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.”
One of the names currently on the short list to take over directing duties is MATT REEVES (War for the Planet of the Apes).

Affleck stated: “The movie I think is gonna be called ‘The Batman’. At least that’s what we’re going with now. I might change it. I think that’s about it, that’s all I got. We’re working on the script, the script is going well, I’m really excited about it. I assure you when anything develops you’ll hear about it.”
