Affleck Stepping Down as Director on 'The Batman'
We all know power and responsibility go hand in hand (thanks Uncle Ben) but what happens when you just don't have enough time for it all? Ben Affleck has recently found himself in that very quarrel. Realizing the demands from the Studio as well as fans would be stretching him thin for both the immersive task of being both The Batman and Bruce Wayne, but also attempting to direct it behind the mask would be somewhat limiting to either performance.
Adding to the already mounting pressure, were snags in the script writing as well as concerns with filming and production maintaining a steady schedule towards the target release date. Overall, Affleck's move is a strategic one as he explained in a statement regarding the matter:
“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.”
Affleck wore the caped crusaders emblem in 'Batman Vs Superman' and is looking to expand on his version of Bruce Wayne/Batman's identity in relation to the upcoming series of movies most likely leading up to the 'Justice League' and with time, a more finely tuned "Bat-fleck". We can't wait to see how this turns out!
