Deadpool 2 star Lewis Tan expressed his gratitude to fans suggesting he replace Ben Affleck as Batman.
On Wednesday night, Ben Affleck officially announced he will not reprise his role as the Caped Crusader in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and fans already have more than few suggestions on who could replace him as the Dark Knight. Lewis Tan (who played Shatterstar in Deadpool 2 and was incorrectly rumored to be playing Batman in DC Universe’s Titans) has been a popular choice among fans and the actor took to his official Twitter account to thank those who are voicing their support for him donning the cape and cowl.

Plot details for Matt Reeves’ upcoming film are currently under wraps, though the film will center around a younger Caped Crusader and includes multiple villains. Matt Reeves also confirmed that it will not be directly based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic and will make full use of the Dark Knight’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous films.
The Batman will be released in theaters on June 25, 2021.
The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.
Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
Here are the 9 theatrical superhero films of 2018, ranked from worst to best. You can start the gallery by clicking “Next.”
