Everything We Know About Ben Affleck’s Planned Batman Movie

Affleck planned to write, direct and star in his canceled Batman movie. Unfortunately, the actor went through a tough time in his personal life which led to his decision to walk away from the project and the stress it would put on Affleck’s life in such a personal situation. The actor exited the Batman movie gradually, however, first deciding to take a step back as a director after he had already turned in a script that was rumored to have excited DC execs at the time. After the film failed to land a director, including an attempted signing Batman’s Matt Reeves, the project fell through and the public never got to see what Affleck had planned for the Caped Crusader.

Since the Batman movie was canceled, snippets of Affleck’s script have made their way online and painted a promising picture of what the movie could have been. Reeves revealed in a prior interview The Batman‘s that Affleck’s storyline was deeply rooted in the existing DCEU and featured a James Bond-esque story. It seemed that Affleck’s story was clearly very different from The BatmanThe standalone character study of Bruce Wayne and his alter ego. The Batman movie with Affleck’s story would also have included Joe Manganiello’s Deathstroke as the main villain.
