Ben Affleck has revealed that he wants to tell a completely original story for his upcoming solo Batman film.

During the press tour of ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’, Affleck spoke with Cines Argentinos saying, “I think what I would do, is in some ways what Zack [Snyder] did with [Batman v Superman], which is to borrow certain things from the great comic books, but create an original story around it,” he explained.

It’s rumored that Affleck’s Batman will be somewhat tied to the highly anticipated ‘Suicide Squad,’ which will see Aussie Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Oscar winner Jared Leto playing the Joker.

The Hollywood Reporter has speculated that we could be seeing Affleck’s Batman in cinemas late 2018/19.
