After donning the Dark Knight’s cape in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and Justice League, Affleck is retiring from the role.
Deadline broke the news yesterday (January 30), which Affleck then confirmed on Twitter.
Sharing the entertainment website’s article, Affleck tweeted:

Reeves is best known for directing horror film Cloverfield, the remake Let Me In and the last two films of the recent Planet of the Apes trilogy, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes.
He is set to write, direct and produce The Batman, which will introduce a new caped crusader to Gotham.
After showing off her hanging upside down skills in the most recent episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, I think Stephanie Beatriz would be a good fit for the role. SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
