Not long ago WB outlined their upcoming future movie slate for their upcoming cinematic universe, which features Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Justice League and possibly Green Lantern.
One thing they didn’t detail was a solo Batman film or even a solo Superman film. That’s kind of odd, considering how widely popular both are and factoring in the reboot of Batman’s character — to be played by Ben Affleck.
Also, Man of Steel had some problems that needed correcting and putting him smashed into a sequel/showdown with Batman to lead into Justice League isn’t exactly a great idea in terms of figuring out the character.
Now, sources are spreading around a big rumor that WB plans to release a film titled The Batman in late 2018, which would put it up against Marvel’s Captain Marvel.
Marvel would obviously lose to one of the most popular comic book characters of all-time, which makes this rumor sound more and more like truth.
Also, rumors are suggesting that Ben Affleck will direct and Chris Terrio will write.
I sure hope these rumors are true, because rebooting Batman requires several solo films to truly give the character the detail and time needed to establish everything properly.
