Ben Affleck breaks silence about The Batman.
 

 
After Justice League, Affleck faced several years of personal (and public) struggles with alcohol but is now on his way back to the top, starring in The Way Back, a movie about an alcoholic who's asked to coach his old high school's basketball team. A new New York Times with Affleck reflects on his time as Batman.

Africa in 1900 is a long way from “The Batman,” which Affleck was supposed to direct himself. He stepped aside, allowing Matt Reeves to take over (and Robert Pattinson to don the cowl), after deciding that the troubled shoot for “Justice League” had sapped his interest. Affleck never seemed to enjoy his time as Batman; his sullen demeanor while promoting “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” in 2016 resulted in the hit meme Sad Affleck.

In his previous statements, Affleck blamed his departure from The Batman on trouble getting the script where he wanted it, but now he paints a very different picture, saying the script was good, but the behind the scenes issues were too much "I showed somebody ‘The Batman’ script. They said, ‘I think the script is good. I also think you’ll drink yourself to death if you go through what you just went though again.'"

In a nutshell he didn’t cope well the first time and his friends thought he wouldn’t be able to make it through another Batman film. It’s a shame because he gave a glimpse into what could’ve been
, I guess his demons and the bottle was just too strong. God Bless him though. I hope he gets himself together.

I might be in the minority here but I thought BVS was good as hell (extended version)
I liked Aquaman, Wonder Womam, Man of Steel and Justice League.
Wasn’t feeling suicide Squad though.
DC gets a bad rap but most of their movies are good.
The last 45 minutes to an hour of BVS was dope.

I liked the detective aspects, but the most boring interpretation of Batman I ever saw

It was good but it was like two different movies in one. You could tell where is was all Snyder and tell where it’s as josh...all the josh parts k*lled the movie..just like he k*lled the age of ultron

I notice that the second time I watch it....like why are all these jokes in here they just don’t fit.

Dc has the ability to be good as marvel, but they need one person at the head of it all , like a Kevin F.

Dc just got people making movies just to make it and no connectivity to it but using all their hero’s.

But I will give dc this, their animated movies are the best hands down

His Batman was severely mischaracterized though no fault of his own. Zack Snyder just directs things with a “you know what’s cool?” Mentality and that almost never leads to good story choices . Mans was running around murdering mfs with no justification and making d*ck Cheney decisions about superman
