Ben Affleck Likely to Star as Batman in Standalone movie
Actor ‘Ben Affleck’ is teaming with comic book writer ‘Geoff Johns’ to co-write, direct & star in a standalone Batman film.
Additional details are still under wraps other than fact that Ben Affleck will reprise his role of Caped Crusader, which he will 1st assume in Batman v Superman; Dawn of Justice and then in Justice League.
Warner Bros has not commented on news yet.
Given how much time and effort goes into directing, it may be a long as before Ben Affleck thinks of writing. He is currently focused on the directing Live by Night, based on Dennis Dennis Lehane’s Prohibition-era crime novel, off the ground.
Ben is expected to support Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice this weekend at Comic-Con in San Diego.
