On April 12 Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara took the stage at CinemaCon in Las Vegas and announced that a Ben Affleck solo Batman movi e is in the works. He also spoke about the record-breaking opening weekend that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had.
“It set up a great foundation for our DC slate, which includes at least 10 movies through 2020,” Tsuijhara said. “I’m also excited to know that we will be working with Ben Affleck on a stand-alone Batman movie.”
Affleck will co-write his Batman movie with DC Comics CCO Geoff Johns and is expected to direct it as well.
