And then he went on to finally confirm a long-running rumor.
“We’re working with Ben Affleck on a standalone Batman movie,” the CEO announced.
Speculations of a new Batman film has long been rumored but was never confirmed, until Affleck gave a hint on the project at a BvS press conference last month. In addition to that, there have been talks that Affleck and DC Entertainment COO Geoff Johns were working together on the script. Affleck said that “Geoff Johns is a brilliant guy. He and I are working together on something and I really am excited about it, and I love him, he’s the best.”
