Ben Affleck was on the promotional front line for the huge press blitz during the set visit to the Justice League set in London, and Birth.Movies.Death was able to speak with him about the development of his solo Batman film. Affleck confirming he’ll indeed direct.
They talked about meeting a release date and the current status of the film’s script, which is being penned by Affleck and Geoff Johns. He also seemingly makes a joke about the quality of Batman v Superman‘s script.
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.”
A release date hasn’t been made official, but I’m sure we’ll be learning a lot more about it during the Comic-Con panel in July.
