Ben Affleck was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to promote his new movie Live By Night, but naturally he was asked about Justice League and The Batman as well.
Kimmel showed Affleck the new Justice League photo that was released over the weekend, and he seemed to like it a lot. “Damn, I make that look pretty good,” Affleck said when he saw himself in the new armored Batsuit.
Kimmel then shifted over to The Batman, and Affleck again confirmed that he’s doing it, he just needs to take his time.
“I’m going to direct the next Batman. We’re working on it,” Affleck said. “It’s one of those things that’s really frustrating because Live By Night took me a year and a half to write it, and get it ready, and I worked really hard. And nobody gave a shit! No one was like ‘where’s Live By Night?!’ But with Batman I keep getting ‘where’s the f*cking Batman?!’. I’m like bro, I’m working! Give me a second.”
Earlier this week news broke that production on The Batman would be pushed from spring to the summer, probably to give Affleck that extra time he needs to get everything just right.
