Ben Affleck was confirmed to direct the Batman solo movie back in April, and now we’re getting some details on the Batman directed Batman movie.
While a few reporters were on set Ben Affleck was asked about the status of the film he says:
“I think they have a date for it. Although, I don’t know if I would necessarily be able to make that date because I don’t have a script that’s ready yet. So that’s my—my timetable is I’m not going to make a movie until there’s a script that I think is good because 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.” [laughs]
Affleck is very dedicated the the film, and obviously wants it to be perfect:
“I have a script, we’re still working on it, and I’m not happy enough with it yet to actually go out there and make a Batman movie, for which I have the highest of standards, I would say. That’s something that would have to pass a very high bar for me. It’s not just like, ‘Yeah, that might be fun, let’s go try this out.’”
Judging from his previous self directed films, we have a reason to have very high hopes for this next Batman film. Hopefully Affleck can deliver the best Batman film of all time. Although it will be very hard to top Christopher Nolan’s Batman films.
What do you think of Affleck directing his own Batman movie? Let us know in the comments.
