Alright, let’s all calm down.It was a slow news week and the media didn’t have much going on but one savory Ben Affleck rumor. He had commented about how he still wasn’t going to move forward with his Batman film until he was ready to. He said this in the face of quite a bit of conflicting reports. You can catch up on all of it right here.
Well it looks like we can all put those fears to rest. Affleck himself was on the Jimmy Kimmel show and said yes it was coming and to please chill out.
“I’m gonna direct the next Batman, we’re workin’ on it. It’s one of those things that’s really frustrating because like with Live by Night, it took me a year and a half to write it and get it ready and I worked really hard, it’s just nobody gave a shit. No one was like ‘Where’s Live by Night?!’ But with Batman I keep getting the like, ‘Where’s the fucking Batman?!’ and I’m like ‘Bro I’m workin’, give me a second!”
Sorry Ben, we just really care about the Batman movie. That all being said, it still doesn’t look like the movie is coming or even filming anytime soon. So unless something drastic happens, 2018 looks like a no go for Batman.
