Update: A new report says that Ben Affleck was upset about Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara jumping the gun on the announcement.

Warner Bros. kicked off their CinemaCon presentation with a bang this year. Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara took the stage to announce a lot of things DC-related. First, Tsujihara re-affirmed the studios commitment to releasing multiple films through 2020. “It set up a great foundation for our DC slate, which includes at least 10 movies through 2020,” he said. “Our DC roster is diverse and filmmaker-driven,” said Tsujihara.

The biggest announcement is that Tsujihara confirmed that there will be a solo Batman film coming and that its star, Ben Affleck, will direct the film as well. “I’m also excited to know that we will be working with Ben Affleck on a stand-alone Batman movie,” Tsuijhara said.

There were rumors that Ben Affleck was talking and working with Geoff Johns on the Batman standalone script. If Johns is involved then expect great things especially with Ben Affleck directing the film. Affleck is a huge Batman fan and tends to create gold whenever he directs and stars (see: Argo and The Town).

What do you think? Sound off in the comments section below.

Suicide Squad will be the next DC film to be released this year with Wonder Woman and Justice League: Part One releasing in 2017.
