We applaud Ben Affleck for being forthright with the public, letting everyone know about his struggle with alcohol addiction. It was a sincerely brave move.

But after his performance was one of the only positively reviewed things in Batman v Superman, he isn't the hero fans deserve — he's the one they WANT!

So now his admission has admirers asking, does his rehab stint change things for The Batman?

Production of the upcoming Batman solo film has already hit some snags, with scheduling changes and Ben himself dropping out as the director — leading many to wonder if he would even return as the superhero (BvS, Suicide Squad, and Justice League are rumored to fulfill his contractual obligation to the studio).

But fear not, citizens of Gotham!

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:

Cloverfield 2 Is STILL Going To Happen!

Filed under: Film Flickers

cloverfield 2 is still going to happen

Back in May, there were rumors going around that J.J. Abrams' new movie Super 8 was going to be the Cloverfield sequel.

Pretty soon, we learned that wasn't the case, and it sounded like that project was being made INSTEAD of the Cloverfield sequel.

Now, we're excited to report that Cloverfield 2 is still going to happen!

Here's what director Matt Reeves had to say about the project:

"Getting the right idea together has been taking a long time."

"Well, you are going to see it - we just don't know when [laughs]."

"At the moment we are talking about the story quite a lot. Drew Goddard, who wrote the original, is going to pen the sequel and JJ Abrams is very much involved."

"However, the three of us have been so busy that getting the right idea together has been taking a long time."

And here's Reeves on whether or not the film will be shot in "real-time," like the first one:

"You see, that's a difficult part: we want it to be shot like the first but how can you continue that idea successfully for a second time?"

"We have a lot of affection for the original and the sequel can't just be the same thing. But that is tricky when you need to have a monster destroying stuff once again."

Exciting! This is definitely an example of a sequel that we'd be innerested in seeing. The original was out of control!

Are U pumped to hear that Cloverfield 2 is still going to happen?
