Rumours have been flying all over the place regarding the future of the DC Extended Universe, especially when it comes to the Caped Crusader.
Matt Reeves is directing a Batman solo movie and sources say he’s eyeing up Jake Gyllenhaal to become the new Dark Knight, while Affleck will bow out in Flashpoint.
However in a new interview with Daily Sabah, the incumbent claims he’s not quite done yet.
Affleck said: “For me, it’s interesting, and I always evaluate this stuff on the merit of the material.”
The star continued: “I want to direct a Batman movie, and I never got a script that I was happy with, so they are starting over and writing another script.
And right now, I think a lot of different possibilities I think for the way the DC Universe could go, and I will just follow my interests in pursing that.
“And I know that I love working with this group of people, and it was a real joy for me to make this movie.”
Affleck also spoke positively about his incarnation of Batman, despite rumours he’d had enough of the role.
He added: “I like this version of Batman a lot. It was a lot to carry around the danger of being angry and resentful of Superman the whole time, which led to a darker tone.
“And with this one, Batman is not a Joker and is not as funny, but is hilarious, as the straight man to Flash and other people.
“That’s a nice dynamic to get to play off of somebody and have a little bit more irony and have a little bit more self-awareness, a little bit more fun with the movie. That was great.”
