Word has broken overnight that Ben Affleck has been confirmed to director his own solo ‘Batman’ film as part of the DC Extended Universe.

Warner Bros. chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara confirmed during an event as part of the CinemaCon currently happening in the US. No news yet on which of the two previously announced unnamed slots in the DCEU (more on that here) this film will take.

Affleck is currently here in London where the ‘Justice League Part One’ film began shooting this past Monday.

His big screen Batman can next be seen in the ‘Suicide Squad’ film due in cinemas in August. Here’s a look at the latest trailer which features plenty of Affleck and also much more footage of 30 Seconds to Mars star Jared Leto as the The Joker:
