Ben Affleck To Co-Write, Direct And Star In Solo BATMAN
In news that has surprised no one, Ben Affleck, who has his first outing as the caped crusader in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice next spring, will be not only starring in a new solo Batman film, but he will be co-writing and directing as well.
Affleck will first shoot the Denis Lehane adaptation Live By Night, then hunker down with DC Comics' chief creative officer Geoff Johns to write a fresh Batflick for the new DC cinematic universe.
No story details yet, though with Batman as a veteran vigilante in Batman v. Superman, there's absolutely no need for an origin here. After all, like Spider-man, everybody in the known universe has that stamped onto their retinas.
Meanwhile, as a fellow Ben it was a pleasure bringing this Ben related news to any other Bens out there.
