BREAKING | Ben Affleck No Longer Directing The Batman Movie
BREAKING – In a strange turn of events Ben Affleck has decided to step down as director of “The Batman.” He will remain on the project as a producer and star.
“There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions,” Affleck said in a statement. “Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give. It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require. Together with the studio, I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film. I am still in this, and we are making it, but we are currently looking for a director. I remain extremely committed to this project and look forward to bringing this to life for fans around the world.
There is currently no director behind the camera on the picture, so Affleck and Warner Bros. are searching for a new director to take the wheel. Personally, we would like to see a woman take the helm to add a new perspective to the caped crusader.
“Warner Bros. fully supports Ben Affleck’s decision and remains committed to working with him to bring a standalone Batman picture to life,” the studio said a statement.
Affleck has completed work as the Caped Crusader in “Justice League,” which opens Nov. 17. He first appeared as the superhero in last year’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
