Ben Affleck to Direct & Star in Stand-Alone 'Batman' Movie

Ben Affleck will direct and star in a stand-alone Batman movie, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara confirmed on Tuesday (April 12) at CinemaCon in Los Vegas.

The 43-year-old actor’s project was officially announced after the success of his latest movie Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

“It set up a great foundation for our DC slate, which includes at least 10 movies through 2020,” Kevin said (via THR). “I’m also excited to know that we will be working with Ben Affleck on a stand-alone Batman movie.”

Warner Bros. also announced two upcoming opening dates: October 5, 2018 and November 1, 2019. One date is speculated to be reserved for Ben’s Batman movie, the other for Suicide Squad 2.

    anyone but Snyder, frankly. Batffleck was really the only decent thing in BvS and while I have reservations of Affleck’s acting in general, he has directed some beautifully done films. a little colour wouldn’t hurt and less frenzied and please god don’t let the third act become a CGI mess-fest

    Rematch – toe to toe with Judge Joe Dredd?
    Lately Dredd was seen ‘in thrills we trust’, totally off script that’s regrettably ‘In God We Trust’ & ‘We’ll meet again’.

    The tech with new monitors and tv’s makes a big difference to sci-fi. It had cathode ray units in all old comics, tv shows, and then all film applications became fairly instantaneous.
    A new theory ‘less ego more awesomeness’ needs careful consideration… prolife and living out the present.
