We’ve pretty much known about this for quite some time, but now it’s official; Ben Affleck will not only star in WB’s next solo Batman film, but he will also direct it.
The Batman might be dropping into WB/DC’s slate of films set for release sometime in either 2018 or 2019, which means we’ll have plenty of time to get ready for what is going to be an intense and action-packed film.
I hope Affleck has writing duties too, because films that he’s written/directed and starred in tend to be better than films that he stars in without writing.
I’ve always liked Affleck as a director. I feel that he’s stronger behind the camera than he is in front of it, but I also feel that he’s the best on-screen Batman that we’ve seen yet and I feel like having complete control over the character could lead to very good things.
Or very bad things.
I hope they’re good things though…
