Ben Affleck No Longer Directing “The Batman”
Stepping down from his director chair, Ben Affleck is ditching the director role for his upcoming solo movie as the Batman.
Affleck is still onboard in playing the DC superhero but will let someone else step in to helm the standalone film.
Affleck’s reason for stepping down as director is because the actor wanted to keep all his focus and passion to playing the role of the dark knight.
Affleck will return as the Batman in the “Justice League” film set to hit theaters on Nov. 17.
Rumored for 2018, The Batman will most likely be a sequel to Justice League.
