During the studio’s panel at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Warner Bros confirmed that a standalone Batman movie is in the works with Ben Affleck. For those of you who are not familar with CinemaCon. Its the official convention of The National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO). It’s similar to Comic-con but, for theater owners. WB chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara boasted that there are 10 DC movies planned over the next five years and also said:
We’re excited to be working with Ben Affleck on a standalone Batman film.
It is unclear if Affleck will be directing the standalone film or if they (Warner Bros) are working with him as a star. Warner Bros has DC movies (that have not been specified) set for release on October 5, 2018 and November 1, 2019. This Batman movie may be released on one of those dates.
