The Batfleck will NOT be a part of The Batman, as Affleck will reportedly be “passing the Bat-torch” to the next generation of caped crusader.

The Batman will release on June 25th 2021.

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always).
