While there hasn’t been a film starring Affleck’s Batman confirmed yet, it’s likely only a matter of time. If one does come to fruition however, they may already have their director.
Speaking to Total Film Affleck said the following:
“Look, if I could make it work, yeah, Obviously it would be like a dream. The trick is, as to any movie, is to make sure that you – if you’re going to direct it – that you can make it good. You’ve got to have the right idea and the right take on it’ before adding ‘Broadly speaking, it’s something I’d be open to, for sure. It’s a very exciting idea.”
He certainly does seem keen on the idea, and his previous forays into directing have been well received, with his latest Argo, even winning the Best Picture Oscar in 2012. The only thing standing in the way, scheduling:
“He’s got a busy schedule.” Producer Charles Roven explained. “He’s about to start a movie now [Live By Night]. And he’s also got obligations to be in the Justice League movies. The calendar is a bit tricky.”
We’ll see Affleck first in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the synopsis of which reads:
It’s been nearly two years since Superman’s (Henry Cavill) colossal battle with Zod (Michael Shannon) devastated the city of Metropolis. The loss of life and collateral damage left many feeling angry and helpless, including crime-fighting billionaire Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). Convinced that Superman is now a threat to humanity, Batman embarks on a personal vendetta to end his reign on Earth, while the conniving Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) launches his own crusade against the Man of Steel.
