According to Entertainment Wise on Jan. 5, since Ben Affleck was announced to take on the Batman role in Zack Snyder's "Batman vs. Superman" film, he's now being "tipped' into making his own solo franchise after the sequel. Filmmakers are highly confident that Affleck could easily have what it takes to be the next singularly-played Dark Knight.

Though when the announcement was made he would play the character, he received a lot of opposition from fans, but now filmmakers see promise in Affleck.

A writer for Batman On Film's Bill "Jet" Ramey, mentioned he has his "fingers and toes crossed" when it came to Affleck moving forward for solo films. Ramey also mentioned, "I don’t think he’ll play Batman forever (pun kinda intended). If I had to guess, I’d say five: BvS, three solo Batman films, and another DC team-up movie".

Ramey even answered questions about the Synder sequel and admitted that the film is mainly about Superman.

"It’s a Superman film – a Superman film that just so happens to include Batman and Wonder Woman – but a Superman film nonetheless".

Also, Lex Luthor return as the main villain, some may have known him to have been played by Gene Hackman in the original "Superman" film. Also, there is an additional villain that's yet to be revealed and Ramey isn't at liberty to say.

Gal Gadot, though thought to be too petite for the role, will be joining the sequel cast as Wonder Woman and will be rather comparable to Scarlett Johansson's role as the Black Widow from "The Avengers".

"Batman vs. Superman" opens in theaters come July 17, 2015.
