Ben Affleck has given the latest update on his Batman solo movie, and it doesn't sound like the film is coming anytime soon.

Affleck spoke with The Guardian recently and revealed that he still planned on directing a Batman solo movie, expected to be titled The Batman. However, there's been little progress made at this point.

"It's not a set thing and there's no script," he admitted. "If it doesn't come together in a way I think is really great I'm not going to do it."

Meanwhile, Affleck said back in July that he had a script and that they were "still working on it," but, "I'm not happy enough with it yet to actually go out there and make a Batman movie, for which I have the highest of standards, I would say. That's something that would have to pass a very high bar for me. It's not just like, 'Yeah, that might be fun, let's go try this out.'"

Outgoing Warner Bros. President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production Greg Silverman stated in a recent interview with Deadline that Affleck's Batman movie would be coming in 2018. Yet, based on the sound of Affleck's comments, it may not be ready in time unless they really get to work.

In the mean time, Affleck will be seen later this year in Justice League. The star will reprise his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne, reuniting with Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Other stars include Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as the Flash and Ray Fisher as Cyborg.

Justice League will be released in theaters on Nov. 17.

Other films scheduled for the DC Cinematic Universe include Wonder Woman on June 2, The Flash and Aquaman in 2018, Shazam in 2019 and Cyborg and Green Lantern Corps in 2020. Of course, dates are subject to change as we saw with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. That film was scheduled for July 17, 2015 but had to be pushed to March 25, 2016.
