HOLY BREAKING NEWS BATMAN! Reports have emerged confirming that Ben Affleck has written a Batman script!
It has been widely rumoured that Batfleck was going to have a heavy hand in not only playing the lead role, but also the creative side of the inevitable Batman solo project. Now it has been confirmed that Ben Affleck has actually written a full script for a Batman movie. Speaking with THR, WME’s Patrick Whitesell confirmed the big news:
“He’s contracted to do at least Justice League One and Two, so at least three times wearing the cape. There’s a script that he’s written that is a really cool [Batman] idea, so that’s out there as an option.”
Considering that Batfleck was one of the most highly rated aspects of Batman v Superman with many lauding him as the best Batman & Bruce Wayne we have seen on-screen, it makes sense that despite a packed schedule Warner Bros would pursue a Batman solo adventure starring Affleck. If this script is the one reported to have been constructed with Geoff Johns then we might really be in for a treat. Affleck seems to have a great understanding of the Batman character from what he has mentioned publicly before so it may well be a good thing that he is taking a hand to moulding the film along with starring in it.
More on this as it breaks, but call us excited!
