Ben Affleck to Direct Solo Batman Movie for Warner Bros.

Ben Affleck will direct a solo Batman movie, Warner Bros. Entertainment chairman Kevin Tsujihara announced Tuesday at CinemaCon in Las Vegas.

After crediting the directors of other upcoming DC Comics movies, Zack Snyder (“The Justice League”) and Patty Jenkins (“Wonder Woman”), Tsujihara said, "I’m also excited we’ll be working with filmmakers like Ben Affleck in a standalone ‘Batman.'"

The studio boss appeared to confirm reports that had been swirling for weeks, particularly since the phenomenal success of the Oscar winner’s turn as the Caped Crusader in last month’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
