Ben Affleck made his debut as Batman last week in the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but apparently the star is already ready for more.

According to Affleck's reps, he has already penned a script for a potential standalone Batman movie.

"He's contracted to do at least Justice League [Part] One and Two, so at least three times wearing the cape," Patrick Whitesell, co-CEO of William Morris Endeavor told the Hollywood Reporter.

"There's a script that he's written that is a really cool [Batman] idea, so that's out there as an option."

Affleck has previously been linked to a standalone Batman movie co-written with Geoff Johns, that he would star in and direct. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly Affleck noted that the project was "in development", but not much more is known about whether or not a solo Batman movie will take flight.

It is also believed that Affleck will make an appearance as Batman in the upcoming DC movie Suicide Squad, which follows super villains like The Joker and Harley Quinn and stars Jared Leto, Margot Robbie and Will Smith.
