Ben Affleck to possibly delay 'The Middle Man' project for 'Batman vs. Superman'

According to Cinema Blend on Jan. 25, it appears that Ben Affleck's ability to direct Fox's pilot episode of "The Middle Man" could be delayed due to the influence of Zack Snyder's "Batman vs. Superman" movie. Even though the "Man of Steel" sequel has been pushed back to May of 2016, production of the film is on schedule.

At this point, Fox Studios remains undecided on moving on with another director or waiting it out until Affleck is done with the super hero themed film. Fox has called all participating members to start work immediately, but the conflict with Affleck's ability to direct his first TV series could be problematic.

The main concern is the fact that if he moves forward the designated Dark Knight character in multiple films, this could interfere with other projects that Affleck desired to work on such as "Live by Night" and "Gone Girl". It seems there would be no break for the 42 year old actor as this could bode as a strenuous situation for him as this would not allow any time for other projects.

"Batman vs. Superman" has been rescheduled for release on May 6, 2016.
