Ben Affleck arrives at the premiere of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" in New York March 20, 2016. A Lego Batman Movie Easter egg in Siri (you know, the voice assistant in iPhones and other Apple devices) doesn't quite replicate the Batcomputer's near limitless power, but is good for a few laughs.
Ben Affleck is looking for a way out of being involved in the ongoing 'Batman' films, according to a well-connected United States journalist.
"There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions". Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give. "Together with the studio, I have chose to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film".
He also added that Affleck and the studio are now engaged in crunch talks.
Guests will be able to meet the star of the film in LEGO form at LEGOLAND theme parks and LEGOLAND Discovery Centers in 2017.
"I remain extremely committed to this project, and look forward to bringing this to life for fans around the world".
Host of Collider Movie Talk, John Campea, reignited speculation that all is not well at Wayne Manor earlier this week by quoting "three spirit people" from inside Warner Bros as saying Affleck wanted to quit the DC superheroes franchise. CEO Kevin Tsujihara last April. A lot of the film's emotional strength is reflected in its original songs, including the touching "I Found You", which features the cherubic Dick Grayson recounting the happiness he discovered in his adopted family.
