I bet it will have some kind of impact. At the very least, Affleck's chances in being in a future Batman film are hanging by the wire now. On top of his divorce and alcoholism amongst other personal problems, he's damaged goods to be playing the lynchpin of the DCEU franchise now. I smell a recast in the future. As for Justice League, I can't not see one of the main stars being accused of harassing women not having a negative impact on the press tours of the cast for Justice League. The timing couldn't be worse for the movie's PR.

Y'all better start apologizing to that girl you bumped into in elementary school. She'll be coming for you. On topic, nah I don't think it will effect the movie much. The world is a lot bigger than social media.

@lukehero: my point is that not everyone will feel the same towards it so it'll hurt JL but not that much.

It will probably not affect the movie. I believe that those social media scandals won't affect a blockbuster like Justice League, even though Ben is one of the main stars. And to be frankly, those scandals happen all the time and they're usually forgotten in a month or two, so I doubt it will have a lasting impact or have any big impact on JL.

I want him gone, period.

All he's done so far is

Walk away from directing the Batman film.

Had his screenplay for said film get tossed aside.

Star in a crtically panned and financially underperforming film.

On a personal level

His last directorial work bombed spectacularly.

He's having trouble with his divorce/kids/affairs/gambling/drinking

His brother is accussed of sexual harrasment.

Now this.

This man is a serious liability to the franchise. Everything he had going for him back in 2013 has fizzled out. Fanboys will still get their precious fight scenes and grey suit with fake abs anyway. His acting was serviceable and the writing for his character was terrible. I'm surprised at fans dreading his departure, screw this guy.

I have a better idea..........LET'S REBOOT THE ENTIRE DCEU!!!

I'll say a 3-5% drop in box office by the time it comes out. Its going to keep getting talked about because there's kind of consistent history of it with Ben and his brother. WB will prob be telling Ben to keep as low a profile as possible until the movie is released.

Yes, it´s pretty crappy to grab a woman´s boob if she doesn´t want to, but that´s it, he didn´t really made something horrible that needs punishing or anything like that, apart from that, the other instance with Losique she already said it was all part of the show and that he was very respectful off-camera, and the make up artist is probably just claiming that to get some spotlight, regular people love to use celebrities and create scandals out of nowhere to get attention.

I mean, Ben Affleck doesn´t seem like the type of guy who goes around stalking women, ffs he doesn´t need to, he probably could get laid with anyone he wants, so I´d take these claims with a grain of salt.

I doubt it remind you Christian balr assault both his mother & sister caught flak for it but still continued his role as batman.

No, it wont.

And no, he shouldn't have remained quiet, that's evident now when the Knights of the Internet are asking why everyone who's had any kind of relationship with Weinstein have not distanced themselves from him by now. The Clintons have caught flack, as have the Obama's... Matt Damon is still in the hot-tub because he didn't mention Weinstein by name in his condemnation. Where it gets odd however is Ben's apology to someone he himself groped on the red carpet not that long ago.

All that said, I don't think it will impact the movie, people will still want to see Justice League, and Ben is not so embroiled in controversy people are calling for his head. And even if everything somehow explodes, like it did with Mel Gipson, it will only be a matter of years before he slowly comes back.

What happened with Mel Gibson and Christian Bale ?? Never heard any screwed things about them.

@thor_parker82: Really???

Mel Gibson’s drunken rants to his girlfriend how a group of n words were gonna rape her? And his rants against Jews?

Bale antics didn’t get that much hype. He had that Terminator Salvation rant, but the crew memeber really did screw up. Clearly the video/audio leaked because someone didn’t like getting yelled at...

Gibson was blackedballed for a good while then came back...

Mel Gibson told his girlfriend some nigg@s where going to rape her ?? Damn, that´s mean, was her girlfriend an actress or a regular girl ?? What did he say to jews ??

I didn´t know the scandals about Bale, what did he do to his mother and sister ??

I wasn´t that much into researching all of Hollywood´s world until about 2014 which is when my interest on that whole world sparked, so I´m sure there are a lot of "popular" rumours I have never heard about.

@thor_parker82: You really never heard about any of the stuff with Gibson? You must be pretty young then. Basically he believes Jews control Hollywood and some other things(which granted to some degree is true) but which saying will get you blackballed. He got pulled over by police while driving drunk and made some comments about Jews and then had a gf who he left all sorts of nasty messages to on her voicemail which she released to the media. So he basically got blackballed for about 5-6 years.

@indomitableregal said:

@lukehero Won't hurt him or JL at all tbh. He apologized to Burton, there really isn't any evidence of the Golden Globe incident, and as creepy as the Montreal interview looked, the host herself said it was completely out of context. Plus, America has trouble concentrating on too many scandals at once and right now, it's either gun control, NFL kneeling, or Weinstein. Miscellaneous Trump news covers everything else. There isn't much room left for Affleck.

I think the current scandal is 'sexual abuse in Hollywood' and Affleck is part of it now. Its Weinstein on tier 1 with others like Ben on tier 2. WB may end up having to cut him loose to stay ahead of the pr curve.

It really depends on where it goes from here I think. I don't think he is on the best terms with WB or the new director already. It wouldn't take much for them to mutually decide to walk away from each other. Unless JL is just a smash hit and then WB likely says **** it, he's our guy.

@entropy_aegis: Over dramatic

Um no, his life is a wreck both personally and professionally, overdramatic are DCEU fans who think he cant be replaced because of his fake abs and fight scenes.

Batman's brand endured Joel Schumacher and actors of the high caliber such as Keaton and Bale has worked with him and moved on. Affleck is nothing and his loss will mean nothing, WB already has a new director and is working on a new script for the Batman film. They can afford to ditch this massive liability who is polarizing amongst fans to begin with.

Not a Batfleck fan but it look like just another c lister trying to have 20 minute of fame.

It going to have some effect probably not much though, WB will be milking on Wonder Woman even more from now on.
