Ben Affleck is rumoured to be starring in a solo superhero outing called 'The Batman', set for release in 2019

Ben Affleck could star in his own standalone 'Batman' movie.

The 'Argo' actor has reportedly landed his own solo outing set for 2019, which Warner Bros. is lining up to follow on from 'Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice' in 2016 and 'The Justice League' in 2017.

The rumours aren't as far fetched as they seem since the 41-year-old actor has signed on for multiple movies as the Caped Crusader.

This comes just after Warner Bros. announced their long-awaited latest DC Comics blockbuster would be called 'Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice'.

Filming has also started on the superhero team-up movie, which was written by Chris Terrio and produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder.
