It’s finally “official”! Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara just took the stage at CinemaCon in Las Vegas and announced that a Ben Affleck solo Batman movie is in the works. He also spoke about the record-breaking opening weekend that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had.

“It set up a great foundation for our DC slate, which includes at least 10 movies through 2020,” Tsuijhara said. “I’m also excited to know that we will be working with Ben Affleck on a stand-alone Batman movie.” You can check out a list of those 10 movies and their release dates here.

Ben Affleck and Amy Adams joined Tsujihara on stage to show footage from the DC Extended Universe. From reactions online, it sounds like it’s footage we’ve mostly seen before, though some of the stuff they showed from Wonder Woman might have been new.

Ben Affleck is co-writing his Batman movie with DC Comics CCO Geoff Johns. He’s expected to direct it as well, though Tsujihara did not explicitly confirm that tonight.
