Warner Bros. Chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara confirmed his studio is moving ahead with Ben Affleck's stand alone Batman movie, which Ben will star in and direct.

Despite a steep decline after the opening, Batman v. Superman, directed by Zack Snyder, has grossed nearly $800 million to date.

"It set up a great foundation for our DC slate, which includes at least 10 movies through 2020," said Tsuijhara. "I'm also excited to know that we will be working with Ben Affleck on a stand-alone Batman movie."

Just recently Warner Bros. has confirmed they will add two slots for DCEU films in the future: Oct. 5, 2018 and Nov. 1, 2019. Many speculated these two untitled DCEU films are Batman stand alone movie and Suicide Squad 2.

During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, William Morris Endeavor’s Patrick Whitesell said that Affleck had written a script that is a “really cool [Batman idea],” adding that it’s “out there as an option.”

Affleck then revealed that he was working with DC Entertainment CCO Geoff Johns on a mystery project during an interview with DC All Access.

“Geoff Johns is a brilliant guy,” Affleck said. “You know he and I are working together on something and I really am excited about it, and I love him, he’s the best.

It seems that we got the script ready and confirmed by Warner Bros.
