Ben Affleck reportedly said no to directing Flashpoint

Ben Affleck Batman in Flashpoint

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are also known for directing the 2015 Vacation movie and the recent Game Night movie that gets released next month starring Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams. We don't know yet just how the film will fit into the post-Justice League timeline, but rumors persist that it will be something of a soft reboot for the universe, perhaps offering an opportunity to recast Batman or other central characters.

Dope Director Rick Famuyiwa was previously attached to direct, though he exited over creative differences. A solo film for Ezra Miller's iteration of Barry Allen (who made his proper debut in last year's Justice League), the project has had troubles locking a director down. Affleck's participation in the DC Cinematic Universe as Batman, however, is up in the air.

The studio had initially courted Ben Affleck to return to the director's chair, but he passed on the gig. The duo almost directed that film, but they seem particularly well-suited for Flashpoint, given that their strength is comedy, and The Flash served as the comic relief in Justice League. Affleck's relationship with and future in the DC Extended Universe and Warner Bros.' DC Films projects altogether has been rendered an enigma as a result.

DCWhen will Ben Affleck step down as Batman

It remains to be seen what capacity Affleck will have in the future of Warner Bros.' DC Films projects, but after rumors that the studio had soured on his involvement and were ready to move on to Jake Gyllenhaal, this definitely adds more intrigue to the saga.

Affleck was originally planning to direct and star in a solo Batman movie titled simply The Batman, but he ultimately stepped down and was replaced by filmmaker Matt Reeves (War For the Planet of the Apes).
