"This is an audience movie. People actually like this movie," Ben Affleck a.k.a the newest Batman, endearingly called Batfleck, told Jimmy Fallon about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Critical consensus of BvS, which may be "Lex Luthor's gay fan fiction," has directly opposed audience's reception of the box office record breaker. Fans of Batfleck's portrayal of Bruce Wayne/Batman will be happy to know they may get to see more of Affleck as Batman in a movie that's not Justice League. Affleck is said to have written a standalone Batman movie.
In a cover story for The Hollywood Reporter with William Morris Endeavor's co-CEO Patrick Whitesell Affleck's script for a standalone Batman was revealed. Whitesell told THR Affleck would be donning the Batsuit at least on two other occasions saying he had signed up for Justice League One and Two.
"There's a script that he's written that is a really cool [Batman] idea, so that's out there as an option," Whitesell revealed. THR previously reported the Academy Award-winning Affleck (He won Best Original Screenplay for Good Will Hunting and Best Director for Argo) was not only working on a solo Batman project with DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns but that there was talk of him directing it and starring in it.
Did Affleck write the script while wearing the Batsuit? According to reports he wore it when he was rewriting the BvS script, so, maybe.
BvS may have not helped DC wash Marvel, but there's still Suicide Squad.
