Amid an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, he cleared it up and affirmed that he will direct the solo Batman motion picture, and that the script is still being worked on.
“I’m gonna direct the next Batman, we’re working on it. It’s one of those things that’s really frustrating because with ‘Live By Night’ it took me a year-and-a-half to write it and get it ready and I worked really hard. It’s just no one gave a s**t. No one was like, ‘WHERE’S ‘LIVE BY NIGHT?’ But with Batman I keep getting the, ‘WHERE’S THE F**KING BATMAN?’ I’m like, ‘Whoa, I’m working! Give me a second!’”
An interview with the Associated Press Affleck uncovered that his solo Batman film will basically be titled The Batman.
Earlier last month, Former Warner Bros President Greg Silverman confirmed The Batman planned for a 2018 release.
