Ben Affleck has written script for ‘Batman’ solo movie; only contracted for ‘Justice League’ movies

Ben Affleguysz

Thing we probably thought we knew, but didn’t know for sure, but now is sure: Ben Affleck has written a script for a Batman movie. Thing we probably didn’t think we knew, but didn’t know for sure, but now is sure: despite having written the script for a Batman movie, Ben Affleck ain’t contracted for one.
