Ben Affleck, or "One of the Batmen," as his fans now call him, has written his very own Batman screenplay. Wow. That guy really loves Batman! William Morris Endeavor's co-CEO Patrick Whitesell says that it's "a really cool [Batman] idea" and, in addition to Justice League One and Two, which Ben is contracted to do, his own screenplay could give him an additional opportunity to wear a cape. (Like, the Batman kind. Not the cashmere kind that go in and out of style. Though he probably has one of those, too.) According to the Hollywood Reporter, last year, Baffleck was also "developing a stand-alone Batman project with DC Entertainment CCO Geoff Johns, with Affleck tentatively attached to direct, as well as star in." We said it before, and we'll say it again. That guy really loves Batman.
