Ben Affleck was all set to star, co-write and direct the standalone Batman film, but the actor recently revealed that he won’t be directing it now.
He was quoted saying, "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."
We are still excited to see Ben in the bat suit again!
