If it moves not bad on the side of Warner and DC these past few weeks, there still remains a great enigma : How The Batman directed by Matt Reeves ?
It is a little the big question when it comes to super-heroes as well as the symptom most speaking of the failure of the DCEU. Announced in 2014, The Batman was originally intended to be produced, written and performed by Ben Affleck and have the big bad Deathstroke. And then, there started to be some complications, since Affleck retired from his position of director in 2017 after teasé all the world, Matt Reeves came on to the project and, when it was thought that this was going to unblock the situation, this was still paralyzed more.
In addition to the fact that Matt Reeves has decided to completely rewrite the film to release it from the continuity of the Justice League and make it an adventure that is totally independent, it must also be remembered that we still do not know, what time it is, if Ben Affleck will Batman or not (although the majority of the rumors are leaning toward a big “no”).
While the project remains super discreet and was not even mentioned during the Comic-Con, here is that the film resurfaced with a new rumor that could seal the fate of Batfleck, and goes in the direction of that of a few weeks ago. In fact, if you believe the site Revenge of the Fans, Matt Reeves would have rejuvenated his Batman a good fifteen years and, in the new version of the script, it would now be between 25 and 30 years. This would eliminate from the outset Batfleck. According to this rumor, the film would follow a now Batman : Year One, which recounts the beginnings of the Caped Crusader.
Of course, this is just a new rumour, and one could counter-argue that Ben Affleck could still be part of the film if the story takes place at different times of the life of the character. Whatever it is, it will still have to wait to get the final word on this whole matter, since we speak now of a shooting during the summer of 2019. Yeah, it is not yet won this story.
End of the game to Ben Affleck ?
