This Tuesday, Warner Bros. CEO and chairman Kevin Tsujihara has confirmed that they will be making plans for a stand alone Batman film. One in which Ben Affleck will star in and direct.
When raving about the Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice record opening, Tsuijhara commented,
“It set up a great foundation for our DC slate, which includes at least 10 movies through 2020. I’m also excited to know that we will be working with Ben Affleck on a stand-alone Batman movie.”
Affleck is already contracted to reprise his role as the Caped Crusader for Justice League One and Two.
The solo Batman film has yet to be officially dated, but there are rumors that it will fill one of the two empty slots reserved for unnamed DC movies: Oct. 5, 2018 or Nov. 1, 2019. There are also rumors that the other slot could go to Suicide Squad 2.
The DC films already dated include Suicide Squad (Aug. 5, 2016), The Justice League Part One(Nov. 17, 2017), The Flash (March 16, 2018), Wonder Woman (June 2, 2017) Aquaman (July 27, 2018), Shazam! (April 5, 2019), Justice League Part Two (June 14, 2019), Cyborg (April 3, 2020) and Green Lantern Corps (June 19, 2020).
