Ben Affleck Explains Why He's Not Making Another Batman Film

Ben Affleck is opening up about why he no longer will be playing the role of Batman in the DC Universe.

The 46-year-old actor and filmmaker was originally set to to star in, write, and direct an upcoming Batman standalone movie.

Ben later decided to not write and direct the movie, then eventually dropped out of the role as well. The movie will now focus on a younger version of the caped crusader.

When asked by IGN to describe his plans for the project, Ben said, “That was part of the problem. We worked on the script, I was trying to figure out how to crack it, and I was never happy enough with it where I thought it was worth going out and making it because I just didn’t want to do a version that I wasn’t really excited by, so I still don’t know.”
