This is amidst all the speculation that Ben Affleck, the present caped crusader will not have a role in the movie. This could be partly due to the reports about Ben’s health issues, especially since there have been no reports from Warner Bros either confirming or dismissing the same. Ben has been grappling with addiction to alcohol and has been in rehab recently, which incidentally was also the topic of one of his statements.

He wrote in his statement that he finished a stint of forty days at a centre for alcohol addiction and that he was treated as an outpatient. He thanked his family and his friends for the support that they had shown him. He went to say that he was very much indebted to his fans for the support that they had shown towards him when he battled with addiction and this gave him the strength to talk about his weakness and his problems with others. There were earlier rumors doing the rounds that Ben was writing the script for the next sequel of Batman and that he would also be starring apart from directing the flick. However, due to the possible poor showing of Live By Night the decision may have been changed.
