JUSTICE LEAGUE's Ben Affleck Still Wants To Direct A BATMAN Movie; May Be Evaluating A Return To The Role
Recent reports indicated that Ben Affleck would not be reprising the role of Batman for Matt Reeves' solo film, but the actor suggested that he's still weighing it up during a new interview. Take a look...
For his part, Affleck was typically vague when asked whether he'd be back as The Bat in an interview with Daily Sabah - however, he did seem to suggest that he'd be open to returning if he found the script up to snuff.
“For me, it’s interesting, and I always evaluate this stuff on the merit of the material. I want to direct a Batman movie, and I never got a script that I was happy with, so they are starting over and writing another script. And right now, I think a lot of different possibilities I think for the way the DC Universe could go, and I will just follow my interests in pursing that. And I know that I love working with this group of people, and it was a real joy for me to make this movie.”
So, Affleck decided not to helm The Batman because he didn't like the script? Unless he was taken up wrong during the interview, that certainly seems to be the case.
Hopefully we'll get some kind of official announcemnet on Affleck's tenure as The Dark Knight soon, but in the meantime, let us know what you think of these latest comments in the usual place.
