Ben Affleck will not direct “The Batman” but he will still be a producer and the star of the film.
It seems as if Affleck wants to focus on being the best batman in history; and to do so, he will have to five up the director hat and work only in front of the camera. Although, there are rumours that Warner Bros would not give him full control and the creative freedom he demanded to direct this highly anticipated film.
“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.”
Do you think he is making the right decision?
