Standalone Batman film rumored for 2019

It looks as though we will have to wait another 5 years to see another Batman film.

Latino Review claims that Warner Bros/DC are continuously trying to model themselves after Marvel Studios in the sense of looking ahead. Disney and Marvel already confirmed that they are working on plans through the year 2028 while Warner Bros. and DC Comics plans seem to end just in the next couple years. We recently received a possible leak of the studios' Comic-Con plans to announce films through 2018, but that still puts them 10-years behind the curve.
Apparently there are whispers that Ben Affleck will suit up on his own for a standalone Batman film in 2019. If the Comic-Con leak is true it would be the next release after Man of Steel 2 is 2018. It would also make Affleck the oldest actor to portray Bruce Wayne as he will be 47 in 2019.

If this is true (keep in mind this is a rumor) it would give a potential filming date of 2017 after Justice League is released. It would also be the first standalone Batman since Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises was released back in 2012.
We will see Batman next in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice which is currently set for release on May 6, 2016.
