Warner Bros. executives have rumored to have seen an unfinished private screening of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And according to the report, the executives were so impressed that they gave the film a standing ovation.
What's interesting here is how the source claims that Ben Affleck's Batman was the best thing about the whole movie, and as such, the Warner Bros. suits and ties went ahead and increased Affleck's deal.
The plan right now is to add an additional three Batman movies to the DC Extended Universe with Affleck as the leading man. The actor could play Batman for the next ten years or more, which is pretty exciting in our eyes.
We also understand that Warner Bros. wants to create the DC Extended Universe(DCEU) around the Batman character, so it means there's a good chance Ben Affleck could show up in all the DCEU films going forward until the end of Justice League: Part Two.
According to the guys of Warner Bros., Affleck's take on the Batman character is the definitive Batman, so we can see why they would want to make him the leading man in the DCEU going forward.
Since Ben Affleck is getting the chance to be in a trilogy of Batman movies, we have to wonder if Henry Cavill will ever get the opportunity to helm a Superman solo movie in the years to come. Fans have been talking a lot about the Man of Steel 2, and no, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is not it.
Ben Affleck is expected to show up in Suicide Squad after his significant role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He's also set to reprise his role as Batman in Justice League: Part One, and Justice League: Part Two.
No word at the moment if he will make an appearance in Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, The Flash, and Shazam.
We doubt he will show up in the Green Lantern Corps film since it is coming after Justice League.
