HBO Max Rumoured To Want Ben Affleck To Play Batman In A Jared Leto Joker Movie

Batman Justice League Snyder Cut Warner Bros

There are rumours that HBO Max is trying to get Ben Affleck to play Batman in an upcoming Joker movie also starring Jared Leto.

Honestly, I thought the DCEU movies were really well cast.

I loved seeing Ben Affleck play Batman, and I even thought Jared Leto was interesting casting for the Joker.

It was recently revealed by David Ayer that Warner Bros. Pictures ‘ripped out’ Leto’s performance as the Joker in Suicide Squad.

I can kind of believe that to be the case. It was reported that much of Joker’s footage was left on the cutting room floor.

That’s a shame, but it sounds like HBO Max might want to bring Leto and Ben Affleck back for a Batman and Joker movie.

This rumour comes from We Got This Covered’s sources, who claim that HBO Max is keen on the idea of getting the two stars back for a one-off movie.

There’s no news on what the movie would be called, but I would love it if they called it The Batman And The Joker, or just Batman & Joker.

It has a sense of nostalgia to it, and I like that.

I also love the idea of seeing the two of them together in the same movie again.

Ben Affleck’s Batman did have a run-in with the Joker in Suicide Squad, but it just wasn’t enough.

I really, really hope this rumour is true because I really do think it would work.
