The rumor mill has been going on about Batfleck himself, Ben Affleck is going to be directing the next solo Batman film as well as star as the Dark Knight which happens to be missing from the DC movie lineup. In an interview with Affleck’s representatives they spill some beans on why Ben Affleck may be directing a Batman film.
If you haven’t already seen ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ my best recommendation to you is to get off your butt and go see it. Sure there have been alot of criticism about the flick but Affleck’s version of Batman / Bruce Wayne is by far the best version of the Dark Knight. Even his Bruce Wayne is not the typical billionaire playboy that we have seen on-screen so far. He is not only a Knight-mare (get it?) to criminals but his Bruce Wayne is a fear inspiring person who won’t back down from a challenge.
Affleck has starred as Bats in ‘BvS: Dawn of Justice’, and will be popping up this August in ‘Suicide Squad’ so that is two of the three contractually obligated times he will be showing up as well as ‘The Justice League’ which opens November 17, 2017. Warner Bros. would be stupid not give him what ever he wants since this critically bashed film not only is loved by fans and casual movie-goers alike but managed to rake in $420 million in global box-office receipts, with about $166 million from the U.S. and Canada alone. The film only cost $250 million to make.
