Ben Affleck Out as Director of 'The Batman'

Ben Affleck Batman
Affleck stll onboard to play the caped crusader, but as director? Nope. Something tells me he and DC just didn't see eye to eye in terms of the creative freedom needed to make a higher-than-average Batman film. Affleck's statement is as follows:
 “There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions,” Affleck said in a statement. “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.”
