While it’s been heavily rumored for some time, no one has had any official confirmation that DC’s Chief Creative Officer, Geoff Johns, and Batman himself, Ben Affleck, would be collaborating on a solo Batman film. However, in an interview with, Johns stated the following:

I do get to say I’m working on Batman with Ben Affleck. That gets the Thanksgiving table excited, especially my brother.

While he couldn’t comment any further on working with Affleck, it is important to note that this is the first time anyone from DC has openly confirmed the two would be working together on a solo Batman film.

Despite not being able to comment any further on the Batman news, Johns did open up more about his duties as DC’s Chief Creative Officer:

My job is to help other Warner Brothers divisions work with DC. I work with Warner TV and producers to get these shows up and running, in particular with The Flash, where I co-created the show, wrote a few episodes, wrote the pilot episode. I work with other people, Ames Kirshen in games, the studios like Rocksteady and Netherrealm, go in there on character choices, story they’re going to do and brainstorm on that, try to keep it true to comics.
