Ben Affleck Talks on the Idea of Directing a Batman Film


Ben Affleck who’s playing Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, who’s also a Oscar winning director, has been rumored for sometime now that he’ll be directing the first Batman solo film for the DC Extended Universe, which has yet to receive an official release date.

USA Today recently asked Affleck if one of the reasons why he signed up to play Batman, was to tell his own stories in Batman’s universe, which Affleck responded with the following:

“I’ll just say going through the process, I would never have imagined that I could or would direct a movie like this. And in working with (Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder) and seeing what he did and watching him every day, I got really inspired by that and by seeing the scope on which he was telling the story, by seeing what he was able to do with this kind of mythic story on a grand scale.”
