A lot of people expected Ben Affleck to direct either “Batman vs. Superman” or “Justice League” but instead Warner Bros./DC gave Zack Snyder both of those films. So to give Ben something to do, they decided to give him his own Batman standalone film which is a good idea.
I’m not a big fan of Ben Affleck’s liberal politics but I do like him as an actor and director. I really liked “The Town” and “Argo”, both good movies.
So since Ben is now the new Batman director, he’s next line of the previous Batman directors: Tim Burton, Joel Schumacher and Christopher Nolan. Ben lines up with them now.
I wonder what Batman villain Ben will pick for his Batman standalone movie? I hope he stays away from the Joker ’cause I’m getting so tired of the Joker. He should go for Riddler or the Penguin. Deadshot will be cool too.
