RUMOR: Batman solo film in 2019?

June 19th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr 1 Comment

Last week we got to see Warner Bros.’ rumored DC film roadmap through 2018.They included not only Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League, but also Shazam, Sandman, a Wonder Woman solo film, Man of Steel 2, and a Flash/Green Lantern team up movie! The plan is to announce them at SDCC.

Now thanks to Latino Review we have our first rumored DC film for 2019, a solo Batman film starring Ben Affleck, of which the working title is said to be The Batman.

The site points out that Affleck will write, direct, and star in Live By Night in summer 2015. That film will release on October 7th, 2016 and frees up plenty of time for the studio to develop the script and get going on production. There is also the possibility that Affleck could direct it.

What do you think? Do you want Affleck to direct? What villain or villains do you want to see Batman face?
