It looks like Batman V Superman might just be everything we hoped if this rumour plus the delaying of Affleck movies at Warners mean what we think they mean.
Word from sources at Warners is saying that a rough cut of Batman V Superman was shown to a group of Warner execs who gave the movie a standing ovation and immediately confirmed that the DC Cinemantic Universe will now revolve around comics’ greatest hero at the centre – Batman.
Word is that Affleck’s performance is so good, that he is touted already as ‘the definitive Batman’ (we got this feeling from the trailer (below)) and he is now in line for three standalone Batman movies.
This would make sense given the confirmation by Warners that have put at least two of the actor’s upcoming movies – Live By Night and The Accountant – on hold indefinitely.
Is Affleck DC’s Robert Downey Jnr? Well, that remains to be seen but if this all adds up then we could be in for something very special in BvS and once again Batman will be the jewel in DC’s crown. We’re ok with all this…
