Although Affleck was set to direct and star in the upcoming Batman movie, he recently revealed that this is no longer the case. The famous actor played the superhero in two movies last year – “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Suicide Squad.”
Ben released a statement explaining why he won’t be directing the movie. “There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions. 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,” said the famous actor in his statement.
“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,” he continued.
We’re fine with whatever Ben decides to do, as long as ensures that we get another phenomenal Batman movie.
