Re: Do you want Affleck as the director of the next Batman series?
Of all the actor-directors out there, Ben is among the best of the best, and would absolutely do an incredible job as the director and star of a solo Batman film or series of solo Batman films. The projects he's picked to direct and/or star in aren't really the kind of things I'm generally interested in, but you don't get recognized by entities like the Golden Globes, SAG, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, etc. (even if he was passed over for a Best Director nomination, they still recognized him by nominating Argo for Best Picture and awarding the award to the film) if you're not immensely talented and extremely good at what you're doing.
