Ben Affleck recently sparked some concerns that it may be awhile before we see Batman again in his own solo film. He may have just been toying with us. As it turns out, Affleck confirmed in an interview with Variety that The Batman will start shooting this spring. Affleck is set to star as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the film. He’s also writing the script for it. Joe Manganiello was also recently cast as Deathstroke.
The Variety article said, “Affleck indicated that he expected the film will begin shooting in the spring.”
Affleck elaborated, “we’re on the right track with that and everything is coming together. We’re still finishing up a script. I’m very excited.”
The Batman in 2018?
This lines right up with the recent announcement that Justice League Part 2 would be pushed back to make room for The Batman. Nothing has been made official, but it looks like we can expect The Dark Knight to once again grace the silver screen sometime in 2018.
What do you guys think of the news? I would really like for Warner Brothers to step in at this point and give us an official announcement regarding the film. I loved Affleck in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and want to see more of him as my all-time favorite character. We’d love to hear your thoughts, so join in on the conversation in the comments below and tell us what you think!
