By now, Ben Affleck knows a stinker when he smells one.

We sensed some trouble brewing in Gotham City last month when the multi-hyphenate stepped down from directing the upcoming solo Batman movie — supposedly so he could focus all his energy on playing the superhero.

But now it looks like Warner Bros. might need some saving, as new rumors are claiming Ben doesn't even want to be Batman anymore!

Before the Argo filmmaker bowed out of directing the Batman v Superman followup, he was making some distressing claims in interviews — saying there wasn't a script yet and that the project wasn't even a "sure thing"!

And according to insiders, the 44-year-old's apathetic responses are due to the fact that he wants to get out of playing the Caped Crusader altogether.

In the latest episode of YouTube's Collider Movie Talk, host John Campea explained he had spoken to three separate sources connected to the hot mess at WB, who all said Batfleck wants to hang up his cape for good.

Batfleck won't be saving the DC Comics franchise after all — at least not from behind the camera!

Ben Affleck has decided to step down as director of The Batman and stay on as a producer and star of the upcoming installment.

Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara announced at last year's CinemaCon that the Argo director would be helming the next Batman sequel, which the actor also co-wrote the script for.

But it looks like the 44-year-old isn't the director Gotham deserves, OR the one it needs right now — because he said he'd rather just focus his talents on playing the Caped Crusader!

According to sources, the actor and studio came to the decision together after discussing how to make the best film possible.

Ben said in a statement to Variety:

So much star power on one subway train! We don't know who to look at!

no title

A stroke of casting genius?

Warner Bros. is still figuring out the recipe for success with its DC Comics properties, and Ben Affleck seems to be their hero (not one the studio deserves, but the one it needs right now) with his solo Batman movie.

Things got more interesting when Affleck — who is writing and directing, in addition to playing the leading role — revealed that the villain would be none other than Deathstroke!

Well, it looks like Batfleck called on some serious muscle to fill out Deathstroke's armor… because Joe Manganiello has officially been cast to play the deadly super-assassin!!

According to The Wall Street Journal, DC Films head Geoff Johns confirmed the True Blood star was tapped to play the role on Thursday — though wouldn't say whether the character would show up in

no title]

The next big superhero flick is finally here with Warner Bros. Suicide Squad and it's already being met with extreme criticism and now it might not make it to China!

But Suicide Squad isn't the only movie to get banned for a ridiculous reason — Shrek 2 and Back to the Future were both banned in other countries too! In fact…

Unfortunately, this doesn't bode too well for the DCEU as Batman v Superman, despite a big opening weekend, was generally panned and underperformed at the box office overall as a result!

Some fans are doing their best to help protect their favorite anti-heroes and villains by starting a petition on Change.org.

The man who started it, Abdullah Coldwater of Alexandria, Egypt must have his head in the clouds because the petition aims to shut down review aggregating site RottenTomatoes entirely, claiming:
