All signs are pointing to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice being a kick ass entry in the DCCU, but it looks like the film's crew and Warner Bros. executives have seen a screening of the movie, where the working cut of the movie had a standing ovation from those that saw it.

Ben Affleck has kicked enough ass in Batman v Superman that Warner Bros. wants Affleck to not only direct a solo Batman movie, but they want him for an entire Batman trilogy. Den of Geek has the rumor, saying that Warner Bros. was already interested in Affleck starring, writing and directing a solo Batman movie, but now Warner Bros. wants three Batman movies.

It also makes sense, as over the weekend Affleck's upcoming movies 'The Accountant' and 'Live by Night' were delayed, giving him room to work and be involved (obviously quite heavily) in the new Batman movies. The first solo Batman movie is rumored for sometime in 2018, but we should hear more about this closer to the release of Batman v Superman.
