Fears Assuaged, Ben Affleck Will Still Direct 'The Batman'

Fears Assuaged, Ben Affleck Will Still Direct 'The Batman'

He kicked off 2016 with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, filmed Justice League, released The Accountant, and is moving into 2017 with his new movie, Live By Night (which he directed, wrote, and starred in).

I'm getting the impression that Ben Affleck is exhausted of people asking him about that solo Batman movie that he may or may not be doing. It's just that nobody gave a sh*t, no one was like 'Where's Live by Night?' But with Batman I keep on getting 'Where's the f-ing Batman!' Woah, I'm working! Nobody was like, 'Where's Live by Night? "Give me a second!'", Affleck said.

Affleck has been working on the script for The Batman with DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns.

Live By Night starring Chris Cooper, Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, and Zoe Saldana alongside Affleck and Miller hits theatres on 13 January.

Ben Affleck just dropped the mic. This makes it impossible for the film to achieve its goal, as a grand epic and a great American story, because you need a grand character for that and a great American performance. "Especially in the New 52, the way that they did Deathstroke, and I thought that it could work". Ever since he was cast as Bruce Wayne for "Batman v Superman" back in August 2013 there has been speculation that he would oversee his own solo film, something that Affleck freely admitted was the plan.

"I think we're all a little scared and we're going to take deep breaths". We all want to see Batman done well, but it looks like we're also willing to see Batman done poorly, so long as it's Batman. During the interview, Ben said he listens to a whole lot of Taylor Swift songs because of his daughter, adding, "Taylor Swift is great, by the way, she's a great role model".

The writer states that a trusted source has said filming on The Batman, which was reportedly due to begin this spring, has been moved back to the summer.

Ben Affleck (as Joe Coughlin): "You know what happens if you don't help me".

"It was all about the filling-out of this massive movie comic-book pantheon with the biggest and coolest heroes we could", Justice League director Zack Snyder told USA Today.
