.11.17) afternoon, what the difference between DC and Marvel Comics is, he explained: "I don't really know".

"I think the rivalry lives in the fans more so than it does in us", Cavill explained. I mean, I'm sure when it comes to deep finances, when it comes to DC and Marvel there's always going to be competition, yeah, but they need each other to survive as well. "It was fun to show some other colors, for sure". "We'll see what the future holds".

If the $300 million figure is correct, then Justice League is tied with Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End as the second-most expensive film ever made.
