Warner Confirm Batman Solo Movie

Ben Affleck is to star in a solo Batman movie.

Rumours started last year that Warner were looking at working with the actor on a solo outing for the Dark Knight, that Affleck would star in and direct. And now, speaking at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Warner CEO Kevin Tsujihara has confirmed the speculation.

“We’re working with Ben Affleck on a standalone Batman movie.”

Short and sweet, yes, but it’s the first official confirmation. No timeframe on the film’s release has yet been given, though it would like be within the next five years and would come after The Justice League Part One, which is released in 2017.

Affleck’s performance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has garnered generally positive reviews.
