You have got to appreciate the confidence of Ben Affleck!! He is still one of the most mocked and trolled actors in the world. His memes for accepting the role of Batman are still making rounds in the internet. But now the latest news is that his will be scripting, directing and acting in his own batman movie.
According to the reports, the actor and Oscar-winning director is reported to have almost finished the script, which he is writing with DC Comics’ chief creative officer Geoff Johns, who has worked on well-known comic series including Aquaman, Batman, Justice League, The Flash and Superman.
It is thought the plot will pick up from Batman’s character development in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, which is not due out until 2017.
Affleck will begin production on the film after directing Live By Night, his scripted adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s novel of the same name.
The actor will star alongside Henry Cavill as Superman in Dawn of Justice, as well as Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor) and Jason Momoa (Aquaman).
He is also billed to appear as Batman in Suicide Squad in 2016, starring Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Margo Robbie (Harley Quinn), Will Smith (Deadshot) and Jared Leto (The Joker).
