Kenneth Lonergan

Kenneth Lonergan is running to Casey Affleck's defense.

As you know, the Oscar winner was met with quite a bit of criticism during awards season due to his past sexual harassment lawsuit — something that college student Connor Aberle from Wesleyan University (where Lonergan attended back in the '80s) was quick to point out in an op-ed for the school's paper, The Argus.

After catching wind of the assistant opinion editor's piece, the Hollywood director responded with his own two cents, slamming the student's "tangle of illogic, misinformation and flat-out slander."

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.

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.

Ben said in a statement to Variety:
