Ben Affleck Is Directing the Solo Batman Movie
Holy amazing news, Batman! There were recent rumors that Batman himself would helm the 2018 solo film, and we hoped against hope that it was true. Now, according to Deadline, it's been confirmed that Affleck will both direct the film and co-write it alongside Geoff Johns.

We couldn't be happier about this; Affleck is a talented actor, but he's an even better director, and his dark, grounded aesthetic would be perfect for the Caped Crusader. He will reportedly start work on the film after he finishes work on his latest Dennis Lehane adaptation, Live by Night.

And Johns is a force to be reckoned with as well, as he is DC Comics' chief creative officer, and has worked on classic DC comic characters like The Flash, Green Lantern, WB shows like Smallville, Arrow, The Flash, and the upcoming Supergirl series.
