The Batman (June 25, 2021)
 
Quote:

A standalone Batman movie starring and directed by Ben Affleck is officially in the works, Warner Bros. chief Kevin Tsujihara confirmed Tuesday at CinemaCon.

It was reported in July 2015 that Affleck was in talks to star and direct, but Tuesday’s announcement marks the first official confirmation of his involvement. Affleck made his debut as the Caped Crusader in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” which bowed March 25.

Tsujihara first mentioned Affleck when he took the CinemaCon stage in Las Vegas, saying that the studio was excited to be moving forward on the standalone Batman film with the actor and filmmaker.

Tsujihara said the studio has committed to 10 DC films — most of which have already been announced — within the next five years, then named every movie along with their director, including Batman with Affleck.

Warner Bros. confirmed that Affleck would be directing the movie later on Tuesday in a press release.

Affleck took the stage later, along with his “Batman v Superman” co-star Amy Adams. He did not, however, go into further details on the standalone Batman movie.

Despite its massive $166.1 million opening weekend — the seventh-biggest of all time — the box office receipts for “Batman v Superman” look like something of a disappointment for Warners. It’s doubtful that the movie will reach the coveted $1 billion worldwide mark.

Warner Bros. had already planned a sprawling slate of movies in the DC universe through 2020, with “Suicide Squad” on deck. Also planned are “Wonder Woman”; “Justice League” Part One and Two, which will see Affleck reprise his role; “Aquaman”; “Cyborg”; and “The Flash.”

I don't know how long it was going to take, but about fucking time Affleck takes some directing duties in one of these films, especially one starring the Goddamn Batfleck. Argo and Gone Baby Gone are brilliant, and The Town is damn good too. And given how Terrio was the writer for Argo, it gives me great hopes for this movie.

Not sure if we'll ever see anything better than The Dark Knight, but we may get something to give it a run for its money. Now... given how almost every major Batman villain was already played in TDK trilogy or will get played in Suicide Squad... JOHNNY DEPP AS THE RIDDLER PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE?!!!

Sweet! I was expecting Ben's solo Batman in 2019 so I'll gladly take it a year earlier. I can't wait to see how his directing skills translate over into the Comic Book Blockbuster genre, he's a done a tremendous job so far with his movies but will he be able to handle the action side of things?

I'm excited for this even more now. I was already sold on anything Batman, but this seems to be the logical direction to go.Keep the subject matter dark and broody and I think he can hit the ball out of the park. Affleck has a terrific history of directing in recent years and maybe this Batman gives The Dark Knight a run for its money as far as critical acclaim goes.

I'd love to see the Court of Owls, Hush or even a creepier Scarecrow since he's one of my favorite villains. Probably wishful thinking since they'll likely just continue his storyline with Joker.

One minor quibble. The Batman as the title just doesn't seem complete without one more word:

Yes, The Goddamn Batman is box office gold. :mark: ;)

Talk shit about his acting or forehead all you want, but Affleck is an exceptional director. He'll do a great job.

Im certainly intrigued on how he will do in Batman vs Superman, so ill wait until then to judge how his take on being Batman is.

But im a fucking Batman freak, so i am looking forward to hearing more about this, what villian(s) he will use, and what direction he takes this into. Realistic like Nolan, or another way.

Besides, as a director, he rarely a miss TBH, so.

I wonder how Kevin Smith really feels that Ben Affleck stole the life he wanted.

Great news, I read it yesterday, but I really hope the next Batman Universe is similar to the Batman: Arkham City games so we can see fantasy elements like Clayface, Man-bat, and Solomon Grundy.
