With so much hype and rumors surrounding Ben Affleck's highly anticipated take on The Batman, its hard to contain our excitement of the possibility that we will sooner or later see a Batman film that is written, directed, and starring Ben Affleck. Its gonna be so badass! In a recent interview Affleck revealed that he is definitely taking his time and why he's in no hurry to make the film.
Affleck was being interviewed by The New York Times for their TimesTalks series and opened up about the film.
“We still have to get a screenplay and get it together. I’m a real believer in not reverse engineering projects to meet a window or a date, but rather when you get the right story, the right idea, the right thing, then you make the movie. That’s what we’re doing, and I’m hoping to get that done. I’m spending a lot of time working on that, but also working on other stuff.
If I could, there’s nothing I’d love more than to direct a stand-alone iconic, great Batman movie. But it’s been done. Chris Nolan did three really great movies. I’m really mindful of that. I’m not in any hurry to jam the mediocre movie down the pipe. I really want to make sure, if we do it, we get the great version and one that’s worthy of tradition of guys like Tim Burton, Chris Nolan, and Christian Bale.”
