New Standalone ‘Batman’ Movie Confirmed!

There have been rumors swirling for a while about a new standalone Batman film but today we can finally confirm that Ben Affleck will be co-writing, directing and starring in one! Deadline reports that Affleck will be co-writing the script alongside Geoff Johns, who is the Chief Creative Officer of DC and also the writer of The Flash and Arrow episodes.

The site also states that a script could be completed before the end of the summer, just in time for Affleck to move on to direct Live By Night this Fall.

What makes this turn of events really interesting is that, according to our sources, Affleck’s initial contract for playing Batman did NOT include any solo Batman films.  The existing one supposedly only entailed Batman v Superman, a few Justice League films, and appearances in the films of others (namely Suicide Squad).  It makes you wonder how much extra, be it money or a production deal, that Ben is getting for this?

Supposedly, the standalone Batman film will take place after the events in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League: Part One, the latter of which comes out November 17th, 2017.

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice comes out March 25th, 2016.

        Just saying, the new thing is going to be crap, as was the last one, and they’re already making a third crapfest for fanboys to jerk it over before the second one is even out. It’s lame.

          Dude get a grip, they look good. If you don’t like it, please move on and beat off to your WoW Blood Elf.

            It’s funny because I don’t play WOW so I don’t know what a Blood Elf is, but you do.

    Why can’t we wait and see what the fan response to Affleck is first? Since a HUGE number of fans aren’t happy with that casting choice.
