One big question that Ben Affleck was clearly going to face at the Justice League panel during 2017 Comic-Conwas about the rumors he’s leaving the role of Batman.
Earlier this week, a report surfaced that Warner Bros. is setting the stage for a new actor to play the caped crusader.
“Let me be very clear,” Ben said on the panel (via THR). “I am the luckiest guy in the world. Batman is the coolest part in the universe. I’m so thrilled to do it. It’s f–king amazing.”
Ben also addressed the upcoming The Batman standalone movie being developed by War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves. Ben was originally slated to write and direct the film, but dropped out of those roles.
“I would be an ape on the ground for Matt Reeves!” he said.
