‘The Batman’ To Film in 2019; Ben Affleck Producing
Another day, another The Batman rumor news. The latest comes from a website called Production Weekly, listing The Batman as one of many films officially slated to officially start production next year. As previously reported Matt Reeves will indeed direct but the significant part is that Ben Affleck is signed on to produce.
Since last year, it seems like every week there was rumors that Ben Affleck would be replaced in Matt Reeves’ new film. There has never been official word that Affleck if dropping out of the film. Fans were worried when Affleck decided to step down from co-writing and directing the film but now that there is more substantial evidence that he is producing, fans can start to worry a little less.
A recent poll on this site shows that 85% of fans want Affleck to return as Batman. Personally, I would love to see Affleck take at least one more crack at the role. He was definitively one of the highlights of Batman V. Superman and Justice League but I would love to see how he portrays Batman in a solo movie.
What do you think the next Batman movie will be about? Do you want Affleck to keep playing Batman? Let us know.
