2016's The Accountant was a Ben Affleck-led action-thriller that grossed $155 million at the international box office against a $44 million budget.

Yet, despite being overshadowed by Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, a sequel was announced to be in development in 2017.

Fast forward to today and it appears that the sequel is finally coming to fruition.

The director of the 2016 film, Gavin O'Conner, confirmed that Affleck is coming back for The Accountant 2.

O'Connor also confirmed that The Accountant 2 is going to center more around Jon Berthal's Braxton. 

O'Conor even talks about a potential third film that he describes as "Rain Man on steroids."

Interestingly, neither Affleck nor Bernthal have confirmed that they are coming back to do The Accountant sequel.

At the moment, fans can look forward to watching Affleck put on the cowl once again as Batman in the DCEU's The Flash.

DCEU's The Flash is scheduled to premiere on November 4, 2022.
