Ben Affleck Has Written His Own Solo ‘Batman’ Script

By March 30, 2016

Out of all of the disappointing aspects packed into Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the only real shining light was Ben Affleck’s performance as Bruce Wayne and Batman, including his chemistry with Jeremy Irons’ Alfred, and even if the writing and characterization of the character was fairly off the mark.

More than for itself even, Batman v Superman showed some real promise when it comes to a possible Batman solo film, which Affleck has been heavily rumored to be directing and possibly writing at some point, though no film or release date has been confirmed by the studio yet.

While recently speaking with THR though, WME’s co-CEOs Ari Emanuel and Patrick Whitesell revealed not only how many DC films Affleck is signed on for, but also that he has in fact written a script for a solo Batman film:

“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.”

There has already been a loud outcry from DC fans to see a standalone Batman film from Affleck, since the theatrical release of Batman v Superman, and if he’s already written a script for the film, it may be further into development than we had even thought before now. Even more than that too, it also continues to prove how much passion and knowledge of the character that Affleck has clearly put into his performance as The Dark Knight, which is why I think he managed to stand out from the rest of Batman v Superman‘s mundane plot and characters.

So basically what I’m saying is, please let this happen.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is in theatres everywhere now.
