Ben Affleck says he's working on "something" with DC's Geoff Johns

Ben Affleck may have just confirmed that he is indeed co-writing the script for the solo Batman film with DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns.

Back in July it was reported that the actor is penning the next standalone Bat flick (which he may also direct) with Johns, and during an interview on DC All Access, Affleck said "Geoff Johns is a brilliant guy. I consider him to be the most valued resource on all things comic book. And every time I like something in a comic I mention, he goes, 'Oh yeah, I wrote that.' Now I just think he's bullsh*tting me, because he says he wrote everything. He and I are working together on something and I really am excited about it and I love him. He's the best."

That "something" is more than likely the previously announced untitled Batman movie. Although the project doesn't even have a release date yet, I think Warner Bros. and DC should really get the ball rolling on the solo film and capitalize on Affleck's well-received turn as The Dark Knight, since his performance is apparently one of the few bright spots in BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. What would you like to see in the next Batman movie?

While this is probably going to be a slew of new Batman films, I really wish that one of them is going to be a movie adaptation of Batman & The Outsiders. We already have Katana on Suicide Squad, and how cool would it be to see Metamorpho, Black Lightning, and Geo-Force on screen together with Batman? Okay maybe not Geo-Force. We can kill him halfway through the movie.

And I'd be excited about this if BVS was a completely different movie and if Geoff Johns' best work wasn't 7 years in the past. Wonder if we'll see the Anti-Monitor or Superboy Prime in this?

Colour me intrigued

I liked Ben Affleck's work on THE TOWN and ARGO, and Geoff Johns is a genius. This should be a great collaboration.

Great News. Geoff Johns is a Genius. I just wish he would have been involved with Man of Steel and Batman Vs. Superman instead of Goyer.

If he were to write AND direct as well, I think he could easily end up making the best Batman film thus far while ALSO playing the best best interpretation of Batman if his performance in Dawn of Justice is anything to go by.

And as far as what I would want to see in Affleck' solo Bat film, it would be to see him adapt the Under the Red Hood storyline.

Quit crapping on the movie in your articles

Every article about you all write about news takes a little dig at the movie. I get that you, YOU, didn't like this movie, but as you can see in your comments sections, there are those of us who are very passionate about how much we loved this movie. Maybe keep your opinion to yourself and just post the news before you become the "FOX News" of websites.

I agree I noticed leading up to the release there was always a negative tone on the articles about DC or Batman v Superman.

Too late, joblo is already a pale imitation of what it once was.

Oh please...I could discuss for hours why this movie was an awful awful mess. You're clearly just a diehard DC fan that doesn't understand the art of filmmaking. There was nearly NOTHING redeeming about BvS.

Yeah, I'm guessing it's the new Batman project as well.
