Sorry not to give you a concrete answer, but those are rare these days. Instead, we’re getting the next-best thing: A suspiciously detailed non-answer.
Affleck was careful not to actually say anything about his status of directing a Batman movie, but he did say that he never even considered doing it… until recently:
“I got really inspired by that,” Affleck said, referring to Zack Snyder’s directorial style on the set of Batman v Superman. “And by seeing the scope on which he was telling the story, by seeing what he was able to do with this kind of mythic story on a grand scale.”
He’s not saying he is directing Batman, but he certainly isn’t trying to deny it…
Also, the praise Affleck is heaping on Zack Snyder seems a little over-the-top for the normal press-circuit legal-obligation promotion. It seems that he really does think that Batman v Superman is going to be something special. I guess we’ll have to see if he’s right in March.
