It’s Batman Day, and Justice League director Zack Snyder took time out of his day to celebrate on the mobile app Vero. Over the app, the Justice League director posted a short message to show his Batman love today. Snyder posted a photo of Ben Affleck dressed as Batman from the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The simple photo was accompanied by a caption which reads, “Happy Batman day[.] Batfleck ia [sic] the best Batman ever.”
Since Suicide Squad, Affleck’s future in the DCEU has been in doubt. There have been reports and rumours regarding the DCEU and Affleck. Initially, Affleck was set to write, direct and star in The Batman solo film. Due to personal reasons, he has since stepped aside as both writer and director, which was followed by rumors that Affleck will be stepping away from the Batsuit completely. However, the dust has finally settled, with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves stepping in. Reeves will be working on penning and helming the solo Batman outing, while Affleck has promised that he will be playing Gotham City’s favorite vigilante. At San Diego Comic-Con, Affleck responded to rumors of his leaving by voicing his excitement about playing Batman in Reeves’ film.
Justice League has a November 17, 2017 release directed by Zack Snyder, with the story by Chris Terrio and Zack Snyder, the screenplay by Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon, and stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon and Willem Dafoe an Atlantean, Nuidis Vulko.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
