After playing Caped Crusader in Batman v Superman, Justice League and Suicide Squad. Ben Affleck has finally broken silence on why he is against playing superhero.
Affleck confirmed the news and revealed why things fell through.
“I tried to direct a version of it and worked with a really good screenwriter, but just couldn’t come up with a version,” he said. “I couldn’t crack it.” He added: “I thought it was time to let someone take a shot at it. They’ve got some really good people.”
Jimmy Kimmel asked Affleck for one final statement, to which he responded: “I guess, I’m not Batman.”
Speaking about taking on directing Batman, Reeves previously said: “I have loved the Batman story since I was a child. He is such an iconic and compelling character, and one that resonates with me deeply. I am incredibly honoured and excited to be working with Warner Bros to bring an epic and emotional new take on the Caped Crusader to the big screen.”
Hinting at what the film, titled The Batman, will be about, Reeves said recently: “It’s very much a point of video-driven, noir Batman tale. It’s told very squarely on his shoulders. I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional.”
