So I’m hearing this is possibly a prequel. Let me tell you why that’s totally fine with me! It means Ben Affleck is NOT being recast. He would remain the Batman of the current timeline and can make cameos in any DCEU films. If matt tells a younger Batman story it will simply be a younger version of Ben Affleck. This would hold everything together. Things would all be connected. Another thing that just hit me... it would be insane and idk if it could happen. But if anyone saw the kind of cgi reeves used in apes movies... what If he used it on Ben and made him look younger... lots of possibilities. Still only rumors.
