When Ben Affleck was cast as Batman in the ridiculously titled Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it was assumed by pretty much everyone that he’d direct the inevitable solo Bat-film. Shockingly, this has turned out to be true.
Putting the former Daredevil behind the camera is smart move, as he’s become an accomplished director in recent years. However, Affleck won’t just be directing, he’ll also be co-writing the film (something he, you might recall, won an Oscar for) with comic writer Geoff Johns. Johns has also written for numerous super hero TV shows including Arrow, Flash and Smallville. The less said about his film work (cough*Green Lantern*cough) the better.
