Ben Affleck reportedly set to direct solo Batman film

Batman v Superman trailer 1 - 10

When cameras finally roll on a new solo Batman film, it may be Ben Affleck both in front of and behind the camera.

According to a new report from Deadline, Affleck is currently wrapping up a script for the solo Batman film in the new DC Cinematic Universe with studio honcho Geoff Johns. So it sounds like Affleck’s name will be all over this film should this report pan out.

We will get our first taste of Affleck as the Dark Knight in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and then we know he will also appear in Suicide Squad. Before he even gets to his solo film – which is targeted for 2019 – he will also appear in at least one Justice League movie, not to mention a non-DC film he will be directing and starring in called Live by Night.

Apparently it’s safe to say that Warner Brothers has a lot of faith in Affleck’s take in the character, now it’s just the audience he has to win over.
