He will co-write and direct the film and his immense talents behind the camera will be reverential of the films which came before. Speaking at the premiere of his new film Live By Night Affleck said:
““I respect all of those [Batman] movies,” he said. “Christopher Nolan did an incredible job, Christian Bale did an incredible job, Tim Burton did an incredible job. At a certain point you have to look forward and try to believe in your own vision for it and not be looking over your shoulder the whole time. I go into that movie with a tremendous amount of respect for the people who came before me.”
