Ben Affleck may be dealing with a divorce from Jennifer Garner, but he isn’t letting it slow him down professionally. He has two big projects coming up in addition to ‘Batman vs. Superman’ and the upcoming ‘Justice League’ movies, including a solo Batman film!
The very next movie Ben is going to shoot is a mob drama called ‘Live By Night.’ It got the green light from Warner Bros to begin production. He will direct and star in the movie alongside Sienna Miller, Elle Fanning, and Zoe Saldana.
Ben is also planning to direct and star in a standalone ‘Batman’ movie. He’ll co-write the movie with Geoff Johns. It’s set to occur after the ‘Batman vs Superman’ and the ‘Justice League’ movie in 2017. That should be interesting!
Of course there’s still talk about his split from Jennifer. Now sources are claiming that problems actually emerged early in their ten year marriage. When they worked together on ‘Daredevil’ in 2003 (when Jen was still married to Scott Foley and Ben was still dating Jennifer Lopez), Jen wasn’t worried about his reputation as one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors. A source said:
She was clean-cut and seemed to be attracted to that part of him – the ‘bad boy.’ Jen knew what she was getting into when she met Ben.”
A friend of Jennifer’s said she was attracted to Ben’s charisma.
Ben is very charming and he can turn it on. Their relationship in the beginning was a good one.”
However, Jen reportedly got “fed up” with Ben’s behavior, while Ben got tired of her being so “controlling.” The gloves are coming off in this high profile split.
