Last week brought the rumor that Warner Bros.’ upcoming DC slate will see the release of not only Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, but also Shazam!, Sandman, Wonder Woman, and a Flash/Green Lantern team up movie all between 2016 and 2018. We discuss this rumored line-up on our latest episode of Most Craved. You can now add one more title to that list as Latino-Review reports that WB is eyeing 2019 for a solo Batman film starring Ben Affleck, of which the working title is said to be “The Batman.”
This release window makes sense for the project given that, as the site points out, Affleck will write, direct, and star in his next directorial effort Live By Night in the summer of 2015. That film will debut October 7, 2016 and frees up a lot of time for the studio to develop the script and get production going. There is also the possibility that Affleck could direct the project, but don’t expect any reveals or confirmation for some time.
What do you think of this latest rumor? Is 2019 too long of a wait for another Batman movie? What villain do you want to see Ben Affleck take on as the Dark Knight? Sound off below!
