Ben Affleck NOT Interested in Directing any DCU Movies!

According to a recent report by THR, Ben Affleck has turned down the opportunity to direct a movie for James Gunn’s DC Universe. The news comes as a surprise to many, as Affleck is an accomplished director and has been involved in the DC Universe before, playing the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “Suicide Squad,” and “Justice League.”

The report suggests that Affleck may have declined the offer due to his focus on other projects, including his role in George Clooney’s upcoming film “The Tender Bar.” Additionally, Affleck has been busy with his new production company, The Kindred Collective, which is focused on producing content that celebrates the human spirit and fosters connection and understanding.

While Affleck’s decision not to direct a movie for the DC Universe may be disappointing to some fans, it’s important to note that he has left his mark on the franchise in other ways. His portrayal of Batman was well-received by many, and his involvement in the production of “Justice League” helped bring the film to completion after director Zack Snyder left the project.

Despite turning down the opportunity to direct a DC Universe movie, Affleck’s career as both an actor and director continues to thrive. He recently starred in the critically acclaimed film “The Last Duel,” which he co-wrote with Matt Damon and Nicole Holofcener. Additionally, his upcoming role in Ridley Scott’s “The Last Duel” has generated buzz, with many anticipating a strong performance from the actor.

As for the DC Universe, James Gunn continues to be a driving force behind the franchise, having directed the upcoming film “The Suicide Squad” and serving as an executive producer on the HBO Max series “Peacemaker.” With Gunn’s vision and talent, the DC Universe is sure to continue to grow and evolve in exciting ways.
