Ben Affleck’s ‘The Batman’ has Script Problems but Warner Bros. Don’t Care
The latest regarding Ben Affleck‘s upcoming solo Batman movie is that there are serious problems with the screenplay, which is being written by Affleck and Geoff Johns, DC Entertainment’s CCO. According to The Ringer, executives at Warner Bros. apparently don’t care…
The outlet spoke with the American Psycho screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis who claims that:
“[They] were just telling me that there are serious problems with the script. And that the executives I was having dinner with were complaining about people who work on the Batman movie. And they just said they went to the studio and they said, ‘Look, the script is … Here’s 30 things that are wrong with it that we can fix.’ And [the executives] said, ‘We don’t care. We don’t really care. The amount of money we’re going to make globally, I mean 70 percent of our audience is not going to be seeing this in English. And it doesn’t really matter, these things that you’re bringing up about the flaws of the script.’ So I do think global concerns play a big part in how movies, and what movies, are being made, obviously.”
However, that doesn’t mean the movie is also in trouble, but the whispers are enough to make some fans nervous about The Batman. I don’t know. But I wouldn’t say Ellis is trustworthy, so take everything he says with a grain of salt. And I think these execs shouldn’t be involved with the Batman movie at all, as Warner’s top brass will be behind the DC flick, which is eyeing a 2017 start for release in 2018 or 2019.
But yeah, WB sucks. Affleck sucks. Snyder sucks. Everything sucks. Oh, except Marvel. They deserve solid press lol.
