Ever since Matt Reeves replaced Ben Affleck as director of The Batman, reports and rumors have persisted about the actor’s impending departure from the DCEU — fueled, in part, by Affleck himself, who recently said that he’s looking for a “cool way to segue out” of the franchise.

When actors transform for a role, we take notice (and most of the time, so does that little golden statue named Oscar).
