I think we all saw this coming and I get the feeling Ben Affleck just wasn’t enjoying all the pressure from fans about the upcoming 2018 movie The Batman so it looks like he will no longer be in the director’s chair.
According to Variety Affleck stated “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. 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.”
At least he’s still coming back as Batsy but I’m curious about who would want to direct.
