Ben Affleck Won't Pull Double Duty and Direct 'Batman' Movie

Ben Affleck says he won't pull double duty and star in as well as direct his upcoming solo 'Batman' movie.

"There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions. Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give," he explains in a statement.

"It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require."

"Together with the studio, I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film."

"I am still in this, and we are making it," he clarifies, "but we are currently looking for a director. I remain extremely committed to this project, and look forward to bringing this to life for fans around the world."

Warner Bros. says it "fully supports" the decision and is working with Affleck "to bring a standalone Batman picture to life."

Affleck announced the project after he starred as the Dark Knight in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'.
