Ben Affleck to Direct & Star in Solo Batflick

Deadline is reporting that Ben Affleck is pretty much confirmed to be directing the solo Batman film which might be titled ‘The Batman’ due out in 2018. Not only that but he will co-write with comics legend Geoff Johns on the project.

Here’s what Deadline are saying: I’m told that Ben Affleck is teaming up with Geoff Johns to co-write a stand-alone Batman movie that Affleck will direct and star in after he completes his longstanding plan to helm his scripted adaptation of the Dennis Lehane novel Live By Night. Johns has about as much comic cred as anybody around. He’s DC Comics’ chief creative officer and has written some of its best remembered comic book series including Green Lantern, Aquaman, Batman, Justice League Unlimited, 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.

My studio sources tell me that 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.
