According to a recent report from Heroic Insider, we’ve learned that Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns are rumored to have “complete creative control” over the solo Batman film they’re developing. If this is truly the case, it means that Zack Snyder probably won’t have that much involvement with the movie outside of some sort of producer credit. For those of you who didn’t like Batman v Superman, I’m sure that is music to your ears.
The report goes on to say that Affleck is leading the charge on the development of the project and that Johns is more of a consultant, who will help provide any necessary references to comic book lore, and he’s the perfect guy for that. It’s great to hear that Affleck will have all the freedom he needs to bring this Batman film to life. The guy is a top-notch filmmaker who was absolutely awesome as Batman and I’m excited to see where he ends up taking the story of this version of the Dark Knight next. I don’t think Affleck would have done the project had the studio not agreed to give him this kind of freedom.
