Variety is reporting that Ben Affleck confirmed to them that his solo Batman movie will be ready to shoot in Spring.
Affleck indicated that he expected the film will begin shooting in the spring.
In previous interviews Affleck has been cautious to confirm a start date for The Batman, saying that he won’t begin directing until he has a perfect script. I guess that perfect script is further along than expected as Affleck seems more confident in his vision and the start of the Batman movie.
“We’re on the right track with that and everything is coming together. We’re still finishing up a script. I’m very excited.”
Affleck also discussed with Variety the different directors and actors who have worked on Batman in the past, saying that he might bee too cautious when it comes to working on an already popular character.
“I respect all of those Batman movies. Christopher Nolan did an incredible job, Christian Bale did an incredible job, Tim Burton did an incredible job. At a certain point you have to look forward and try to believe in your own vision for it and not be looking over your shoulder the whole time. I go into that movie with a tremendous amount of respect for the people who came before me.”
