Ben Affleck explains he quit Batman over alcoholism
When Ben Affleck stepped away from his role as Batman, a lot of people thought he’d just got fed up with sub par DC movies. This might not be the case, as Affleck has opened up about that decision to the New York Times, and discussed a battle with alcohol addiction.
“I showed somebody The Batman script,” Affleck revealed. “They said, ‘I think the script is good. I also think you’ll drink yourself to death if you go through what you just went though again.” 
“I drank relatively normally for a long time. What happened was that I started drinking more and more when my marriage was falling apart… You’re trying to make yourself feel better with eating or drinking or sex or gambling or shopping or whatever,” he went on.  “But that ends up making your life worse. Then you do more of it to make that discomfort go away. Then the real pain starts. It becomes a vicious cycle you can’t break. That’s at least what happened to me.”
