Warner Bros. chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara confirmed Tuesday his studio is moving ahead with Ben Affleck’s stand-alone Batman movie, which the actor will star in and direct.
The studio mogul mentioned the movie when appearing at CinemaCon, in Las Vegas. He touted the record-opening of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, which pairs Batman (Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) on the big screen for the first time.
This isn’t the first time the prospect of an Affleck Batman movie has been raised. During San Diego Comic-Con last year, The Hollywood Reporter reported that the actor-director was developing a solo Batman project with DC Entertainment chief creative officer Geoff Johns.
