Affleck denies directing a DC movie for James Gunn

American actor and filmmaker Ben Affleck is putting a nail in the coffin of his DC tenure once and for all.

Affleck also ruled out directing an upcoming DC movie under the new regime headed by James Gunn and Peter Safran.

“I would not direct something for the [James] Gunn DC. Absolutely not,” the “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” he told THR.

“I have nothing against James Gunn. Nice guy, sure he’s going to do a great job. I just wouldn’t want to go in and direct in the way they’re doing that. I’m not interested in that.”

The Oscar-winning “Argo” filmmaker was attached to direct his own “Batman” movie for a couple of years after taking on the role of the Caped Crusader in front of the camera for Zack Snyder.

But he eventually departed that project altogether as Matt Reeves stepped in and rebooted the property with Robert Pattinson in the lead role.

Affleck, who’s next directorial effort is the character drama “Air” in which he stars opposite Matt Damon, told THR that making “Justice League” was what convinced him to bow out of directing a Batman movie.

Affleck noted that “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” is the highest-rated movie on his IMDb. Still, he has no interest in revisiting the superhero genre.
