Ben Affleck became Bruce Wayne in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in which he and Superman first appeared as foes but then became allies, but next up Affleck will be appearing as the caped crusader in a solo movie.

While talking about his upcoming thriller The Accountant, Affleck also shed some light on his upcoming superhero movie that he will star in, co-write and direct. Instead of using another lengthy title for his next time as Bruce Wayne, Affleck revealed that his solo movie has a working title of The Batman.

"At least that's what we're going with now," Affleck added, per Entertainment Weekly. "I might change it."

There is still plenty of time for Affleck to rethink that (relatively boring) title. 

Although there's no set release date, The Batman is expected to hit theaters between 2018 and 2020, after The Flash movie but before the Cyborg film. Justice League is set for release in November 2017. 

First, however, Affleck will appear in the highly anticipated Justice League movie.

The first teaser trailer for Zack Snyder and DC Entertainment's new superhero ensemble movie was posted on YouTube and unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con International 2016, marking the first released footage from the anticipated film.

In the clip, Bruce Wayne a.k.a. Batman, talks about building an "alliance" of "warriors" with "special abilities" to fight against an "enemy" coming from far away. In the Justice League teaser, his character is shown talking to Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, played by fellow past co-star Gal Gadot, and getting into a physical confrontation with Arthur Currry/Aquaman, played by franchise newcomer Jason Momoa.
