Batman/Superman writer Tom Taylor teased the death of DC villain Darkseid in a social media post.
After comic book writer Tom Taylor teased a new DC project on social media using the hashtag “DCEASED,” fans began speculating on which character could potentially meet their demise. Now, Taylor has shared a new post on his official Twitter account that includes a caption and photo with text reading “Darkseid was,” revealing the New God and ruler of Apokolips will be killed in an upcoming DC project. The phrase “Darkseid was” is an inversion of the villan’s classic mantra “Darkseid is,” which asserts the New God exists as the essence of evil personified.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
