While this certainly isn't a confirmation that he is writing, directing and starring in the currently Untitled Batman Reboot, it certainly does hint that he's up to the challenge. The July report claimed that Ben Affleck was son "in sync" with his co-writer Geoff Johns, that they were on track to finish a screenplay by the end of the summer. Yet another report claimed that this movie would start a standalone Batman trilogy, but like all of the reports before it, that was never confirmed.

In October, another report claimed that iconic villains such as Red Hood and The Joker would appear in the movie, while the last update we received last month claimed that Suicide Squad star Will Smith will reprise his role as Deadshot in the movie. We know Ben Affleck's Batman will return in Suicide Squad, but it isn't known if he has any interactions with Deadshot.
