Kevin Smith Confirms Geoff Johns And Ben Affleck Working On BATMAN Movie Script
There's no doubt that one of the new films added to DC's slate is the Batman solo film! In his latest podcast of Fat man on Batman, Kevin Smith confirms that Geoff Johns and Ben Affleck are hard at work.
The critics may not have loved Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but they certainly loved Ben Affleck and his portrayal of the Dark Knight. Both fans and critics alike have declared Affleck as the "definitive" Batman and have been clamoring for Warner Bros. and DC to announce a Ben Affleck (hopefully directed) Batman film. It was recently announced that two new upcoming DC Films were added onto the official slate, but what they are remain a mystery.
There's no doubt that one of the new films added to the slate is a Batman solo film, and with recent news of Ben Affleck having already written a draft for the film and working with DC Comics' CCO Geoff Johns, it's only a matter of time until they reveal that the actor/director will be gearing up to take on some of Gotham's thugs.
In his latest podcast of Fat man on Batman, Kevin Smith has confirmed that both Geoff Johns and Ben Affleck have been working on a script for the solo Batman film. "He's been working on a solo script with Geoff Johns as well," revealed Smith. "Last conversation I had with Geoff Johns I was like are you working on it? and he said yeah. I said what's it like man, how do you co-write with someone? and he's going we just break it up, he takes halves and I take halves and then we write, and then we switch material, and then he goes over mine and I go over his. That sounds so f***ing fun man."
