Ben affleck to Direct & co-write Standalone Batman movie
Looks like the early rumors of Ben Affleck direct a Batman movie were spot on. Ben Affleck is in talks to star in, co-write and possibly direct a standalone “Batman” movie.
Sources have confirmed to Variety that Affleck is in negotiations to pen the solo “Batman” film with Geoff Johns after he has finished directing “Live by Night,” which is set to begin production in November.
Warner Bros. had no comment.
Additional details are still under wraps other than the fact that Affleck will star as the Caped Crusader, a role he will first assume in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and then in “Justice League,” which bows in 2017.
