Despite Ben Affleck reportedly having a script for a solo Batman film finished, "Batman v Superman" director Zack Snyder doesn't seem so certain that Affleck's screenplay will make it to the big screen any time soon. The "BvS" director spoke with JOE.ie about the possibility of Affleck squeezing a solo Batman film into his work schedule.
"I keep working on him, he's always said he's a one movie at a time guy," said Snyder, as transcribed by CBM. "He's finishing editing his film, 'Live By Night,' and then he comes to 'Justice League' and then after that, I think he's going to try and develop the story. Then we'll see if he likes it."
Regarding the current state of the solo "Batman" film, Affleck has confirmed that he was indeed collaborating with DC Entertainment CCO Geoff Johns on a script. It was rumored last summer during Comic-Con International that Affleck and Johns were co-writing the script for the next solo Batman film, which would also star and possibly be directed by Affleck. Last week, William Morris Endeavor's co-CEO Patrick Whitesell revealed that "there's a script that [Affleck's] written that is a really cool [Batman] idea, so that's out there as an option."
A solo Batman film has not been added to Warner Bros.' superhero slate, and they have not yet confirmed the existence of the project.
