Is Matt Reeves set to boot out Ben Affleck as Batman?

Ben Affleck jokes about sexual harassment in Hollywood in uncomfortable interview

Affleck has been accused of joking about sexual harassment

Earlier this week, John Campea shared in his YouTube series, "The John Campea Show", that "The Batman" director Matt Reeves supposedly already found the ideal actor who could replace Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader of DC Extended Universe.

News of Reeves meeting with potential Batman actors doesn't bode well for Affleck's future in the role.

Jake Gyllenhaal has also hesitated to be part of franchises in the past and when he was rumored to be associated with Marvel he quickly shot down the rumor.

The actor's been flip-flopping between staying and leaving the DCEU for the longest time now, and probably assuming the worst, rumor started spreading yesterday that The Batman director Matt Reeves already had a replacement in mind.

The news comes from John Campea on his YouTube show, hot on the heels after he brought the latest news about Affleck leaving. Things are in the very early stages right now. His name has been supposedly floated as a candidate, but there's no guarantee that he'll sign on or that Warner Bros would pick him. Chris O'Donnell eventually portrayed Dick Grayson alongside Val Kilmer in Batman Forever, and returned opposite George Clooney in Batman & Robin.

For many families in southwestern OR , venturing out onto public lands to cut a Christmas tree is an annual holiday tradition. JD Milburn, from the Downtown Development Corporation, expects at least 10 floats to be featured in the parade.

Gyllenhaal auditioned for the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman when casting began for Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, but ultimately lost out to Christian Bale. Jake Gyllenhaal would certainly be a big score for the DCEU, as he's proven with Nightcrawler that he can work well with dark material. His sister Maggie Gyllenhaal later appeared in its sequel, The Dark Knight.

If someone tells you that an actor is set for The Batman, that information is false.

As for Ben Affleck, he's at least had a decent run playing Batman, starring in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, as well as cameoing in Suicide Squad.

According to the report, Ben Affleck is stepping down because of his widely criticised performance in Justice League.
