Share. Announcement made at CinemaCon.

Rumors about a "Batfleck" standalone movie began circulating last July, but the news was officially confirmed by Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara at CinemaCon today. News of the reveal at CinemaCon was first reported by Mashable, and later confirmed for IGN by a Warner Bros. spokesperson.

According to Mashable, Affleck took the stage after Tsujihara's opening words during the Warner Bros. presentation to voice his enthusiasm about the film and future ones, stating, "It's been tremendously exciting for us to be a part of the DC Universe, and we're looking forward to working on Justice League."

Last October, Affleck spoke to Total Film magazine about the idea of directing and starring in a solo Batman film, describing the idea as being like a "dream."

"The trick is, as to any movie, is to make sure that you – if you’re going to direct it – that you can make it good. You’ve got to have the right idea and the right take on it," Affleck told Total Film.

He was easily the best part of BvS.

I did geek out on the Parademons parts of the movie. I can't wait for to see how they make Darkseid look.

Well, I wish someone other than Snyder would direct it. I guess it's good that he set the visual style of the DCCU (DC Cinematic Universe, ala MCU?), but BvS was such a 'turn off your brain' movie.

I hope Spider-man will be in it.
