Ben Affleck has confirmed that he is directing the solo Batman movie for Warner Bros but is not happy enough with the script to go out and actually make the movie yet.
“I think they have a date for it,” Affleck told reporters during a Justice League set visit.
“Although, I don’t know if I would necessarily be able to make that date because I don’t have a script that’s ready yet. So that’s my—my timetable is I’m not going to make a movie until there’s a script that I think is good because I’ve been on the end of the things when you make movies when you have a script that’s not good yet and it doesn’t pan out.” [laughs]
The Oscar-winning filmmaker of Argo is wary of rushing in to making a huge blockbuster and potentially ruining it, insisting that he wants to treat his adaptation of the character with ‘the highest of standards.’
“I have a script, we’re still working on it, and I’m not happy enough with it yet to actually go out there and make a Batman movie, for which I have the highest of standards, I would say. That’s something that would have to pass a very high bar for me. It’s not just like, ‘Yeah, that might be fun, let’s go try this out.’”
