'The Batman' set for 2021 release, star to be determined

Matt Reeves Talks Story Villain & Release Details of His Noir Batman Movie

Deadline reports today that Affleck is finally, and officially, done with the role he filled with mild enthusiasm across three movies - Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Justice League.

"What's exciting about Batman is how it relates to now and also how personal it can be", said Reeves. The word on the street is that we'll be getting a story based around a younger Bruce Wayne - and it'll be out in 2021.

According to Deadline, Warner Bros. will release The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves, on June 24, 2021. Also, perhaps unexpectedly, no names have yet been attached or even rumoured to play Batman - though it's sure to be a hotly-contested role. In 2016 he was appointed to write and direct the Batman movie but in January 2017 he stepped down because he had too much work on his plate. I guess we will share any further news we find as it happens, so watch this space. Still, I live in faith.

Actor Margot Robbie recently shared the first picture of her look from her upcoming DC movie, Birds of Prey.

The Wrap was first to report the rumor that the two-time Grammy nominee was going to helm Suicide Squad 2 back in October. The comics have a history of that.

What makes Affleck's turn as Batman so curious is that his Batman exists in this odd No Man's Land where he's a part of superhero movies, but he doesn't have a superhero movie to call his own. The actor previously told fans in July 2017 that he is stepping down as the director of the standalone Batman film, but he didn't reveal that he wouldn't be playing the character as well.

Ben Affleck's original casting as Bruce Wayne/Batman for Batman v Superman drew a lot of ire, but for those who didn't like the movie, I feel pretty comfortable guessing that Affleck was hardly on of its larger issues. He is such an iconic and compelling character, and one that resonates with me deeply.

"Kevin Tsujihara, Sue Kroll and Toby Emmerich said to me, 'We want you to be our Batman, '" he continued.
