Ben Affleck finally achieves lifelong dream of not having to play Batman anymore

Finally, after years of rumors, denials, and additional rumors that seemed to corroborate the initial rumors, it looks like Ben Affleck is hanging up Batman’s cape and cowl. We don’t know if the supervillain Bane escaped from a prison in Santa Prisca and broke his back, or if the loss of one of his Robins forced Affleck to give up his crimefighting career, but we do know that he’s been not-so-secretly hoping for this to happen for a long time. Either way, Deadline says that Matt Reeves’ The Batman—which we just heard is coming in 2021—will feature a younger Bruce Wayne who is not Affleck.
'The Batman' Will Feature a "Rogues Gallery" of Villains

Reeves' pic will depart from previous big-screen iterations of Batman by zeroing in on the notion that he's the world's greatest detective.

"It's very much a point-of-view-driven, noir Batman tale," he says. "It's told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it's going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It's more Batman in his detective mode than we've seen in the films."

Whoever plays Batman won't be good enough and the fan girls will cry about it. Again.

I am personally looking forward to a 956th attempt at a Batman movie.

Overdone like a Tombstone thin crust pizza baked at 500 degrees for 2 hours.

I might get some flack, and it might cause confusion, but Id vote for Ben McKenzie. The guy who plays Gordon in the Gotham show.

He voiced Batman/Bruce Wayne in Batman Year One. Did pretty good IMO.

Can we all agree that we can do without an origin story. EVERYONE knows it because they do it in every single one. We get it.

Now that I said it, I would be down for a Year One type story, even though Batman Begins is kinda that.

I wish they would dig deeper into the rogue gallery of villains. I always wanted black mask or clayface (which would be hard considering CGI) and others. Can we lay off Joker, Catwoman, Bane, etc for awhile.

Someone didnt read the link ;)

It turns out there will be multiple villains, Reeves reveals as part of a Creative Space interview with The Hollywood Reporter's West Coast TV editor Lesley Goldberg.

"You can't have Batman without a villain," Reeves tells THR. "There will be a rogues gallery."

The filmmaker says the casting process will begin shortly, and while the Warner Bros./DC film has no official release date, he could see it landing in late spring or summer 2021.

Next batman should be a shemale, because 2019.

Then nominate the movie for a bunch of academy awards just because it had the courage to be different.
