The Reason Ben Affleck Is Stepping Down As Director Of 'The Batman'

January 30, 2017
Ben Affleck has decided to step down as director of The Batman, but he will still star as the title character and produce the movie.

Ben released a statement saying, "There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions. Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give. It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require. Together with the studio, I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film. I am still in this, and we are making it, but we are currently looking for a director. I remain extremely committed to this project, and look forward to bringing this to life for fans around the world."

Sounds feasible, but I still wonder if there was drama going on.

You will be able to see Ben as Batman in Justice League when it hits theaters this November.
