Ben Affleck won’t be hanging up the batsuit after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Justice League. In fact, he’ll create a whole new story for the superhero!
The Wrap reports that Ben is in talks to co-write, direct and star in a solo Batman film, and will work with DC Comics chief creative officer Geoff Johns on the screenplay. A well known writer and developer for DC, Geoff has written some of its best remembered comic book series including Green Lantern, Aquaman, Batman, Justice League, The Flash, and Superman. He also has written TV series superhero transfers Smallville, Arrow, and The Flash, as well as the Supergirl project with Greg Berlanti for CBS.
Plot details of the standalone film are unknown so far, but Ben will be at Comic Con this weekend to promote Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Perhaps he will comment on the news, or tease the plot to fans!
