The filming of the Justice League film sparked Ben Affleck’s desire to hang on to the Batman counter.

Affleck, 49, told the Los Angeles Times about director Zach Snyder’s 2017 film: “It’s really the Justice League that’s the rarest for me. “It was a bad experience because things got mixed up: my personal life, my divorce, being too far away, the competitors’ agenda, and then Zach’s personal tragedy. [with his daughter committing suicide during the filming] and re-shooting. It was simply the worst experience. That was terrible. “

The whole experience made Affleck play against Caped Crusader. “I didn’t like it all,” he said. There was a time when I said, “I’m not going to do this anymore.” It’s not even about the fact that the Justice League is so bad. Because it could be anything. “

But in the end, it was the Justice League that Affleck decided to shoot the film Batman and give up directing. Robert Pattinson will now play the role of Gotham City superhero in the film, which opens on March 4.

“I looked at him and thought,‘ I’m not happy to do that. The person who did it should love it, ”Affleck said.“ You always have to want these things, and I love doing it when I’m 32 or something. But that’s when I started to realize that it wasn’t worth it.

But after that big paycheck, Affleck pays personal dividends: Instead of getting Batman, he goes into rehabilitation for alcoholism.

“The great benefit of redirecting and recalibrating your priorities is that once it started to be more about the experience, I felt more comfortable,” he said.

Although he regrets filming Justice League, Affleck will not back down from starring in the 2003 critically acclaimed Gigli, in which he co-starred with his then and current girlfriend Jennifer Lopez. In addition to being critically acclaimed, the film also exploded at the box office.

“But if it weren’t for Gigli’s attitude, I wouldn’t have finally decided,‘ I have no choice but to direct films, ’which was the true love of my professional life,” Affleck Entertainment Weekly said. in the story of the new cover to the publication.

“So it’s a gift. And I met Jennifer, the relationship with her was very important in my life.
