I still want to see Affleck's Batman movie, but I'd be very happy with cutting Leto's Joker. I like Leto as an actor but thought his Joker was horrendous. My biggest takeaway from Suicide Squad (which I enjoyed even though I didn't think it was "good") was "I don't want that Joker anywhere near the new Batman." It was the very first thing I said when leaving the theater.
According to that article, which was basically a rumor, Leto and Affleck may be out, but for just this Batman series. That would be a horrible mistake.
edit: I just read that Affleck wants out of DCU bad and that will force their hand. I just think it will be bad to have Affleck Batman in Justice League with a standalone Batman to be completely different, but they may not have a choice.
