Better get used to the new big screen Batman Ben Affleck because it sounds like he's going to be around for awhile.
"Sources say that Affleck has been signed for multiple movies, should sequels continue to proliferate. The talks were so secretive that many Warners execs and most WME agents remained unaware of their existence," claims The Hollywood Reporter. Talks with Affleck began earlier this year when director Zack Snyder checked Affleck's interest. Early talks circled around story and character.
THR says Affleck will shoot David Fincher's Gone Girl this September through February before segueing to shoot Man of Steel 2/Superman vs. Batman from February through August 2014. The superhero pic will reportedly lens in Toronto.
Affleck is expected to be doing pre-production work on his next directorial effort -- the Prohibition gangland film Live By Night, which he'll shoot next fall -- while simultaneously filming his Batman role.
The Man of Steel sequel opens July 17, 2015.
