American actor Ryan Potter recently decided to tweet his followers. The 20-year-old tweeted to Ben Affleck on Monday, saying, “Asian American Tim Drake adds diversity to Justice League cast.”
While the tweet continues to go viral in forums like Reddit, Ben Affleck still hasn’t replied to the tweet. Ryan Potter decided to send another tweet, saying, “Tim Drake has a real nice ring to it.” Check out the tweets below.
In DC Comics, Tim Drake is the third Robin who puts on the cape after the death of Jason Todd. Furthermore, Tim is also considered the perfect Robin by Batman himself in the comics.
Ryan Potter is known for voicing Hiro Hamada in the animated film Big Hero 6. The actor currently has no ongoing projects since his last appearance in TV series Lab Rats.

It has been rumored that Affleck’s untitled Batman film will be released in 2018. However, Warner Bros still hasn’t revealed the release dates.
Ben Affleck has currently put his movie schedule on hold as he flew back to LA. Reports revealed that he is taking care of his kids. The Batman movie is still in its scripting stage. Geoff Johns is helping the Oscar winner in the process.
