    LAS VEGAS — Tell me, Ben Affleck ... do you direct comic-book movies? You WILL.

    Warner Bros. is moving forward with a standalone Batman film with Affleck at the helm — if studio head Kevin Tsujihara is to be believed.

    During his opening remarks at the Warners' presentation at Cinemacon, Tsujihara said the studio was excited to be going ahead with the film, which has long been rumored but never confirmed — as well as an Aquaman movie by James Wan.

    Whyd they get rid of Christian Bale?

    Buttchin Ben isnt a bad Batman but Bale was better.

    I find it funny, his selection was panned the minute it was announced. And now, he's the only thing of redeeming value in the film.

    I was pretty disappointed with Batman vs Superman, but I thought Ben Affleck was a pretty good Batman. Christian Bale was the best, but Affleck wasn't bad.

    I think they tried to put too much shit in one movie w/ Supes and Batman, so maybe the standalone Batman will work better.
    Jared Leto's joker looks kinda cool, I could go for a really dark Affleck Batman vs Leto Joker movie.

    It would be nice to see more of the detective side of Batman that's always sorely lacking in the films. Also, Batman hasn't been patrolling Gotham very much. Beat up a mugger or rapist once in a while! Not everyone has to be a super villain for you to get off your ass Bruce!
