Ben Affleck and Warner Bros., after discussing how to best make "The Batman" film possible, came to a decision together that Affleck will step down as director but will remain on as a producer and star of the project.

“There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions,” Affleck said in a statement. “Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give. 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, 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. fully supports Ben Affleck’s decision and remains committed to working with him to bring a standalone Batman picture to life,” the studio said a statement.

Affleck and Warner Bros. will now begin searching for a new director as Affleck has completed work on "Justice League,” as Batman, pictured above. The new Batman project script was co-written by Affleck and Geoff Johns.
