Ben Affleck Says His Solo BATMAN Film Will Feature A 'Mostly' Original Story

While there have been several rumours about what comic book storylines Ben Affleck's untitled Batman film might borrow from, the actor says he plans to focus on something more original for his project.

There's been a lot of rumours from both fans and publications about Ben Affleck's (currently untitled) Batman solo film and what it might adapt from the comics. One of the more notable rumours was the "Under The Hood" storyline, considering we see Jason Todd's Robin suit in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. However, according to the actor, who is also directing and co-writing the film with Geoff Johns, he plans to put an original spin on the film's story. "I think what I would do, what I probably would do, is in some ways what Zack did with this movie, which is to borrow certain things from the great comic books, but create an original story around it because I wouldn't want the fans to already know the story and be familiar, but I would borrow, steal, great things that have been done before in the comics."

Of course, this doesn't rule out elements from "Red Hood" or other stories making their way into the film; Batman V Superman pulled several elements from notable comics, including The Death Of Superman and The Dark Knight Returns.  What do you think of this news? Do you want to see an original story for the film, or would you like to see a more direct adaptation of a comic-oriented story? Sound off below!
