Oscar-winner Ben Affleck recently opened up with The New York Times (via ComicBook.com) about his upcoming solo Batman film, confirming that he’s still working on the script, in addition to discussing why he took the part.
“I’m a real believer in not reverse engineering projects to meet a window or a date,” Affleck said of the new Caped Crusader film. “So, that’s what we’re doing.”
“I’m really mindful of that,” he added. “I’m not in any hurry to jam a mediocre film down the pipe.”
The “Batman v Superman” actor went on to describe why he took the part of Batman, referencing his disappointment with 2003’s “Daredevil” as a major reason. “Part of it was I wanted for once to get one of these movies and do it right – to do a good version. I hate ‘Daredevil’ so much.”
“It frustrated me,” Affleck said. “The Netflix show does really cool stuff. I feel like that was there for us to do with that character, and we never kind of got it right. I wanted to do one of those movies and sort of get it right.”
Before we see Affleck suit up as the Dark Knight in his own solo film, he’ll star in the Zack Snyder-directed “Justice League” alongside Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Ray Fisher, Jason Momoa and Ezra Miller, due to hit theaters on November 17, 2017.
