Ben Affleck Gives Update On Solo Batman Film, Confirms Justice League For Comic-Con

By

Now that Captain America: Civil War is out of the way, DC seems intent on stealing the spotlight back from Marvel. After giving us a plethora of marketing material for Suicide Squad, they’ve now shifted the focus to Justice League, with a ton of new details trickling out today, including two new logos and a shot of the new Batmobile, all of which can be seen above.

The new information we’ve learnt is all thanks to numerous set visit reports which have hit the web, giving us a much better idea of what to expect from Zack Snyder’s upcoming film. It’s by no means the end of things, either, as according to Ben Affleck, the movie will also be making its presence felt next month at Comic-Con. We knew that the studio would definitely have Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman there, but now it appears as if Justice League will be shown off in some capacity as well, which is certainly exciting to hear.

Speaking of Ben Affleck, during Collider’s aforementioned set visit, the actor gave an update on what’s going on with the solo Batman film, revealing the following:

“I think they have a date for it. 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]

“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.’”

So, still nothing concrete then, but it’s reassuring to hear that Affleck is taking his time with this one, and not just rushing something out the door. His passion for the character, and the DCEU as a whole, is very apparent and given that he’s fully in charge for the solo Batman film, we’re confident that it will turn out a lot better than his first outing as the iconic hero.
