So one of the bigger news items floating around the entertainment world days (aside from Beyonce and her pregnancy) is that Ben Affleck put out a statement that he will no longer be directing the upcoming The Batman film for Warner Brothers and DCEU.
Needless to say, for many, this did not go over well.
I love how fast the tides can turn in Hollywood and the Geek community.
People went from laughing at the notion of a ‘Batfleck’ to practically weeping in their sleeves and proclaiming that the “The Sky is falling” because he said he won’t be more involved in the upcoming movie.
Just goes to show… you can go from zero to hero in a nano-second.
I personally don’t see this as the end of the world. I can definitely see the pressure Affleck is under and the desire for someone to share the burden.
So I’m hoping this works out and DC can get back in the game. Competition is a good thing and the more comic book universes out there the better as far as I’m concerned.
