Following an inappropriate reference to the character's fishnet tights by Good Will Hunting star Ben, Ray Fisher (who plays Cyborg), added: 'I think it would create a different dynamic'.

"You following the news at all?"

Warner Bros. may finally be ready to have mercy on Ben Affleck, releasing him from his cursed role as the disgruntled Bat of Gotham, according to a report by Collider's John Campea.

Which is such a shame really - fans have been loving Affleck's version of the Dark Knight, calling it one of the most comic book accurate versions to date.

It wasn't supposed to be like this, of course. Ben Affleck's bad week could get even worse, as rumours have emerged suggesting the saddest Batman ever could be dropped from his own movie before he gets a chance at portraying Batman the way he wants to. Batman, played by Affleck, is the crime fighting alter-ego of billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne.

Now, though, Affleck seems to be eyeing the door, trying to figure out how he can make a clean, "Argo"-esque escape from the DCEU".

The actor was being interviewed alongside his Justice League co-stars when he made the remark in response to a question asked by MTV UK's Sophie Boyden.

Rose McGowan, who was among the first actors to publicly come out against Weinstein in the New York Times story that set the ball rolling, called Affleck a "liar" on Twitter for claiming that he had no knowledge of Weinstein's behaviour. So far, "Justice League" is faring only somewhat better with critics - and it's entering a competitive holiday marketplace sandwiched by such Disney films as "Thor: Ragnarok" and (soon) "Coco" and "The Last Jedi". His Batman was angry and misguided in Batman v Superman, but at least there was something going on with him.

When Affleck was first cast as Batman, almost 100,000 people signed a Change.org petition asking DC to reconsider.
