Could Ben Affleck Still Direct The Batman Movie?

Growing rumors suggest that next year, when director Matt Reeves starts production work on the next standalone Batman movie – The Batman – that Ben Affleck will no longer be involved. Affleck was originally due to direct the film, and more and more it looks as though he’ll be handing up the cape and cowl to allow Reeves to recast the role.

It’s important to note that none of this has been confirmed. Affleck himself has cast some doubt on his Batman future, but for the time being, he’s very much the incumbent Dark Knight.
