Ben Affleck May Direct and Star in 2018 Solo Batman Movie

Posted June 26, 2015 by Richard Hoskins in Comics & Manga

It has been reported that Ben Affleck will direct and star in a solo Batman film set for release on November 2nd 2018

We all knew it was only a matter of time until there would be a solo Batman film. When the new Batman was announced, most found it odd that there would be no solo film to help viewers get used to Affleck’s new caped crusader before 2016’s release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Even more unusual was that he was also set to appear in 2016’s Suicide Squad and yet again star in Justice League part one in 2017 and part two in 2019, all without a solo debut. But if you look at that line up, you see there’s a year without any Batman – 2018.


That’s when this rumored film is set to drop in. Titled The Batman, the movie will be directed by Affleck and scripted by Chris Terrio. In the past, Terrio has worked with Affleck on Argo and has rewritten the Batman v Superman  script. He is also scheduled to write scripts for both of the upcoming Justice League movies. Other than that, information on the movie is sparse, if even factual.

Exciting times for Batman fans. Who knows what this solo Batman flick could bring. Will he be up against Leto’s Joker? Will he be adventuring through Arkham Asylum? More information will likely be revealed at San Diego Comic-Con next month.
