Ben Affleck has announced the title of his new Batman movie… The Batman.
The Hollywood heartthrob is set to both star in and direct the upcoming stand-alone film about the Caped Crusader.
âThe movie I think is going to be called The Batman,â Ben told the Associated Press.
âAt least thatâs what weâre going with now. I might change… Thatâs about all I got right now.â
Ben, 44, also revealed that work on the script is under way.
âThe script is going well, Iâm really excited about it,â he said.
While it isnât the most imaginative name for the eagerly anticipated flick, fans have given it the thumbs up.

In the most surprising twist in years, Ben Affleck's solo Batman movie will be called… "The Batman". Seriously, though, I dig the title.
