During a recent interview with the Associated Press, Ben Affleck confirmed that his solo Batman film will be called The Batman. The director/actor does say that the title could change, but as of this moment… “That’s what we’re going with.”
There are all the rumors going around about the setting and plot of the film. We’ve heard that it’s mostly going to be an original story that going to be completely crammed with villains. There’s also been rumors that the story will be set in Arkham Asylum, which it seems fans would really want to see.
The Batman is about a year-and-a-half out from starting production, and we know for sure that it will reunite Affleck with J.K. Simmons who is playing Commission Gordon. It will be released sometime in 2018.
