In an interview published by The New York Times via Deadline, Ben Affleck has revealed his true reasons on why he decided to leave The Batman and it all came down to alcohol. The two-time Oscar winner admitted that between his struggles with alcohol, his divorce from Jennifer Garner, and all the problems with the shoot on Justice League that he had to abandon the role of Bruce Wayne. “I showed somebody The Batman script,” Affleck told the Times. “They said, ‘I think the script is good. I also think you’ll drink yourself to death if you go through what you just went though again.” Affleck said he “drank relatively normally,” but then things got out-of-control. “I drank relatively normally for a long time. What happened was that I started drinking more and more when my marriage was falling apart,” he explained. “You’re trying to make yourself feel better with eating or drinking or sex or gambling or shopping or whatever,” the actor and director explained. “But that ends up making your life worse. Then you do more of it to make that discomfort go away. Then the real pain starts. It becomes a vicious cycle you can’t break. That’s at least what happened to me.” The 47-year old actor's marriage to Garner ended in 2018 and he played the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, and a cameo in Suicide Squad.
