Affleck was introduced as the Dark Knight for the first time in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a movie that is currently enjoying huge success at the box office.

While we know that we are going to see Affleck back in a Justice League film and a solo film looks to be on the horizon... but will Affleck direct.

It has been reported that the actor turned filmmaker has been working on a script for a solo Batman film, but it remains to be seen if he will take up the director's chair.

One man who believes Affleck should direct a standalone Batman film is Zack Snyder. Speaking to, the filmmaker said: "I keep working on him, he's always said he's a one movie at a time guy.

"He's finishing editing his film, Live By Night and then he comes to Justice League and then after that, I think he's going to try and develop the story. Then we'll see if he likes it."

Affleck teamed with Snyder for the first time on Dawn of Justice, which is closing in on the $700 million mark at the global box office.

Dawn of Justice may be a film that has failed to win over the critics, but it continues to rake in the cash. However, Affleck's performance as Bruce Wayne does seem to have won over audiences and we are going to see him make a cameo appearance in Suicide Squad later this summer.

We haven't seen Affleck in the director's chair since the enormous success of Argo, which went on to win Best Picture at the Oscars. He has already finished work his next directorial outing, Live By Night.

As well as directing Live By Night, Affleck has also penned the screenplay and will star in the film. This is the second time that he has adapted a Dennis Lehane novel into a screenplay - the first being for his directorial debut Gone Baby Gone.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is out now.
