Report: Ben Affleck to star in and direct ‘The Batman’ in 2018

Last October when Warner Bros. announced their slate of DC Comics movies they said that a solo Batman and Superman movie would be released before 2020, they just didn’t say when. According to a new report from Latino Review, the “when” for the Batman movie is November 2018.

Collider backs up the Latino Review report and says that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice writer Chris Terrio will work on the script for The Batman, which Ben Affleck will star in and direct himself. No other details are available at this time, but an announcement at Comic-Con in just a few weeks would make a lot of sense. Stay tuned to Batman News for all the latest!
