Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman: Ben Affleck says he is "not in any hurry" to make the Batman solo movie that he is currently cowriting and is slated to direct. Affleck says, “I’m a real believer in not reverse engineering projects to meet a window or a date, but rather when you get the right story, the right idea, the right thing, then you make the movie. That’s what we’re doing, and I’m hoping to get that done. I’m spending a lot of time working on that, but also working on other stuff." [Batman News]
