Ben Affleck set to star in and direct solo Batman film
The caped crusader returns
As Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, starring Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck as Batman, is in the can and hyped for release next year, reports are coming in that a new solo Batman film is already in the works. Set to be titled The Batman, the film will not only see Affleck reprise his role as the billionaire superhero but he will also direct the film.
Affleck received a lot of heat after being announced as the new actor with the keys to the batmobile, and he was the first to admit that a superhero role was a new challenge for him, but no-one can deny his directing credits, after he scored an Oscar win for his work behind the lens for Argo. The Batman is slated to hit cinemas in 2018.
