Affleck Confirms Directing Solo “Batman”

During a set visit to “Justice League” this past week in the UK, Ben Affleck confirmed to numerous outlets in attendance that he’s directing the solo “Batman” film and that’s the big reason why he has an executive producer credit on ‘League’.

He also says he doesn’t want to start filming the “Batman” film until he has a script that’s 100% done: “I’ve been on the end of the things when you make movies when you have a script that’s not good yet and it doesn’t pan out.” He is currently working on it but he’s not finished.

Describing his character this time out in ‘Justice’ he says: “[He’s] a little bit more sardonic, humor, a little more irony. He’s on a little more man on a mission this time.” He also says the detective aspect of the character is more present in ‘League’ than it was in ‘Dawn’, and will go even further in the Batman solo film.
