By Matt O'Bryant

What's up guys and gals

This story was first reported by Latino-review, states that we will be getting us a brand new Batman solo film at the very latest by 2018!

Even though it was reported first by Latino-Review our good friends over at Screenrant elaborated more extensively on this project:

Latino Review is reporting that Affleck will direct and (obviously) star in The Batman, with Chris Terrio (who penned Affleck’s Best Picture Oscar-winner Argo) scripting Batman’s first spinoff in the new DC Cinematic Universe. Terror not only reworked David S. Goyer’s script draft for Batman v Superman, but he’s also writing Justice League Part One and Justice League Part Two. As for when fans can see the movie, the report claims WB is now looking at a November 2018 release date target,

Well this is some of the best news I've heard in awhile and I hear a lot of news!  Ben Affleck to direct the solo Batman film, "Holy Shit Batman"!  

Since his career resurgence Affleck has proved himself time and time again as a legit A-list actor and an incredible force to be reckoned with as a director!  His first three times as Director were just simply amazing!  His directorial debut Gone Baby Gone was an incredible top notch mystery/thriller, then he goes on to direct one of my personal favorite films of all time The Town, which got Jeremy Renner nominated for best supporting actor, just one of the best crime/drama/action films ever!  If that wasn't already enough, Affleck tops both films by winning Best Picture for his effort with Argo!  This guy is just unstoppable at this point and seeing his ability to direct amazing action and very sophisticated drama in really good films, just gets me so damn excited!  Can't wait to see his take on a Stand-alone Batman film!

We can all get a huge glimpse of what's to come with this new Batman next year when Ben Affleck puts on the cowl for the first time in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice!

Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th, 2016
