Ben Affleck has stepped down as director of the upcoming ‘The Batman’. Affleck said, “It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require.”
He will continue in the role of Batman and is also co-writing the screenplay. Reports suggest that Matt Reeves director of ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ is in line to replace Affleck at the helm. The film is still in pre-production with J.K. Simmons, Joe Manganiello and Jeremy Irons all attached.
