Following Batman Vs. Superman, it's learned Ben Affleck is contracted on for at least two more movies with Justice League Part 1 and Part 2.

It's also learned that Ben Affleck has written his own Batman movie script, though THR notes it's only an option for Affleck and he is not contracted on a solo Batman movie.

"He's contracted to do at least Justice League One and Two, so at least three times wearing the cape," he says, adding, "there's a script that he's written that is a really cool [Batman] idea, so that's out there as an option," Patrick Whitesell, co-CEO of the talent agency, William Morris Endeavor (WME), said.

Ben Affleck recent teased he is working on something with DC Entertainment and comics writer Geoff Johns, which also has been speculated to be a new solo Batman movie.

Affleck will also be appearing in August's Suicide Squad.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is currently in theaters also starring Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot.

Justice League Part 1 is due out November 17, 2017; Part 2 hits in 2019.
