Ben Affleck criticised for sexual harassment joke

'The Batman' Director Rumored to Want Jake Gyllenhaal if Ben Affleck Exits

While you can't say for sure what misguided point Affleck was trying to make, he seems to be referring to the numerous counts of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct that have come to light in recent weeks. Despite Affleck's impassioned declarations of love for playing Batman while on stage at San Diego Comic Con 2017, there's been growing evidence that the actor will soon be walking away from the role.

Matt Reeves recently replaced Affleck as the director of The Batman, signifying that Affleck would step down as the character as well.

Ben Affleck stars in Justice League, a Zack Snyder directorial, released today.

Affleck was initially in line to direct The Batman, before deciding to step down in order to focus on his performance, reported ANI. Before DC's Extended Universe took birth, Christopher Nolan had directed the uber-successful Dark Knight trilogy starring Christian Bale in the titular role.

Jake Gyllenhall is rumoured to replace Ben Affleck as Batman.

Ben Affleck to be replaced as Batman by director Matt Reeves?

We will see how people react to this choice and how much people are attached to Ben Affleck but what we do know is that Jake Gyllenhaal has not been locked down for the role yet. It definitely helps that Gyllenhaal has been an actor on fans Batman wish-lists for quite some time.

His "Justice League" costars had uncomfortable reactions to the jokes.

Isn't Jake Gyllenhaal obviously younger than Ben Affleck, though?

Still, there is a possibility that Affleck will return as Bruce Wayne in "The Batman" and maybe pass his cape down to another character.

My first thought is what Gyllenhaal would be able to bring to the role, and I think he'd actually be a far better Batman now than he would have been in the Batman Begins era. While it may be fun to get the scoop, accuracy counts, and right now the most accurate assessment of Warner Bros.' plans for the DCEU is that they're waiting to see how Justice League performs.
