Ben Affleck Left “Batman” Because Of His Drinking


Ben Affleckhas finally pulled the curtain back on what made him drop out of “The Batman” role. Affleck says it was the end of his marriage to Jennifer Garner that pushed him to drink more. That timeline also coincides with trouble that was reported during the shooting of “Justice League.” After showing a script of “The Batman” to a trusted friend, Affleck was told that the “script is good,” but doing the film might cause him to “drink (himself) to death if (he went) through all that again.” That’s when Affleck announced he’d be stepping down from the role of the caped crusader and director of “The Batman."
