One of the standouts in a lackluster film was the much anticipated Batman appearance and we were not disappointed. From the classic grey and black suit to the aged and less forgiving rendition Affleck portrayed, there was no doubt this was a film stolen by the caped crusader.
It’s an obvious move for Warner Bros. to continue the small bit of momentum from a lackluster film for most (though many fans were thoroughly pleased) and the right move is to go with what tends to work 9/10 times and that is Batman. Affleck directing his solo film has been what fans and critics have wanted and what they deserve. The great news about this today has been that Affleck has indeed finished a script of his own with a take on the character through his vision and with an Oscar for screenwriting (co-wrote with Matt Damon for Good Will Hunting) and directing action thrillers like Gone Baby Gone and The Town as well as Argo this is the only news we need to be sold on his possible direction of his Batman and Bruce Wayne.
Last year at San Diego Comic-Con it was reported that Affleck had been producing a script with DC’s chief creative officer Geoff Johns and fans went bananas, including myself. With the repercussions of Batman v Superman we may just see “The Batman” sooner than we expected.
