Ben Affleck finished with “IP Movies” puts the last nail in Batman’s coffin

by Stewart Cole

He continued. “It simply came to our notice then The Last Duel, I thought, “Well this is probably the last movie release I’ll have.” Because I do not want to make IP movies where you have this kind of embedded audience. This is something I was interested in and liked, and I just don’t like it anymore. I like others who do. And if you are going to do it, you must love it. And I like something different. So I want to do it. “

In the same interview, Affleck thinks that a handful of major creative directors – Affleck’s name controls Christopher Nolan, Quentin Tarantino, Kathryn Bigelow and Paul Thomas Anderson as examples – could still release major, original films. adults in the halls and bring the audience as if it were an “event” IP. But in general, he believes that these days are probably over and that it is time to move to where the public is, if he does not want to wear a rubber cape and eyeliner again.

Unsurprisingly, Affleck wants to retire from the superhero genre. While everyone remembers his early days as a movie star in similar fancy shows (though not IP based) like Armageddon (1998) and Pearl Harbor (2001), made a breakthrough in the indie world by co-writing and starring Good Will Hunting (1997), and starred in Kevin Smith’s first most ambitious endeavors such as Chasing Amy (1997). After moving on to directing, all of his behind-the-scenes films tend to be noir or thriller like Gone Baby Gone (2007), The city (2010) and the winner of Best Picture, Argo (2012).

However, for Affleck, the future of motion pictures is not that memorable achievement – it’s mostly superhero movies and similar IP-inspired products. Obviously he is not completely against this kind of movies, since he has starred Daredevil (2003) and several DC films directed by Zack Snyder. However, no one can help if his interest was shaken by how brutal the reception was for both DC movies, as well as by seeing Justice League confused into more chaos a few years ago. Maybe like the vegan who works in the sausage factory, it is possible to see very very?

Either way, it’s probably bitter news for Snyder’s so-called “Snyderverse” fans. It already seemed almost impossible for WarnerMedia to reverse its course and “restore Snyderverse,” as the social media hashtag demands, but with Affleck admitting he’s no longer interested in making movies like this, it seems safe enough to assume that last We will see Snyderverse Batman will be out of his role next year The lightning.
