According to THR
Hmm. Must say I’m a little bit disappointed. I like Affleck as a director – and I loved him in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
I really believed a Batman adventure with him both behind the camera and in front could’ve really been something special.
Oh well. He’s still writing, producing and starring as The Caped Crusader. So his expertise as a filmmaker will still inform the project.
Question is now – who’s going to direct? I’m thinking of Dennis Villeneuve. Could also be a good time for Justin Lin to step in?
This is a blow – but I’m still really looking forward to the film.
You guys got any suggestions?
