Bad news Batman fans! Ben Affleck has pulled out of directing THE BATMAN, the solo Batman film he had in development. Don’t worry, he’s still going to star as the Caped Crusader in the film (for now), but will be looking for a new director to help him tackle the project. This news has disappointed a lot of DC movie fans because Ben Affleck was great as Bruce Wayne/Batman in Batman v Superman last year, even though the movie wasn’t as good as they’d hoped. On top of that, Ben Affleck has a solid record as director with movies like The Town and Argo. Unfortunately his latest film, Live By Night, has not been as successful with critics and audiences.
Hopefully Ben finds a solid director to help him with THE BATMAN, or else the DCEU could be in BIG trouble! We’ll see Ben Affleck as Batman next in JUSTICE LEAGUE which comes out in November.
