Ben Affleck recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his new movie Live By Night, but how could the late night host not bring up Affleck’s upcoming appearance as Batman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. A new high-quality image was released over the weekend, and in the interview below Affleck discusses his appearance in the film, while also finally giving an update on his solo Batman movie.
“I’m going to direct the Next Batman. We’re working on it. It’s one of those things that’s really frustrating because like Live by Night took me a year-and-a-half to write it and get it ready. I work really hard. It’s just nobody gave a sh-t! Nobody was like, ‘Where’s Live by Night?!’ But with Batman, I keep on getting, ‘Where’s the f–cking Batman?!” And I”m like, ‘Whoa, I’m working! Give me a second.'”
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince (Gal Gadot), to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller)—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
