Apr 13, 2016

Ben Affleck will indeed star and direct the next solo Batman movie according to the Warner Bros. presentation in Cinema Con in Las Vegas. Studio head Kevin Tsujihara confirmed to the audience that Ben Affleck will both headline and direct the film releasing in the next five years.

Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns are reportedly working on the script having recently handed in a draft to the studio. We expect that along with Affleck we’ll see Jeremy Irons as Alfred and J.K. Simmons as Comissioner Gordon.

Rumors are suggesting that Jared Leto‘s Joker and the Red Hood could be the villains of the film.

It’s release date is extremely likely slated for November 1st, 2019. Although, this has yet to be officially confirmed by the studio or trades.
