In 2016 Ben Affleck made his debut as Batman in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), and in 2019 announced that he would be leaving the role. A year later, he revealed that when he worked as Batman, his alcohol problems and divorce affected him emotionally. However, now we are facing a version of the actor very changed for the better, and that could be noticed at the Venice Film Festival, where he appeared on the red carpet of the film The Last Duel – 69%, by Ridley Scott, accompanied by his girlfriend Jennifer Lopez, with whom he had already been in a relationship almost 20 years ago.

The images of Affleck arriving with López at the event have ignited social networks and the fans of both stars celebrate the love they publicly show. Although photographs of the two together had already been leaked, and the actress and singer had published a photograph on Instagram that left no doubt, with this appearance in public, kissing in front of the cameras, they show that they no longer want to hide their renewed courtship.
The youth that the couple radiates was also surprising, despite the fact that he is 49 years old and she is 52, they look very good. There’s no question why they became a trend on social media, overshadowing the film that was being released and drawing all the attention to the two of them.
Ben affleck and Jennifer Lopez they met in 2001 in the production of the comedy Gigli – 6%, in 2002 she left her husband, Cris Judd, and began a relationship with the actor; in November of that year they got engaged, and in 2004 they announced that they were ending, supposedly due to the pressure exerted by the tabloid media on them.

López, for his part, married singer Marc Anthony and after their divorce he went with the rapper Drake and with the former professional baseball player and businessman Alex Rodriguez.

The Haters of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, all good at home ??? Why does it bother you to see 2 happy people? If it took almost 20 to return and they look happy, as both have not seen each other in Years. If it seems like a circus, as easy as not entering the circus and avoiding it😉.

Hopefully this relationship is happy and does not end badly, and if they separate, that they continue to maintain a cordial relationship as they did in the past. Meanwhile, Affleck is enjoying a new stage in his career. On The last duelIn addition to acting as a co-writer, the actor works alongside his old friend Matt Damon and stars like Jodie Comer and Adam Driver. The film has had a mixed reception among critics, although at the moment most of the reviews are positive, but not by a very wide margin, which is not surprising, taking into account the works of Ridley scott in recent years.
Coming soon Ben affleckTo the joy of fans of his version of Batman, he will be in The Flash, the first solo film of the superhero played by Ezra Miller who made his debut in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice – 27% and who we saw a few months ago in Zack Snyder’s Justice League – 82%. Despite the fact that a year earlier Affleck had said that he would no longer play Batman, he had the opportunity to do so once again as a supporting character in the Andy Muschietti film.
DCEU fans still hope to see more of Batman in a solo series or movie, but so far there are only rumors about it, and even the rumors are contradictory, with some saying that The Flash it will be the final farewell of the character, to leave the free space to be filled by the new version played by Robert Pattinson.
