The most recent news for DC Comics and Warner Bros’ Batman film has stunned fans, as director and writer Matt Reeves will not have Ben Affleck as the titular character.

The Justice League star has talked about his exit from DCEU, including an official “jersey retirement” while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live. However, Ben Affleck only went into detail recently on the reasons behind his decision, revealing to IGN why he walked away from the film.

“That was part of the problem,” said Affleck. “We worked on the script, I was trying to figure out how to crack it, and I was never happy enough with it where I thought it was worth going out and making it because I just didn’t want to do a version that I wasn’t really excited by, so I still don’t know.”

Ben Affleck also talked about his attempts to make the film two years back, while he was still linked with it. He said that even back then he wouldn’t rush into the film and had to have full confidence in the storyline.

“I don’t have a script that’s ready yet. My timetable is I’m not going to make a movie until there’s a script that I think is good because I’ve been on the end of the things when you make movies when you have a script that’s not good yet and it doesn’t pan out,” Affleck told IGN in 2016. “I have a script, we’re still working on it, and I’m not happy enough with it yet to actually go out there and make a Batman movie, for which I have the highest of standards, I would say. That’s something that would have to pass a very high bar for me. It’s not just like, ‘Yeah, that might be fun, let’s go try this out.'”

Ben Affleck recently confirmed that he’s done with the character, paving way for a new actor to take over the mantle.

“Yeah, I am. I have decided — I tried to direct a version of it, worked with a really good screenwriter, but couldn’t come up with a version,” Affleck told Kimmel during his appearance on the late night show. “Couldn’t crack it. So I thought it was time to let someone else take a shot at it, and they got some really good people.”
