Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Rumors of the tentatively titled The Batman having “serious script issues” were a cause for concern as it put a direct light on what many were fearing.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Ben Affleck‘s standalone film is in pretty good hands, as not only is the actor reprising his role for the solo feature, he is also going to direct it using a script he co-wrote with Geoff Johns, who will also produce alongside Jon Berg. Though we know the major players and that the antagonist would be mercenary-for-hire Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello), the official title of the movie was largely unknown. Until now.

The usually reliable Latino Review is reporting on some interesting new rumors surrounding Warner Brothers’ long-term plans for the expanded cinematic universe it is creating based on DC Comics’ stable of iconic superheroes.

The first is that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Ben Affleck will possibly both direct and star in The Batman, a reboot of the Dark Knight franchise. His Oscar-winning Argo scribe Chris Terrio (who also worked on the scripts for Dawn of Justice and the studio’s Justice League feature — the latter of which will be released in two parts with the first tentatively scheduled for a late 2017 release and the second for the summer of 2019) will write the script for a possible November 2018 theatrical release. This would put the most popular DC character in direct conflict with Marvel Studios’ eagerly awaited Captain Marvel, which will be their first female-headed blockbuster event.

BAADASSSSS!   |  

Daniel Radcliffe

Almost two weeks ago, Warner Bros.’ possible long-term film plans for their DC Comics properties was leaked and included theoretical solo movies for Wonder Woman, Sandman, and Shazam; a Flash/Green Lantern team-up movie; a Man of Steel sequel; and the inevitable Justice League.

What didn’t make the cut was the new Batman solo movie everyone knows will happen eventually, which seemed mighty odd at first until a few days ago when rumors began to spread that another cinematic reboot of the Dark Knight was being planned for 2019 and could be potentially be titled The Batman.

When The Batman does eventually get made, star Ben Affleck‘s involvement will be assured due to his multi-film contract, and another actor is already throwing his hat into the ring as a casting choice for the Caped Crusader’s famous sidekick, Robin — Daniel Radcliffe
