From “Aquaman” to “Wonder Woman 1984” to “Suicide Squad 2,” here's where every DC movie stands following the recent behind-the-scenes tumult.
Director of the upcoming Caped Crusader flick will be a standalone Bat-story; Ben Affleck still attached to star.
He says, "I want to make sure you are experiencing something from the perspective of the main character in the story. I'm a huge Hitchcock fan — I like the idea of being immersed in that perspective."
Ben Affleck has decided to step down as director of The Batman and remain on as a producer and star of the project. Affleck is still on board to play the superhero, but sources close to the talent said Affleck and Warner Bros. discussed how to make the best film possible and this was the decision both parties came to. “There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions,” Affleck said in a statement.
