Geoff Johns confirms that he's already working with Ben Affleck on the upcoming solo Batman movie.

It’s been confirmed for a little while now that Ben Affleck is working on a solo Batman movie, that he’s writing and is likely to direct.

He’s certainly set to star in it, although right now he’s reprising the role of Batman in the currently-filming Justice League - Part One.

In the last week or so, Geoff Johns – DC Comic’s Chief Creative Officer – has signed up to co-steer the DC movie universe. And in a new chat with ComicBook.com, he’s been talking about his new role, and the upcoming solo Batman adventure.

Batman: new DC movie chief is working on Ben Affleck solo film © Den of Geek Batman: new DC movie chief is working on Ben Affleck solo film “My job [at the moment] is to help other Warner Brothers divisions work with DC.

I work with Warner TV and producers to get these shows up and running, in particular with The Flash, where I co-created the show, wrote a few episodes, wrote the pilot episode”.

“I work with other people, Ames Kirshen in games, the studios like Rocksteady and Netherrealm, go in there on character choices, story they’re going to do and brainstorm on that, try to keep it true to comics”.

When it comes to the new role though? “I do get to say I’m working on Batman with Ben Affleck. That gets the Thanksgiving table excited, especially my brother!”, he said.

Johns is definitely working on the new Batman movie? That’s a positive start as far as we’re concerned.

We’ll keep you posted as we hear more.
