Over the past few months we’ve been hearing rumours that Warner Bros is looking out for a new Batman. Actors like Kit Harrington, Jake Gyllenhaal and Jack Huston are reportedly the frontrunners to be the new Batman in the DC’s Extended Universe. However, these new photos of the current Batman actor Ben Affleck seem like he’s not ready to give up the cape just yet. The actor was in rehab recently and he has been focusing on bringing his body to shape.
In photos, Ben looks fit and beefed up as he steps out to attend a basketball scrimmage in Los Angeles. The actor looks like he’s ready to reprise his Cape Crusader role. He was seen wearing a white T-shirt and a pair of olive green pants with his black sweatshirt flung on one side of his shoulder as he flaunted his new physic. Ben wore a pair of brown shoes for his day out. He was also sporting a new salt-and-pepper short haircut and properly trimmed beard. The paparazzi caught with holding a large cold drink while he made his way out.

The actor was recently spotted leaving the WB office after he completed his stint at the rehab. This has left many to speculate that he is indeed ready to return as the Batman. The actor’s visit comes soon after The Batman director Matt Reeves submitted his script for the solo Cape Crusader movie.
Fans will have to wait and watch if the actor returns as the Batman or not, but his hard work at the rehab has definitely paid off! The actor was admitted in a luxury rehab facility in Malibu a few weeks ago after his drinking escalated. The actor’s ex-wife Jennifer Garner had to intervene into his addiction. She hosted an intervention after which she drove him to the facility for treatment.
Following his stint at the rehab, Ben was seen with Jen heading to the church with their three children, Violet and Seraphina and Samuel. A source recently told People that the actor is trying hard to get better.

“He is doing much better but needs to continue receiving care. As difficult as it was to have his recent trip to rehab all play out so publicly, it now seems the way it happened was for the best. Ben seems to take this rehab visit more seriously. This time is different. He doesn’t want his kids to have to go through this again. Ben is really trying very hard to get better. He is taking things day by day, but it seems he plans on staying at the treatment center for at least a couple of more weeks,” the insider shared.
