Ben Affleck has hinted that he would like to direct a superhero movie.
The Oscar winner is set to appear on screen as Batman in upcoming movies 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice', 'Suicide Squad' and 'Justice League' and says working with director Zack Snyder on 'Batman v Superman' has inspired him.
He told USA Today: "I'll just say going through the process, I would never have imagined that I could or would direct a movie like this. And in working with Zack Snyder and seeing what he did and watching him every day, I got really inspired by that and by seeing the scope on which he was telling the story, by seeing what he was able to do with this kind of mythic story on a grand scale."
Meanwhile, Ben previously admitted he is feeling a "ton of pressure" ahead of the release of 'Batman v Superman'.
He said: "I think there is a ton of pressure on it. I mean I would be bull****ing you to say there isn't. If it doesn't do well that will be extremely disappointing."
The 'Gone Girl' star also praised the CEO of Warner Bros., Kevin Tsujihara, for "caring" about the production.
He said: "I was really impressed by ... the fact that he cared. It was not like some guys, especially at that level, where it would be, 'We need a franchise movie ... we just need a movie with the names 'Batman' and 'Superman' on it and it doesn't matter what it is.
"For him, that wasn't it. He was willing to take longer to make the movie to get it right to make it a movie of higher quality."
