    While Marvel is allegedly “cooking” with Ben Affleck behind the scenes, the community has started their conversation about which character will suit him. Some fans are saying that since the mutants are coming to the MCU, Affleck can play the role of the founder of “Friends Of Humanity,” Graydon Creed.

    In 2023, Ben Affleck while talking to The Hollywood Reporter revealed that he has no interest in superhero movies. He said, “I’m out. I never want to do any of this again. I’m not suited. I don’t want to participate in this in any way. And I don’t want to squander any more of my life, of which I have a limited amount.”
