But hearing Affleck talk about the role, it sounds more and more like he's ready to hang up the cowl. Speaking with USA Today, Affleck made yet another comment suggesting he's not going to be patroling Gotham City for much longer. "You don't do it forever, so I want to find a graceful and cool way to segue out of it," Affleck said. This isn't the first time the actor has waffled on the subject of playing Batman. But his latest comments are the most explicit he's been about eventually leaving the Batcave behind. Affleck is no longer directing a stand-alone Batman film—Matt Reeves is currently overseeing that project—and DC's upcoming films don't necessarily have to involve Batman at all. (Seeing him in Gotham City Sirens opposite Margot Robbie would be incredible, though.) Affleck wouldn't be the first actor to leave Bruce Wayne behind, and he won't be the last. But his stepping aside could open up all sorts of possibilities to delve deeper into the Batman canon. Here are some possible Batmen that bring those stories to cinematic life.
