“Batman v Superman” star Ben Affleck has already written a script for a standalone movie about the “Dark Knight”, according to William Morris Endeavor co-CEO Patrick Whitesell, whose agency represents the superstar.

On asked how many movies Affleck has signed on for as Batman, he said, “He’s contracted to do at least Justice League (Part) One and Two, so at least three times wearing the cape.”

“There’s a script that he’s written that is a really cool [Batman] idea, so that’s out there as an option,” William added.

Affleck, 43, was first linked to a standalone “Batman” movie as star, director, and co-writer (with Geoff Johns) last summer, and Whitesell’s remarks indicate the project has progressed since then.

Affleck recently said the movie is “in development” but said he’s currently focused on finishing his adaptation of the Dennis Lehane thriller “Live By Night”.
