I agree he'd be a great choice to direct, directing and starring in his own features is nothing new for Affleck but... This is a big action feature that would be exhausting even if the director wasn't sweating buckets each day in a Batsuit while doing stunt work and a plethora of action sequences. So i tend to doubt that he'd direct, as cool as it would be. He'll be pushing 50 by that point too.

I hope he directs. He's an amazing director and always seems to give his best performances when he is directing. I've been hoping he would direct a solo bat film since he was announced as batman.

But I see porcelain_chicken's point of view. Directing and acting/stunts and everything that goes with it would be a lot to handle. But even if he doesn't direct himself I'm sure he would have a major say in who directs and have a lot of input while filming. Either way I think a solo bat film with Affleck will be amazing.

He should have directed it and nothing more.

You could be right, but I have high hopes actually. Only time will tell.

I'm okay with him directing, but not while also starring as Batman.
