The signs are seriously depressing. Whether we want to admit it or not, there are behind-the-scenes issues on the production of The Batman. First, Ben Affleck departed as the director. Then, there were murmurs that the script was going to be rewritten. Now, it seems like he might be retiring his cape and cowl, too. Say it ain’t so, Ben!
Naturally, with big productions such as these, the pressure is insurmountable and there’s a lot of drama in getting all the ducks in a row. The only reason it’s splashed across the news so much is because it’s the freakin’ Batman. If Affleck does indeed depart the project though, it’ll be a sad day for fans as he made an awesome Caped Crusader. However, it’s not all doom and gloom, as we’ve lost Batmen before and come out okay (except for maybe George Clooney’s turn).
