I don’t understand why he could have refused such offer?He didn’t want to helm the superhero flick because he didn’t feel confident enough to take charge of an “epic effects movie”,this make sense.
The ones who felt suitable for this upcoming movie are Zack Snyder with Christopher Nolan.
“The one benefit of having done all kinds of movies as an actor is, you learn the pros and cons of being tempted to do a really big movie because it costs a lot of money,” Affleck said.
“With Superman, I think they’re going to do a great version. Chris Nolan is brilliant and they’ve got a great director for it.
“I’ve love to do something like Blade Runner, but a lesson I’ve learned is to not look at movies based on budget, how much they’ll spend on effects, or where they will shoot. Story is what’s important. Also, there are a lot of guys ahead of me on the list to do epic effects movies.
I just can’t wait to see the new superman and I am sure it will have huge success!
