Did you enjoy Batfleck? I did and I hope you did too, because guess what? He’s contracted for a couple of more features with the studio, Sadfleck or not.
In a report at THR, the outlet spoke with William Morris Endeavor’s CEO’s Ari Emanuel and Patrick Whitesell, here’s what they had to say on the subject:
“He’s contracted to do at least Justice League One and Two, so at least three times wearing the cape,” he says, adding, “there’s a script that he’s written that is a really cool [Batman] idea, so that’s out there as an option.”
It was reported back at SDCC last year that Affleck and Geoff Johns were co-writing a solo Batman script for an as-of-yet untitled feature that Affleck may be lining up to direct.
As I stated in my review, Affleck’s performance was one of the big highlights of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and I was particularly fond of how much his build and appearance reminded me of the Batman of the Bruce Timm classic animated series. It’s great to hear he’s sticking around, regardless of whatever behind-the-scenes changes may occur (if any) on these Justice League films.
