Fans were disappointed upon learning that Ben Affleck won't be playing Batman anymore in the DCEU. But maybe not as disappointed as they were when Christian Bale hung up the cape wrapping up Nolan's trilogy. Maybe not even as disappointed as they were when it was announced Ben will take on the role. But disappointed for sure. The decision comes out of the fact that the new DC movie, The Batman, will focus on the story of a younger Bruce Wayne. Which Ben isn't, of course. But the main news we want to share is that Nick Jonas is eager to play the new Batman. He said it himself.

In an Instagram post by Hypebeast, the publication asked, “@benaffleck will be hanging up his role as Batman. The upcoming Matt Reeves-directed ‘The Batman’ focuses on a younger Bruce Wayne, and will reportedly be casting a new member for the role. It’s slated for a June 25, 2021 release.
