Ben Affleck is stepping away from “The Batman,” making way for a new star to don the Batsuit in director Matt Reeves’ solo superhero movie (hits theaters June 25, 2021).
Warner Bros. has given no casting indication other than saying that the Bat-Signal is out for an actor to play a younger billionaire Bruce Wayne. Who should get the call for the most coveted role in Hollywood?
Hollywood agents are working the phones right now with hopefuls who can shake up the franchise and join the ranks of Affleck, Christian Bale, George Clooney, Val Kilmer and Michael Keaton. We have some thoughts.
Michael B. Jordan: A no-brainer to bring in the man who brought the menace to Erik Killmonger in “Black Panther.” Jordan, 31, has shown how he can buff up, hitting beast mode as Adonis Johnson in “Creed II.” No one would scowl better in the cowl.
