Ben Affleck’s time as the famous DC Comics superhero, Batman, may have come to an end. According to reports, the actor, who recently returned to rehab for the third time after struggling with alcohol abuse, may no longer be playing the famed Bruce Wayne character in the Warner Bros. films that make up the DC extended universe (DCEU).
“More than likely the studio will replace him because the insurance costs are going to go through the roof,” a representative for a completion bond company told TheWrap.
The price of Affleck starring in the studio’s major box office hits such as Justice League could drive up the budget of the already pricey superhero franchise. Eventually, it could reach a price studio executives may not be willing to pay.
But the 46-year-old star is not the only one who was seen as a film liability while going through personal struggles.
