Fans have taken to social media to urge Warner Bros. Discovery to bring back Ben Affleck as Batman.

Spreading the hashtag #MakeTheBatfleckMovie, admirers of Affleck shared their thoughts on his performance as the Caped Crusader and the reasons why the scrapped solo Batman film needs to be revived. Fans reminded social media that Affleck’s plans for the solo movie, which he was also set to direct, initially included appearances from Joe Manganiello as Slade Wilson, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon and Jeremy Irons as Alfred.

The calls for Batfleck’s return follows the premiere of Justice League: The Snyder Cut, which was essentially released by Warner Bros. after years of petitioning from fans. Now that they have some momentum to urge the studio to go down a certain direction with its DCEU projects, they’re pushing the envelope with #MakeTheBatfleckMovie and #RestoreTheSnyderVerse. If Warner Bros. Discovery eventually succumbs to the mounting pressure from fans, however, it could take a little while longer.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Quentin Tarantino doubled down on retiring after his 10th film.
