It's not just a one-off...
Looks like we've got a lot of Bat-Affleck in our future. THR reports that Ben Affleck is signed for multiple films as Batman, which of course will start witn Man of Steel 2. The site notes that the talks between Affleck and the studio were kept so far under wraps that even executives at Warner Bros. and most agents at WME (where Affleck is represented) weren't even aware.
The site notes that the conversations began earlier this year when Zack Snyder checked with Affleck about potential interest, before Man of Steel had even released. The discussions revolved around the story and character.
Affleck will be shooting David Fincher's Gone Girl from September through February, and then segue straight into Man of Steel 2 through August of next year. The film is said to be filming in Toronto. The release date is July 17th, 2015.
