Hotly anticipated superhero mashup Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice isn’t even nearly in cinemas yet, and already we’ve had a whole host of tie-ins and spin-offs announced – a veritable Justice League of DC superhero goodness, from Aquaman to Wonder Woman all the way through to Shazam (!) and Green Lantern (again). One of the more obvious candidates for his own series is the DC Universe’s new linchpin Batman (sorry Supes), as portrayed by Ben Affleck.
We all expected that Affleck’s Batman would eventually get his own solo outing, and surprising precisely no-one that’s been shaping up to be the case. Affleck is reportedly in talks to write and direct his very own Batman trilogy, which would see the actor under the cowl for at least another ten years. Obviously this all depends on the performance of Dawn Of Justice but a new Bat-trilogy »

Ben Affleck's 2016 will most likely be dominated by talk of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as he's not only starring as the Dark Knight in that feature, but he's also co-writing the next solo Batman feature and perhaps directing it as well. However, before Bats v Supes hits theaters on March 25, we were going to see Affleck as an accountant that moonlights as an assassin in Gavin O'Connor's The Accountant, which was originally slated for a not-so-promising January release date. No more, the movie has now shifted to October 7, 2016, only five days earlier than the Best Picture-winning Argo, though this premise doesn't exactly sound like that of an oscar player, though a cast that includes Oscar nominee Anna Kendrick and Oscar winner J.K. Simmons should definitely pique your interest. Pesonally, the one Affleck film I'm most looking forward to, though, is his adaptation of Live By Night, »

Ben Affleck is a busy, busy man, and his life has changed now that he’s joined the D.C. Comics Universe as Batman. It used to be that Affleck just acted here and there, but mostly worked on his directorial efforts that revitalized his once-ailing career (see “Argo” winning Best Picture in 2013 and the critical acclaim for “The Town” and “Gone Baby Gone”). But in a way, Batman has turned his schedule upside down. The lengthy shoot for “Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice” took up big portions this year and last, and Affleck has been looking to carve out time to direct his next film, a Dennis Lehane-penned period crime drama called “Live By Night,” While it's still on the table, the release date has been pushed back to 2017.

With the upcoming release of The Gift, and Joel Edgerton’s fantastically creepy role as Gordo, it is impressive to consider he also wrote and directed the film. Inspired by his ability to be a triple threat, we are taking a look at other actors turned directors, writers and producers who have successfully managed to prove they do not want to conform to just one role. The Gift is out in cinemas August 7th!
Affleck made his first debut as actor and writer in Good Will Hunting in 1997, where he paired with Matt Damon to tell the story about a man looking for the right direction in life. The immediate, and continued success of the film created an image of Affleck as multi and highly talented. Since then he has continued to appear in, as well as write and direct films such as Gone Baby Gone, »

As reported today by Variety, Ben Affleck will be directing Live By Night, a project he’s been meaning to work on for the past few years. But with his starring roles in Gone Girl and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s understandable that the actor/director hasn’t had too much time on his hands to work on anything else.
Now with Batman v Superman in post-production, his main focus will be this film, based on the Dennis Lehane crime novel set in the Prohibition era. Affleck, along with directing and producing, will also star in the film alongside Zoe Saldana, Elle Fanning, and Sienna Miller.
Many of Lehane’s books have been turned into films (Mystic River, Shutter Island, and as Affleck already did with Gone Baby Gone), so it’s no surprise that Affleck has gone back to adapt the novelist’s work into another »

Not content with donning the bat-suit for Batman v Superman (and the other 500 DC movies he'll no doubt have a part in) Ben Affleck is set to direct And star in a Batman movie. Affleck is also co-writing the movie alongside DC's Chief Creative Officer. Now before anyone loses their shit, keep in mind that Affleck is a talented director, actor and he's got a gold statue somewhere for writing something about a dead poet or something. The movie will take place after whatever goes down in Batman v Superman and the Justice League movie, so we're looking at a 2018 release date at the earliest While directing and acting in the same movie are a huge undertaking, Affleck has done it a number of times already and all with pretty damn epic results. The Town and Argo were all fine movies and not forgetting Gone Baby Gone (where he once again double jobbed, »

Ben Affleck's has wanted to make "Live By Night," an adaptation of crime writer Dennis Lehane's Prohibition-era gangster novel, since 2013. His busy acting slate, from starring in "Gone Girl" to upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," may have kept him from settling into the director's chair for the first time since 2012 Best Picture winner "Argo." But he will finally get back behind the camera this November, according to Variety, to helm the project now that he has the Warner Bros. greenlight. He's also in talks to direct and co-write a new Batman standalone, to star himself as the Caped Crusader. Affleck has turned to Lehane's crime novels for source material before. In 2007, he directed Casey Affleck in feature directorial debut "Gone Baby Gone," also a Boston-set noir. Writer/director Affleck will star as a rags-to-riches criminal who goes from petty thief to rum runner, alongside co-stars Elle. »
