Ben Affleck doesn’t want to defend Gotham anymore.
The actor is already looking for ways to hang up Batman’s cape, just months after he told the San Diego ComicCon audience that he wasn’t going anywhere.
“You don’t do it forever, so I want to find a graceful and cool way to segue out of it,” he told USA Today.
Affleck, who’s doing press for “Justice League,” said he’s “contemplating” Matt Reeves’ solo Batman movie, for which he wrote the now-scrapped first script.

Of course, Affleck has been playing will-they-won’t-they with DC Comics for months.
The wording of Affleck’s tease is also suspect; in July, the Hollywood Reporter cited a source who said Warner Bros. was looking for a way to “gracefully” “usher out Affleck’s Batman.”
