By now, Ben Affleck knows a stinker when he smells one.

We sensed some trouble brewing in Gotham City last month when the multi-hyphenate stepped down from directing the upcoming solo Batman movie — supposedly so he could focus all his energy on playing the superhero.

But now it looks like Warner Bros. might need some saving, as new rumors are claiming Ben doesn't even want to be Batman anymore!

Before the Argo filmmaker bowed out of directing the Batman v Superman followup, he was making some distressing claims in interviews — saying there wasn't a script yet and that the project wasn't even a "sure thing"!

And according to insiders, the 44-year-old's apathetic responses are due to the fact that he wants to get out of playing the Caped Crusader altogether.

In the latest episode of YouTube's Collider Movie Talk, host John Campea explained he had spoken to three separate sources connected to the hot mess at WB, who all said Batfleck wants to hang up his cape for good.

Prefacing that listeners should take the news "with a massive, massive grain of salt," he dished:

Batfleck won't be saving the DC Comics franchise after all — at least not from behind the camera!

Ben Affleck has decided to step down as director of The Batman and stay on as a producer and star of the upcoming installment.

Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara announced at last year's CinemaCon that the Argo director would be helming the next Batman sequel, which the actor also co-wrote the script for.

But it looks like the 44-year-old isn't the director Gotham deserves, OR the one it needs right now — because he said he'd rather just focus his talents on playing the Caped Crusader!

According to sources, the actor and studio came to the decision together after discussing how to make the best film possible.

In fact, that 2017 Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend might go down as something of a historically bad one for the movie industry — with Silence, Live By Night, and Monster Trucks all bombing in their opener!

This could definitely be taken the wrong way…

On Monday, Sienna Miller stirred things up a bit when she talked to E! News about how she laughed so hard after filming sex scenes for "nine hours" with Ben Affleck. Now that we know Miller's thoughts on the matter, it's time to hear what Batfleck has to say!

While talking with Good Morning Britain, the 44-year-old actor sat down with his Live By Night costar to chat about the flick and unsurprisingly, the topic of Miller's sex scenes comments came up.

The actress took responsibility for whatever drama she caused because of the story before saying she finds "love scenes funny," to which Affleck added:

"One of the virtues of directing a movie is that you get to make the love scene be whatever you want it to be. So if I want it to go on for nine hours as if I was going on for nine hours… We can do that make-believe."
