Frankly, this is a good move by Affleck. All he’d get asked is whether or not he’s going to continue playing Batman. It would a be a no-win situation. There’s no way he can say he’s not playing Batman, so if he’s done (as it so seems), then he’ll get painted as a liar. If he said he’s done, then he’d likely get booed off the stage.
Ben, smile for the pictures, sign the autographs, take your check and go home.
