If you liked Ben Affleck in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice then here’s a little good news for you, he’s throwing the black cape on again for a solo Batman flick.

The announcement comes less than a month after his debut as the Bat of Gotham, with Warner Bros’ boss Kevin Tsujihara confirming Affleck will both star and direct the movie, The Guardian reported. 

Speaking at CinemaCon, Tsujihara said Batman v Superman set the foundation for the DC Cinematic Universe, which will include a Batman flick, a Wonder Woman movie, the emergence of Aquaman and the formation of the Justice League.

“I’m also excited to know that we will be working with Ben Affleck on a stand-alone Batman movie.”

Henry Cavill Facebook post

Henry Cavill posted a picture to Facebook this week, which suggests the Man of Steel may not be six-feet underground for too long.

The photo of Cavill mid-workout is captioned: “1st week of training done. 7 days, 9 workouts and a whole lot of food! #‎Superman‬ ‪#‎JusticeLeague‬ ‪#‎SupermanTraining‬.”

Looks like he’s getting Superman fit again.
