Geoff Johns writing new Batman film, Ben Affleck to star and direct

Confirmed ahead of Comic-con, Ben Affleck will star and direct in a solo Batman film to follow the Justice League film.

Deadline details Affleck’s plans and how Warner Bros. is pulling together the team about Geoff Johns for the script.

batmanvsuperman-ewphoto4“…Affleck and Johns are well in synch and have more than found their rhythm. In fact, they are likely to turn in a script before the end of the summer, prior to Affleck going off to direct Live By Night in November. Affleck postponed that pic to star in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The Batman movie would shoot after he finishes Live By Night, and the plot would reflect the Batman character that emerges after Batman V Superman and Justice League…”

The production will follow Affleck’s adaptation of the novel Live By Night, which was just formally set by Warner Bros. this week. But there’s more of a development for the project that comes in the form of a co-writer with a great deal of DC experience.

2018 has been the rumored release window for a stand alone Batman feature film.

This is the news from last summer, back when fans hated the idea of Affleck as the Caped Crusader:

According to Latino-Review, the Justice League film will begin shooting next year before its potential release date of May 2017. Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘s director Zack Snyder is set to work on the untitled Justice League movie.

The Review mentioned that their unidentified sources said the title for the rumored Batman film, which Affleck would star and direct in, is currently titled as The Batman. The alleged The Batman movie is rumored to be released on the big screen in 2019.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set for release in March 2016, and Justice League is set for November 2017.
