Ben Affleck to direct, play Batman in standalone movie

Los Angeles, July 10 (IANS) Actor Ben Affleck is teaming with comic book writer Geoff Johns to co-write, direct and star in a standalone “Batman” movie.

Affleck is expected to be promoting “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” this weekend at Comic-Con in San Diego.
