After it was reported that The Batman won’t start shooting until 2018, Ben Affleck also clarified that his problems with Alcoholism didn’t have anything to do with him quitting the project.
The said Facebook post has fuelled speculations that Ben Affleck’s alcohol addiction may have strained his marriage with Jennifer Garner.
As you’ve probably read by now, the Justice League star announced in a Facebook post on Tuesday that he sought treatment for alcohol addiction.
I’m certainly glad to see Affleck headed in the right direction on his road to recovery and wish the entire Garner-Affleck family the best.
Affleck acknowledges that there is still work ahead in battling his addiction, and that completing treatment “was the first of many steps being taken toward a positive recovery”.
The 44-year-old actor-director has struggled with sobriety off and on over the years, just as his father did before him. We may not get a Batman movie until 2020 or so but it seems like the odds of it being an excellent Batman movie are much better than they once were.
This isn’t the first time he’s gushed about his wife. This will give director Matt Reeves a flawless platform to work his own magic on “The Batman”, while he and Ben Affleck will be able to develop and evolve the film in tandem together.
Garner and Affleck announced their separation – and their intention to co-parent their three children – in 2015, but have not yet divorced.
Samuels co-founded The Hills Treatment Center, a Commission of Accredited Rehabilitation Facilities’ certified drug and alcohol rehabilitation center, and still serves as CEO. I did know that as a child. “He’s been sober for several decades, which I think is pretty impressive”.
Affleck, who was at the recent 2017 Oscars, starred in three movies a year ago: “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, “The Accountant”, and “Live by Night”, the last of which he also wrote and directed.
