Ben Affleck Batman: Who Should Direct The Film Now

Posted February 16, 2017

Ben Affleck wants to drop out of Warner Bros.' upcoming Batman movie, according to movie industry rumours.

Campea said all his sources talked about how Affleck wants out, rather than other details such as whether the script for the next Batman film is any good.

A couple of weeks ago, after suffering from enormous pressure both from the studio and from fans to rush pre-production script work on The Batman, Affleck made the hard decision to step down as director of the highly anticipated movie.

Perhaps the best thing for fans to do at this stage is to give Affleck some breathing room, and attempt not to hassle him for commentary on social media. On Collider's podcast Collider Talk, insider John Campea claims to have spoken with three different unnamed sources inside Warner Bros. who all confirm that Affleck's trying to get out of his contract. The sound you hear now may very well be the superhero bubble popping. Nevertheless, it is still safe to say that it might still just be rumors.

It's better to have played Batman and have lost than to have never played Batman at all, though.

Last month, Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled al-Sabah visited Tehran, calling for a "normalisation of ties and opening dialogue".

Previously, Forbes' Mark Hughes had unearthed some whispers that Affleck might be somewhat discontent with life as the Dark Knight having already moved away from writing and directing the forthcoming stand-alone solo movie. It has become clear that I can not do both jobs to the level they require.

Unofficially, anyone looking for signs of Affleck's Bat-fatigue shouldn't have any trouble finding them.

It can be recalled that after the release of "Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice" previous year, there were a hundred memes mocking Ben Affleck's misery over the negative reviews of the movie. Reports about the state of the Batman movie script have been all over the place (depending on who you ask, either it's getting a complete overhaul or all good to go and perfectly good as-is), and Affleck's expressed his exasperation over the constant questioning and huge scrutiny from fans.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.
