Geoff Johns Praises Affleck; Talks Working On The Solo Batman Film

Geoff Johns is currently on the DC Universe: Rebirth press tour. Last night he signed a few copies of Rebirth at New York City’s, Times Sqaure, branch of Midtown Comics at midnight last night. But, Johns also made a stop at Late Night With Seth Meyers.

Seth Meyers asked him a few things a bout Rebirth and then he finally asked him the question on every fanboys mind, “are you working on the solo Batman Film with Ben Affleck?” Johns not only confirms it, he gives Affleck high praise.

“He’s amazing, but he’s amazing at dialogue, when he reads the dialogue I just sit there going ‘wow, I’m talking to Batman!’”.

He confirmed this once before to Comicbook, but this was the first time he’s said it on video. You can check out the video with the full interview below.

Although, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was hit with a cold response from fans and critics, Affleck’s portrayal of the Caped Crusader was one of the shining lights in the the movie. Ben Affleck is a critically acclaimed Director, has an Academy Award for Screenwriting and won Best Picture for Argo. Geoff Johns just wrote, possibly, the best comic of all time with DC Universe Rebirth. It’s safe to say the Solo Batman film is in good hands.

The solo Batman films was announced by Warner Bros. at Cinemacon. Ben Affleck was announced to Direct, write, star and produce. The film currently has no release date, although, it is assumed to be one of the untitled DC Films freshly updated slate.
