Hey everyone! Big news today. Ben Affleck has announced that he will not be directing the Batman 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. 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.”
Ben clearly has a lot of stress on him right now since he was writing, directing, and acting in the same movie. Obviously, this a lot of work and added pressure. So, we think that it is understandable that he is stepping down from directing.
The two suspected directors for this Batman film are Matt Reeves(Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) and Gavin O’Connor(The Accountant).

We will keep you guys updated on this movie, until next time.
