In an interview with Jake Hamilton (via Joblo), Ben Affleck spoke about why he stepped down from playing Batman, saying he lost his passion for the role. He made similar comments talking with the New York Times earlier this week.

He said: “We had a script. I liked the script, I wrote it with Geoff Johns, who I have a lot of respect for. It just so happened that I had done a couple of those movies, and I kind of lost my passion for it. You know what I mean? I kind of lost my passion for telling those stories, I got interested in telling stories more like this, and it just seemed like very clear to me that if it’s not the most important thing in the world to you, you’re not going to make a very good movie. The movie deserves to be made by someone whose dying to do it and can’t wait, and that wasn’t me at the time, so I moved on.
