(the real reason)
We all love Ben Affleck’s Batman aka Batfleck but now Ben reveals why he quit from the DCEU forever.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Ben said that he only wanted to play roles and do work that made him happy.
This all points out to the terrible Justice League film as it not only flopped on the box office but also disturbed many actors who were involved.
Affleck said, “I had a really nadir experience around Justice League for a lot of different reasons. Not blaming anybody, there's a lot of things that happened. But really what it was is that I wasn't happy. I didn't like being there.”
He added, “I didn't think it was interesting. And then some really shitty things, awful things happened. But, that's when I was like, 'I'm not going to do that anymore.”
Affleck also said, “In fact, I talked to Matt Damon about it and he was a principal influence on that decision. I want to do the things that would bring me joy.”
Ben Affleck shared that doing The Last Duel with Matt Damon was so much fun even though he wasn't the star of the movie, and it was a wonderful experience.
He also said he now lives in fear with each new movie that he won't feel happy again because the feeling is elusive but for the moment, he is happy.
Affleck's reprisal of the role in The Flash will put a really nice finish on his experience with that character but it is really sad to see one of the best live action Bruce Wayne leave this early.
Do you think Ben should have sticked around?
