    Default The next BATMAN film



    Ben Affleck confirmed to direct and star in solo Batman movie

    Ben Affleck will direct and star in his own Batman movie, Warner Bros chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara has officially confirmed.

    Affleck is currently starring as the caped crusader in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He has generally been praised for his debut in the role, though Zack Snyder’s superhero epic has received short shrift from critics and looks likely to fall short of the magic $1bn mark at the box office despite a blistering worldwide opening weekend of $422.5m last month.

    But speaking at the CinemaCon event in Las Vegas, Tsujihara touted Snyder’s movie as the perfect foundation for the studio’s planned cinematic universe based on its rights to the DC Comics back catalogue.

    “It set up a great foundation for our DC slate, which includes at least 10 movies through 2020,” said Tsuijhara. “I’m also excited to know that we will be working with Ben Affleck on a stand-alone Batman movie.”

    There have long been reports that Affleck, a recent Oscar-winner for his work as a film-maker on the period thriller Argo, would eventually take charge of Batman. Last month the actor and director’s agent, Patrick Whitesell at WME-IMG, told the Hollywood Reporter that his client had already written the script for his own film.

    Affleck is also due to return as the dark knight of Gotham in two Justice League movies, in which he will team up with Henry Cavill’s Superman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman to defend the Earth, though the shine has been somewhat taken off that prospect by the derisive critical response to Dawn of Justice.

    The Hollywood Reporter suggests Affleck’s debut solo outing could arrive in cinemas for either 5 October, 2018 or 1 November, 2019, both of which have been set aside by Warner for unspecified comic book movies.

    In other Batman news, delegates at CinemaCon were treated to a sneak peek at the new Lego Batman movie, revealing the first big screen appearance for the caped crusader’s perennial sidekick Robin since Joel Schumacher’s disastrous 1997 outing, Batman & Robin. The clip reportedly reveals that the new Robin, voiced by Michael Cera, is the caped crusader’s adopted son, Batman having accidentally returned from a swanky gala some years before with the fledgling crime fighter in tow. It also emerges that Robin’s red and green costume originated as Batman’s “Reggae Man” outfit from a long ago “caper” in Jamaica.

    I think every actor in L.A. should get to make a Batman movie.

    Some of those animated DC Comic movies are better than what has hit the big screen.

    Rumor: Ben Affleck has full creative control on his Batman movie

    According to Heroic Hollywood’s Umberto Gonzalez, Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns have full creative control over their Batman movie, which Ben Affleck is writing, directing, and starring in. This rumor broke on episode #6 of Heroic Insider.

    Full creative control means that producers Zack Snyder and Charles Roven won’t be getting in Ben Affleck’s way, and he’ll be able to tell exactly the Batman story he wants to. Gonzalez says that Johns is serving as an adviser, similar to the way that David Goyer helped Christopher Nolan with his Dark Knight Trilogy.

    While nothing is confirmed at this point, it’s not hard to believe that Warner Bros. is giving Affleck a lot of (and possibly even full) creative control. In 2013 he won them an Oscar for “Best Picture” with Argo, which he directed and starred in.

    Thanks Dibbs. I listened to this soundtrack on a walkman while working in a microfilm darkroom in the 80's. Loved it... it drilled a hole in my head.

    1989 was a great time to be a Batman fan. People are so fucking jaded these days.

    Q: I just gotta know... are we gonna try to love each other?

    A: No... I'm Batman.

    Just as a warning to everyone, my anti-virus went gonzo trying to follow 47's link to the Batman origin story.

    Could be nothing, but I thought I would let everyone know that.

    Deathstroke will be the main villain in Ben Affleck’s Batman movie

    Earlier this morning Ben Affleck posted a cryptic video of Deathstroke, and now we know why!

    According to The Wrap, Deathstroke will be the main villain in Ben Affleck’s Batman movie, which he’ll direct, write, and of course, star in!

    Earlier this year, Arrow creator Marc Guggenheim was asked if Deathstroke would be coming back to the show, and he replied that the character was “tied up in another DC project”. Now we know that project is Ben Affleck’s Batman movie!

    Take a look again at the first footage of Deathstroke, which Ben Affleck shared on his social media channels this morning. It was shot on the set of Justice League, where Affleck is currently working, but is probably completely unrelated to that movie.
