Rumors are swirling that Warner Bros. are planning to keep Ben Affleck in the batsuit for a while. It appears they may be eyeing a 2019 release date for a solo Batman film with Affleck also in directors chair.
According to a report from Latino-Review, a standalone film featuring Affleck as Batman is being tentatively called The Batman. Due to the production schedule of the Batman vs. Superman film and then the Justice League film, that would put the solo film going into production sometime in 2017 or 2018.
The solo film has not been confirmed by any of the parties involved. Plus fans have not yet been convinced of Affleck’s ability to play the Dark Knight.
Considering the solo Batman film would still be another 5 years away, do you think it could happen or that Affleck is planning that far ahead? Would you be willing to see that film?
