All great things take time and it looks like the same thing applies to the upcoming “Batman” movie. Star and director Ben Affleck admitted that although the movie is taking some time to make due to a few hiccups, a solo Batman film will see the light of day.

While appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday night, the actor expressed his frustrations with the upcoming flick explaining that there will be more Batman. “I’m gonna direct the next Batman. We’re working on it,” Affleck told the talk show host.

The actor had obligations to appear in “Justice League” before he could continue on with the Batman franchise. “It’s one of those things that’s really frustrating — with ‘Live by Night,’ it took me a year and a half to write it and get it ready and I worked really hard,” Affleck explained.

Affleck stated that not many people cared about his previous movie but when it comes to the cape crusader, people are constantly asking him about it. “I’m like, ‘I’m working! Can you give me a second?’” the actor said as his response to those inquiring about the movie.

During an interview with The Guardian, published earlier this month, Affleck shared his doubts about directing the upcoming Batman film. “That’s the idea. But it’s not a set thing and there’s no script. If it doesn’t come together in a way I think is really great, I’m not going to do it,” he stated.

However, it now looks like the actor is pretty confident that he will be behind the camera for his next film.

“Justice League” is scheduled to hit theaters Nov. 17. In the meantime, those hoping to see Affleck on the big screen sooner can check out “Live By Night,” which debuts Jan. 13.
