Ben Affleck Will No Longer Direct 'The Batman'

Ben Affleck has stepped down from directing The Batman, the upcoming solo flick about the superhero.

The 44-year-old actor will remain with the project as a producer and actor, according to Variety.

“There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions. 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,” Ben said in a statement.

He added “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.”

Ben and Warner Bros. are now looking for a new director for the flick, which is said to start filming this summer.

Ben Affleck Finally Reacts to 'Sad Ben Affleck' Meme!

Ben Affleck is finally responding to the “sad Ben Affleck” meme that went viral last year.

“It taught me not to do interviews with Henry Cavill where I don’t say anything and they can lay Simon & Garfunkel tracks over it,” Ben told BBC Radio 1 in an interview when asked what he learned from filming Batman v Superman. “That’s one thing I learned.”

Ben Affleck Says His Boston Accent is Better Than Matt Damon's

Move over, Matt Damon! Ben Affleck claims his Boston accent is far superior to his fellow Boston native’s.

It all started when sports writer Bill Simmons stated that Matt‘s accent in Good Will Hunting is “the greatest Boston accent that’s ever been captured in a movie by an actual actor.”

Ben found out about this and obviously had to set the record straight.

When People asked him who he thinks has the best Boston tongue, Ben responded, “Mine, in Good Will Hunting. Way better than Matt’s.”

“I can’t believe he singled out Matt Damon’s as better than mine?” he added. “Did he see the movie? He’s older, he’s losing it.”

Matt, however, thinks both Ben and his brother Casey Affleck did a great job with their accents in the film.

Ben Affleck on Batman Questions: 'It's Such a Pain in the Ass'

Ben Affleck is sick of answering Batman movie questions!

A video from ET has surfaced online, where the 44-year-old actor was asked if he’s tired of answering questions about the upcoming standalone film and whether it will get made.

“Oh my God, it’s such a pain in the ass. It’s, like, every time I mention Batman it gets this huge click bait. And when I was doing this movie [“Live by Night”], it took me two years to get it together, but no one ever asked me “Where is ‘Live by Night?’” Ben said.

“They ask me, ‘Batman, Batman, Batman.’ ‘Batman’ is coming along. It’s going to be great. We’re going to make something really special. We’re going to take the time to make it right. We’re going to do it good. We’re going to do it the right way and the fans are going to love it,” he added.
