Yesterday saw a rumor hit the net stating Ben Affleck would no longer be playing Batman following the Justice League movie.

However, now with the release of the new Justice League trailer at Comic-Con, Ben Affleck has shot down the rumor.

In the video below from the Comic-Con panel, Affleck says," Let me be very clear. Batman is the coolest part in any f'n universe, DC, Marvel. It's incredible. I'm so thrilled to do it. I know there is a misconception because I wasn't directing that I wasn't enthusiastic, it's f'n amazing. I still can't believe it after two films to have this history with this great studio. Kevin Tsujihara and Sue Kroll and Toby Emerich said to me, 'We want you to be our Batman' and I believe them. Matt Reeves doing it, it's like 'I would be a f'n ape on the ground for Matt Reeves.' Nevermind being Batman, It's incredible. So I'm really blown away and excited, and it's a great time in the DC universe. You are going to see some stuff from Justice League that we're really, really proud of. I think you'll see why I'm so excited to be Batman."

Ezra Miller then added, "Don't believe the hype, people. Don't believe the hype."

Ben Affleck next appears as Batman in November's Justice League.
