Leah from @MakeAWish is the real superhero. Honored to have her stop by the #BatmanVSuperman set.
Speaking to William Morris Endeavor co-CEO Patrick Whitesell, whose agency represents Ben, THR learned that Ben has already written a script for the untitled Batman reboot that he is also set to direct (and well.. star). Ben is reportedly co-writing the solo Batman movie with Geoff Johns, DC Comics’ Chief Creative Officer.
Batman’s greatest strength is that he’s always one step ahead, and it looks like the latest actor to play him has taken that lesson to heart.
In a Hollywood Reporter interview with WME-IMG’s co-CEOs Ari Emanuel and Patrick Whitesell, Whitesell reveals how many movies Affleck has currently signed up for when it comes to DC’s Caped Crusader.
“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.”
Affleck was first linked to a standalone Batman movie as star, director, and co-writer (with Geoff Johns) last summer, and Whitesell’s remarks indicate the project has progressed since then. Affleck recently told Entertainment Weekly the movie is “in development” but said he’s currently focused on finishing his adaptation of the Dennis Lehane thriller Live By Night.
“I tend to be a one-movie-at-a-time guy. So, when I’m finished with this movie, I’ll then focus on my next movie and figure out what that will be.”
In addition to the movies Whitesell mentioned, Affleck’s Batman will also make a cameo appearance in August’s Suicide Squad, which includes a number of the hero’s comic book villains as lead characters (His rumored presence was confirmed in footage from the movie released during Comic-Con last year).
As promised, The Affleck Corner gets a revamp. We wanted to put the new layout up while “Batman v Superman” is still playing in theaters so here it is. Our gorgeous header is designed by our friend Nicole. We hope you like the new ‘do as much as we do. Few things are still works in progress, particularly page contents, so please bear with us as we work to get those online and catch up on missing images in the gallery. We would like to thank all of the site visitors for the support since we launched the site. We look forward to bringing you more of Ben in support of his career going forward.
We have added a photoshoot and scans from Entertainment Weekly’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” feature spread. Ben posed with his co-stars, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Holly Hunter, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne and director, Zack Snyder.
“Sometimes you can box yourself in [with too many characters],” says director Zack Snyder. “But what’s the upside of that? What’s the positive? How do you make that challenge be the thing that makes it cooler than [any hero] could have been on his own.”
Ben appeared on ‘Good Morning America’ on March 24 to promote “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”. We have added pictures and the full clip from the recording.
