They'd be crazy not to. I think I read that they'd only signed Ben up for BvS & both Justice League films. Given the overwhelmingly positive feedback Affleck has gotten, they're no doubt proceeding with a solo film and probably signing him up for cameos in other films.

A Batman solo film written by Affleck & Geoff Johns (don't really care if Affleck directs or not) could be spectacular.

I pretty much hate Geoff Johns but if Affleck was directing, I'd be more open to it.

Really? The movie's pretty much been universally slated has it not?

The movie, maybe yes. Affleck himself has been generally seen as one of the few plus points in terms of performance and a very good batman.

I can't comment on him as batman because I didn't go to see the movie after the reviews. I really didn't enjoy him as daredevil though. I think he's a great director but I've actually rarely enjoyed his acting since he did the Kevin Smith movies.

I despised BvS but Affleck's performance as Batman was easily the best of his career and, imo, elevated him to the best Batman so far.

I think he was a good Daredevil in a bad Daredevil film.

He has always had the acting chops, he's just picked a hell of a lot of bad roles. But even still, over the past 10 years between directing and taking much better roles, he's become a terrific actor. For me, he's the best Batman yet. He completely nailed the role and character. Although I had strong issues with BvS, he wasn't one of them.

With Warner Bros. & DC snatching up J.K Simmons, they've now gone and added another Spider-Man alumni in Willem Dafoe to the cast of Justice League Part 1.

Playing a "good guy" as well which is interesting, though could be a swerve.

Booster Gold... What a fcuking weird choice. I thought they'd previously announced a Green Lanterns film and a Captain Marvel Shazam film...?
