Ben Affleck's Batman Days Are Officially Over

DC Batman Movie's Director Teases Villains And Release Date

Ben Affleck will be passing the baton to a new actor to play Batman in the planned 2021 release.

Reeves boarded Batman in February 2017, taking over for Affleck who was originally set to direct off a script he wrote with DC's Geoff Johns. The movie, which is scheduled for release June 25, 2021 will focus on a younger Bruce Wayne storyline.

Details of The Batman are thin on the ground though reports in the U.S. suggest Reeves wants a younger actor to play Wayne. It's hard to be a definitive Batman when you're not the sole superhero.

It is a shame that we will never get to see Affleck get a chance to do a solo film as Batman with a director that isn't Zack Snyder.

However, Cooks has appeared to fit in well with the Rams , and not just on the field, where quarterback Jared Goff recently hailed his "chemistry" with the receiver.

Reeves described his iteration of the Dark Knight as "very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale" in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Affleck's Batman departure had been rumored for years. Still titled The Batman, the movie will be directed and written by Matt Reeves and will be produced by Reeves and Dylan Clark. After Justice League flopped and Warner Bros. was left trying to figure out their superheroes, we were left with so many questions about the future of the Dark Knight.

After years of development hell, The Batman finally has a release date. "I think there's this misconception that because I'm not directing it I'm not doing it, but I'm so excited to be Batman". The comics have a history of that. As choices go, I don't think this is a bad one, though it's also one I wouldn't necessarily call great, either. He is such an iconic and compelling character, and one that resonates with me deeply.

Ben had initially been attached to both star in and direct "The Batman", but opted to step down from his role behind the camera in 2017. It feels like a preemptive move to get out ahead of any official Marvel announcements, as we patiently wait for news after Avengers: Endgame. The studio and Reeves are ready to start putting all of the pre-production pieces together, including casting.
