Ben Affleck has stepped down as the director of the Batman solo movie, which he was supposed to star in.

The movie will be produced by Warner Bros and will be under the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). Though the news came as a disappointment for the DC fans and Batman lovers, it was not a shocker since we were getting reports of the script not being in place for the movie.

Ben Affleck is an accomplished actor and an equally competent director, having won the Golden Globes and the BAFTA for Argo (2012), a movie which won the Academy Award for Best Picture. Not to mention the Academy Award he received in Best Original Screenplay for the movie Good Will Hunting (1997), which he co-wrote.

 

Having said that, Affleck stepping down may just be a blessing in disguise for the studio and the DCEU. Here’s why-

1) No more Multitasking

“There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions,” Affleck stated. “Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give. It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require. Together with the studio, I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film. I am still in this, and we are making it, but we are currently looking for a director. I remain extremely committed to this project, and look forward to bringing this to life for fans around the world.”

Given the demand from the studio and fans to churn out quality movies every year to establish the cinematic universe, the triple responsibility of script writing, acting as well as directing would have been hectic.

 

2) Getting the script correct

The movies in the DC Extended Universe have often received a lot of criticism for its gritty and dark portrayal of the superhero stories, which is a diametrically opposite to that of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

2016’s big release and much ambitious movie Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice was panned by critics for the flat plot, whereas Suicide Squad was a mess in terms of the script. Getting the script right, therefore, would be Warner Bro’s top priority.

When this article was being written, we got reports that the initial script for the movie was rewritten by Chris Terrio, who improved upon the work done by Affleck and Geoff Johns.

 

3) Learning from failures

Ben Affleck’s recent directorial adventure Live by Night, produced by Warner Bros was a commercial disaster with the studio set for the loss of $75 million. Thus, the studio may have lost some confidence in the acclaimed director.

 

4) A fresh approach to the Universe

Joe and Anthony Russo

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) was rejuvenated  by the Russo Brothers, with their movies Captain America: Winter Soldier (2014) and Captain America: Civil War (2012). Marvel Studios and Disney have thus recruited them for steering the Universe and direct the Infinity War movies, the culmination of the grand live-action franchise. This comes after some pretty weak performance from Jos Whedon’s two Avengers movies in term of plot.

The DCEU may also be heading towards a similar fate, and we are quite excited at this prospect.

 

The next question arises- Who will be the right man to lead the Batman movies?

Zack Snyder directing Affleck in the sets of Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice

May be George Miller, Darren Aronofsky or the studio may even entrust Zack Snyder to comeback. Only time will tell.

 

Who do you think will be perfect for directing the Batman movie? Tell us in the comments.
