[Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870) is still the hype of the week. Whether it be good or bad the film is still talked about by many. One of the most talked about aspects of the film however is Batman. If this is the most brutal Batman or not it seems many people are pleased with Affleck's performance. This being said the request for a solo Batman film has been getting bigger and stronger. It seems that those requests and cries are being heard as a script has already been written.
The news comes from a Hollywood Reporter cover story with William Morris Endeavor's co-CEOs Ari Emanuel and Patrick Whitesell. According to William Morris Endeavor co-CEO Patrick Whitesell, whose agency represents Affleck there is already a script out there.
He’s contracted to do at least Justice League [Part] One and Two, so at least three times wearing the cape.” Whitesell added, “There’s a script that he’s written that is a really cool [Batman] idea, so that’s out there as an option.
This is somewhat of an awesome announcement of sorts and something many of us might have seen coming. The reports of a solo Batman film being written and directed by Ben Affleck go back to Comic Con last summer. Affleck however has recently told EW that the film is in development but he is still finishing his other project Live By Night.
I for one am on board if Ben Affleck indeed writes, directs, and stars in the solo Batman film. I believe his representation of Bruce Wayne and Batman is the best live action of the character. The actor/director has also proven to be an amazing director and writer with projects such as Argo and The Town. We can only wait and see when this Batman solo film will be released and by who. In the meantime we will have to wait for Suicide Squad for more Batman where he will have a cameo appearance.
