    The Batman (2019) Yeah, seriously

    The word over at Latino Review is that Warner Bros. has a plan for a standalone Ben Affleck Batman movie, in addition to his appearances in Batman vs. Superman and Justice League. The film is supposedly scheduled for 2019 and will be called The Batman, which I like because I'm a fan of definite articles in front of superhero names. The Aquaman, The Doctor Strange, The The Thing.

    More on the rumor:

    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.

    Let's break it down. Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice League should be ending production in December, then they break for the holidays and go into production on Justice League in the winter of 2015.

    Affleck then takes a break from donning the cape and in the summer of 2015, he writes, directs, and stars in his period gangster film Live By Night. The film's scheduled to hit theaters in October 2016. The studio has the time after Live By Night's release to develop the screenplay to the standalone Batman film ready to start production either in 2017 or 2018. It wouldn't surprise me if they actively start developing the script after Justice League or sooner.

    This is obviously super rumor-y, especially since, according to Latino Review, the scoop is subject to change and "years may pass before [the] story's official confirmation." I'm just delivering the rumor to you guys to do with what you will. Conjecture, ignore, scoff, use as an excuse to rant for the hundredth time about how there are too many characters in Batman vs. Superman. This post is your oyster.

    Cool. I hope it isn't as boring and pretentious as the Nolan movies.

    You know I'm down for a new Batman movie, but there's nothing to get excited or disappointed about at this point, really. No clue if Affleck will be there and if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Not the coolest title, but it's better than fucking Dawn of Justice.

    I want a new Batman to be akin to the cartoon; that's the purest Batman to me.

    You mean the 90s animated series? Yeah, I loved that show as a kid and still love it today. That and the Arkham games are the best versions of Batman, IMO.

    Let'a not forget some of the DCU animated movies like Under the Red Hood or Justice League DOOM/WAR. That's some damn good Batman.

    Also, by 2019 Affleck will be almost 50...you get a batman that old and all I can think of is The Dark Knight Returns or even Batman Beyond.

    Just bring back Adam West. I mean yeah, he's old old, near death old.

    Enough with the crusade for a serious, yet inevitably boring Batman.

    Yeah, good point. I love those. I even started a thread about them on UHM.

    Also, by 2019 Affleck will be almost 50
    That's about 30 in hollywood terms. All botox and plastic surgery.. :perty:

    Well Affleck is no longer directing:

    http://variety.com/2017/film/news/be...ct-1201971566/

    So here's where the DCEU stands right now:
    1. Green Lantern was a complete flop, WB writes off its losses and it is not in the universe cannon...start the universe over
    2. Man of Steel was sloppy but serviceable, not the worst Superman movie but it had some positives though it wasnt the runaway financial success WB was hoping for.
    3. Batman V Superman was a critical flop and while it made money, again it wasn't the financial success WB wants. Half an hour was cut from the movie for theaters and while not the only thing that hurt the film, it certainly didnt help.
    4. Suicide Squad was a commercial success and a major critical failure, lots of conflicts behind the scenes including multiple cuts of the film and entire missing scenes in the final product. Again an extended release is put out but not all of the footage is seen.
    5. Wonder Woman lost its first director, rumor is the movie is very uneven.
    6. Justice League's script is supposedly a mess and again some tonal issues cropping up according to rumors
    7. The Flash is on it's THIRD director.
    8. Affleck Backs out of directing The Batman

    This whole project seems to be a disaster. Maybe WB should give up the shared universe idea and stick to making individual films.

    This person on reddit prettu much summed up my feelings on this and had some interesting preditions:

    I hate to be THAT guy; but, my gut feeling is that if Wonder Woman is, once again, another critical mess and, even more so, badly under-performs at the box office, I guarantee three things will happen to the D.C.E.U. before 2017 concludes...
    Ben Affleck will pullout as Batman, realizing he's getting involved with projects that can't be saved; not to mention Warner Bros. forcing him to rush the post-production of Live By Night.
    Justice League, even if it manages to be on the Man of Steel's level of critical reception (rather than say Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad), it will still under-perform because most view Wonder Woman as the final, FINAL straw, on top of my above prediction dealing with Affleck.
    Finally, the year will conclude with Warner Bros. scrapping the whole D.C.E.U. and setting-up a new universe with a brand new Batman film for 2020.
    Look, I would hate for any the above to be true. I really do. It would be awesome for D.C.E.U.'s ship to turn around; but, at this point, with Ben Affleck stepping down as the director of his upcoming Batman film, the cards are definitely not in the right place for this universe to continue in the shape it's in...

    I wonder if it has anything to do with Live by Night performing poorly at the BO.

    It seems like some of their planned movies have been having a lot of problems, namely the batman solo film and the flash film.
