Ben Affleck Vows To Never Direct A DC Movie For James Gunn


Ben Affleck has ended his relationship with James Gunn's DCU, saying he won't be directing projects for the franchise.

There have been talks about James Gunn meeting with the 50 year-old-actor-filmmaker for future projects, but the latter has had the final word on the matter.

Ben Affleck took on the role of Batman for Zack Snyder's 'Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice,' later reprising his role for 'Justice League' and 'Suicide Squad.'

Ben Affleck was going to write, direct, and star in a standalone 'Batman' movie. The film was said to be a more action-packed adventure set at the Arkham Asylum in Gotham. 

Joe Manganiello was cast as Slade Wilson/Death Stroke, the film's primary antagonist. 

However, working in 'Justice League' under replacement director Joss Whedon soured the experience of playing Batman in future movies.

Ben Affleck's solo 'Batman' film was canceled in 2019, and Robert Pattinson replaced him.

Ben Affleck has been candid about how his time playing Batman led to self-sabotage as he constantly drank.
