The new Batman, Ben Affleck, is showing everybody that he’s got a lot of credentials up his sleeve as he is revealed to be the most successful director of the last decade based on The Roosevelt statistics. Read on to know more about this scoop.

On his pursuit of proving most criticisms wrong that he is indeed fit to play the role of the new Batman in “Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice,” Ben Affleck took on the said role because of how challenging it is for his career — both inward and outward. However, the actor may be facing some heavy-laden criticisms in his acting career, but it would appear that he is hailed on his other entertainment career as an active film helmsman.  Just recently, the known statistical presenting site, The Roosevelt, gathered enough surveys and facts which led them to hail Ben Affleck as the most successful director in the past 10 years.

Based on the report of Inquisitr, The Roosevelt was able to amass specific and definitive table results which indicated Ben Affleck besting notable helmsmen like Steven Spieldberg, Clint Eastwood, Ang Lee and more. He appears to be leading the race with an average of 94.67% success rate. Following him is his director in the mystery, thriller “Gone Girl” — David Fincher — who falls behind him with a shocking 86.2%.

Truth be told, there really isn’t any verbatim which serves as the main basis to determine a successful director as each has different approach than the other. However, the site managed to collect factual evidence over 11 notable helmsmen who showed great works of art. These are all collective information about their film’s scores on Rotten Tomatoes and reputable film review aggregator. The Roosevelt then teamed together with visual agencies Column Five and Visage to come up with a clerical graph of the substantial data they’ve gathered. Check out the breakdown below on who are the top 11 successful directors over the last decade.

  1. Ben Afleck – 94.67
  2. David Fincher – 86.2
  3. Martin Scorsese – 86.14
  4. Christopher Nolan – 85.8
  5. Coen Brothers – 84.16
  6. Quentin Tarantino – 81.5
  7. Wes Anderson – 80.4
  8. Steven Spielberg – 76.14
  9. Ang Lee – 73.25
  10. Clint Eastwood – 61.78
  11. Ron Howard – 57.57

For some sites, the method of determining who is a great director compared to another may be quite plausible, but it certainly does not mean that it is the only basis. By Cinema Blend, Rotten Tomatoes cannot entirely be considered as a credible site to label a film’s quality to either be rotten or fresh. In addition to that, they’ve also highlighted how being a prolific actor hurts filmmakers in the measurement of their worth in the way Clint Eastwood made nine films with six great ones and three under hailed, while Ben Affleck created three which were all hail worthy. Looking at it, it is indeed a good argument to raise up in another time.

Nonetheless, Ben Affleck tops The Roosevelt’s statistics for best director in the last decade.
