Let’s just keep calm and call Batman.
Good news for those who want to see Ben Affleck star in his own superhero film because Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara confirmed at CinemaCon yesterday that the actor will be directing and starring the Batman franchise!
Despite critics’ trashing reviews about “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice”, many viewers were impressed with Affleck’s portrayal of the black caped crusader.
During the studio’s presentation, Tsujihara also mentioned that there will be “at least 10 movies through 2020” for the expanded DC Comics cinematic universe, including Affleck’s Batman project and James Wan’s “Aquaman”.
It was reported that Affleck has already began writing a movie script for the hero’s standalone movie with Geoff Johns last month. Other than that, no other information, such as the release date and movie title, have been released about the Batman solo film.
Affleck is certainly no amateur when it comes to screenwriting or directing. The actor turned filmmaker has successfully directed films like “Gone Baby Gone”, “The Town”, and “Argo”.
For those who can’t wait to see him in his Bat-suit again, the actor will be reprising his role in the upcoming DC films “Suicide Squad” on 5th August 2016 and “Justice League” on 17th November 2017.
“Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” was a box-office success, making nearly USD 800 million worldwide.
