It’s still unknown whether the solo movie is a direct adaptation of the Arkham Asylum video game or Grant Morrison’s graphic novel Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth.

The script is written by Affleck along with Geoff Johns, who is also the screenwriter of the upcoming Wonder Woman movie.

Though the storyline is still under wraps, the actor says that the movie would be an original story that borrows elements from the Batman comic book series. Sources said that there would probably be “a lot of Batman villains” being included in the film.
