So, after all the waiting and hoping, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is out there for the world to see this weekend and – love it or hate it – there’s no denying that whatever issues it has, Ben Affleck’s performance as Bruce Wayne and Batman sure isn’t one of them.

He manages to nail Wayne’s playboy persona while being a brutal, terrifying Batman too. And the good news? Well, it looks like he’s sticking around in the DC movie universe, although he’s not saying in what capacity.

Although, come on, it’s got to be the Batman standalone movie, right? Right? Hello? Anyway…

Talking to DC All Access (full video below) he says: “Geoff Johns is a brilliant guy, I consider him to be the most valued resource on all things comic book. And every time I like something in a comic I mention, he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I wrote that.’ Now I just think he’s bullsh@#*ing me, because he says he wrote everything.

“He and I are working together on something and I really am excited about it and I love him. He’s the best.”

It has long been speculated that Affeck and Johns are writing the Batman script(s) and we’re guessing/hoping that this is confirmation that that’s happening as we type.

Are you excited to see Affleck in the suit solo? Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
