Affleck responded to those rumors today at SDCC's Warner Bros. That report also came after news that the new director, War of the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves, chose to ditch the script Affleck and DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns wrote together. "We want to keep him in the cowl as long as we can".

Ben Affleck revealed in a profanity-laced speech at Comic-Con on Saturday that he will continue as Batman in the upcoming "The Batman" film. I know there's this misconception that because I'm not directing it, that maybe I wasn't enthusiastic about it.

Doom's 6.66 update makes all DLC free
The excitement dampens a bit though when you realize the only Doom DLC released was for the aforementioned multiplayer mode. Yes, the multiplayer DLC is now bundled into the core Doom game for free, producing the definitive Doom experience.

"Batman is the coolest fucking part in any universe", Affleck told an audience gathered in HalI for Warner Bros. panel at San Diego Comic-COn. "And I think you'll see why I'm so excited to be Batman". There is no release date yet for The Batman.

Matt Reeves is now in the process of gathering a writing team - rumored to include his Apes collaborator, to start The Batman from scratch, but it appears Affleck will be along for the ride.

Democrats rejected the suggestion as another tactic by Republicans supporting White House objections to the bill. There's also another issue lingering over the bill in the House that could lead to changes to the measure.

The news comes just after The Hollywood Reporter published a piece hinting that Affleck might be out as the superhero while Warner Bros. studio considers a shift in direction.

Throughout the event, Affleck looked happy and relaxed - laughing off rumors that he was being "phased out" as the Caped Crusader and even dropping a few f-bombs.

Steven Hansen stops short of criticising Poite
People that are running the game need to ask themselves do we need to make it simpler. It was worth asking the question.

The actor's performance as Batman has received mixed reviews, especially after the flop of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", which received a low 27 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. He plays Batman again in Justice League, which opens in November.
