New Batman Solo Film Coming in 2019??


We all knew this was coming at some point, but this is the first time we’re hearing rumbles and actual rumors. According to a story published by Latino Review, DC is planning a stand-alone Batman film called The Batman in 2019.

"According to sources, I’m hearing the studio is eyeing 2019 for the standalone Batman film and I even got a working title: THE BATMAN.The question is whether Affleck will direct the stand aloneBatman film. It is a good possibility since Affleck is now one of the studio’s signature stars headlining as one of its signature characters whose last directorial effort Argo took home the best picture Oscar. Remember, Affleck’s deal to play Batman took months for his agent at WME and attorney at Ziffren to close. Perhaps the contract contains a clause or a separate rider in his deal for directing services."
