While reports claim that production on Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie has been pushed back, the actor, writer, and director continues to work on the script and develop the idea. IGN recently sat down with Affleck to discuss his new movie Live By Night, and while he didn’t offer too many details he acknowledged that the script for The Batman is in a good place and that he wants to make it better and better.
“There’s great stuff in it now. It just needs to get better and better. It’s the same way I felt about Live By Night when I was prepping it, it’s just that no one was asking me questions because nobody gave a shit, because there wasn’t any click-throughs.”
“It took me a year plus to get (Live By Night) ready to launch. Hopefully it won’t take me that long for Batman. We’re working, I think we’re ahead of the curve, and we’re excited.”
If the reports are true and production on Affleck’s Batman movie has been pushed back, it can only mean good things. This gives Affleck the time he needs to work on the script and make the best possible movie about a character we all love. You can watch the full interveiw with Ben Affleck below.
