Is Ben Affleck Already Working on the Batman Solo Movie?
Batman v Superman is finally out, and while it received godawful reviews and beat an embarrassing box office record, it's still financially successful enough that we can probably count on a few more DC movies in the next few years. Now, Ben Affleck is working on another project with DC's Geoff Johns, and although he doesn't confirm that it's the Batman solo movie, it sure sounds that way:

Opening quote
"Geoff Johns is a brilliant guy," Affleck told DC All Access. "I consider him to be the most valued resource on all things comic book, and every time I like something in the comic I always mention it he goes, 'oh yeah, I wrote that.' Now I just think he's bulls******* me and he says he wrote everything. You know, he and I are working together on something and I really am excited about it, and I love him, he's the best."
Closing quote

Considering that he said this to DC All Access and praises Johns's comic book knowledge, it's probably safe to say they're working on a DC project together. I suppose there's a chance that Affleck might be lending a hand to another DC movie, but Occam's razor tells us he's talking about the Batman movie. 

It only makes sense for DC to move forward with the Batman movie ASAP, since he and Wonder Woman (who's already hard at work at her own movie) were by far the best parts of Batman v Superman. And I really hope Affleck gets a chance to write and/or direct, both because he's an accomplished director and because he clearly knows what's wrong with Batman v Superman:


Chin up, Ben Affleck, at least everyone loved you as Batman.

Batman v Superman is now out in theaters, while the Batman solo movie is slated for sometime in 2018.
