Warner Bros. has announced that it is going on with a standalone Batman film, Justice League to be directed by Ben Affleck at the helm.
Studio Head, Kevin Tsujihara who was speaking at the Warners’ presentation at Cinemacon said the studio was excited to be going ahead with the film, which has long been rumored but never confirmed .
Affleck had previously hinted at the project during a press conference last month for Batman v Superman, where he confessed that he had learned a lot from the film’s director, Zack Snyder.
After the studio’s announcement, Affleck said, “It’s been tremendously exciting for us to be a part of the DC Universe, and we’re looking forward to working on Justice League.”
According to Mashable, this was a timely vote of confidence for Warner Bros.’ DC Comics plans, which were prematurely called into question by many outlets after critics torched Batman v Superman and audiences scattered following a huge opening weekend.
