    But now it looks like, that Ben Affleck could even leave the DC franchise along with starring in Batman movie altogether.

    According to Forbes' Mark Hughes who jotted down an in-depth piece about Ben Affleck's departure, feels that Ben Affleck could take the call anytime soon.

    "Unfortunately, among the things I heard about his departure as director, I heard a few specifics that - if true - lead me to worry there is at least a chance Affleck could also walk away from starring in the picture." Said Hughes

    "I don't feel those concerns are as likely to bear fruit, and I still expect Affleck will finish the screenplay as planned and then start prepping for the role by getting into "Batman shape" to ensure he's physically and mentally prepared for the role." He added.

    "That said, I do believe there's a chance now that Affleck could depart the project as an actor, winding up merely serving as cowriter and producer." Concluded Hughes.
