Geoff Johns, who was recently said to have been appointed to co-run DC films, confirms involvement in the new Ben Affleck Batman movie.

Johns also talks a bit about being the DC Entertainment chief creative officer, but it's noted he wouldn't confirm being the new head of DC movies.

My job is to help other Warner Brothers divisions work with DC. I work with Warner TV and producers to get these shows up and running, in particular with 'The Flash,' where I co-created the show, wrote a few episodes, wrote the pilot episode."

"I work with other people, Ames Kirshen in games, the studios like Rocksteady and Netherrealm, go in there on character choices, story they’re going to do and brainstorm on that, try to keep it true to comics.

"I do get to say I'm working on 'Batman' with Ben Affleck. That gets the Thanksgiving table excited, especially my brother."

No release date has yet been announced for the new Batman movie, which is said to possibly feature a Red Hood storyline or even all the Batman villains. According to previous reports, Johns co-wrote the script with Affleck, who is also supposed to direct. A few years ago we were even first told the title might be "The Batman."
