Ben Affleck Confirms the Batman Movie is Still Happening

Ben Affleck has been doing promotion for his new film Live By Night and with each interview he’s being asked constantly about the status on The Batman, something many fans will understand can be exhausting for anyone, especially when they are trying to sell another film.

Affleck during his interview with IGN was asked how he is able to do all the stuff he has done this year, to which Affleck gave a breath of relief and then goes on to say he is “Very proud” of both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League and is excited for fans to see Justice League later this year.

He is than asked about what he feels is the time when working on The Batman goes from a screenplay to actually filming and he simply says:

“Like with any film if I’m(Affleck) excited for a script and we’re working on it, we’re going to make it, “He also says “There’s great stuff in it now, it just needs to get better and better. “

He also spoke with Fox 5’s Kevin McCarthy who listed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as his top 10 films of 2016, about directing the film and Affleck goes on to assure him “We’re good and going.”

Even during an interview on the late night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live, Affeck confirms the movie is still happening, but admits to being tired of being asked about it while he’s trying to promote his latest film Live By Night.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

    Of course the movie is happening, people who write on sites online don’t know anything about filmmaking and production, the majority of the sites are just ignorants and clickbaiters. I’m glad that there is this site that write with honesty and clarity. This is the right site for all DC fans. If is true what the cast of the movie said, that the film shooting will start during the spring, means that the movie is already in pre-production. Ben Affleck is obviously tired of all the questions, but seems like journalists are too much selfish, stupids and idiots to understand, because they keep asking him. He’s promoting other movies right now. The Batman will begins filming this year and it will be released next summer, I’m sure.
