It was reported in July 2015 that Affleck was in talks to star and direct the film, but Tsujihara’s announcement marks the first official confirmation of his involvement.

Affleck made his debut as Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Tsujihara first mentioned Affleck when he took the CinemaCon stage, saying that the studio was excited to be moving forward on the standalone Batman film with Affleck.
