There seems to be a pretty big split among comic book movie fans, about their opinion of Hollywood superstar Ben Affleck and his take on the DC legend Batman, based so far only on his performance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, plenty of fans seem to be giving Ben the benefit of the doubt, waiting to see what he can do with his very own Batman film.
For those of you who do not already know, Ben Affleck is currently working on the screenplay for the planned movie The Batman and he has been updating fans on his progress with the script. Ben says that he wants to make sure that he gets this script just right, before then moving on with making the film, so it could actually be some time before we finally see The Batman hit the big screen.
Affleck was chatting to IGN, when he explained to them, "Last night I spent (time) working on the script. I’m in full-on ‘trying to get it right mode’. It’s not the kind of movie that you can fail quietly at. You have to really be sure that I have something that I feel really confident about before we go forward."
As well as writing the screenplay for the movie and starring in the lead role for the film, Ben Affleck is also currently attached to direct The Batman, which is awaiting the announcement of an official release date until Ben is further along with his script and is happy with it. We just hope that we do not have too long to wait, although we won't mind too much if Affleck manages to deliver a gem.
