    The Batman movie talkback

    It looks like Ben Affleck's solo film will be titled "The Batman" with Deathstroke as the villain.

    That sounds great. Affleck will soon star and direct the next Batman movie.

    I'd rather they really flesh out one villain instead of cramming in additional (underdeveloped) ones.

    I do.

    I don't really see Affleck as the type of actor who will let himself get tied down to one character for very long. We had BvS, We have Justice League (probably filmed together...) and the Batman Solo. OH and Suicide Squad... I REALLY don't see him sticking around any longer than that. Once these actors start doing the producing, Directing, Acting trifecta and do it well enough to win Oscars for it??? I was personally shocked he ever took the role in the first place. I don't see another RDJ/Tony Stark situation happening here with him.

    I think that everything resides in the divided reception of BvS and the lack of succes on Affleck's last directed film ("Live by Night"). Probably felt overwhelmed between BvS, SS & JL, his own films and the recurrence of wearing the cowl beyond 3 films and on top of that, The Batman script and pre-production.

    If BvS would have been a smash box office hit with over 1B worldwide, the DC Entertainment ship well driven, he would have stayed longer.

    On the other hand, I'm quite happy to hear that Matt Reeves shall helm The Batman. Although, I'm starting to think that it would be some sort of clean slate or prequel of the Bat that we have seen in BvS. It could be a good movie if they show some sort of rise and fall of the overall Bat-Family. However, when we remember that poor Leto Joker characterization I came to realize is not feasible.

    Now, Mel Gibson as SS2 movie director is intriguing. DC has had quite convulted situations with chosen directors that have left productions due to "creative differences". As controversial as he is, there are just a few directors whose films are considered personally creative driven as Mel Gibson's ones. I don't see him helming a desired to be movie blockbuster as SS2. If he receives the key to the DC kingdom to do whatever he wants, it could be interesting to say the least. Even when he did not direct it, I'm imagining a mash up with "Get the Gringo" with Deadshot on a extraction mission on Peņa Dura facing Bane and overall Venom experiments.

    All I can see is the DCEU is a mess. No real plan and no singular vision. Well, there was one: Zach Snyder's. But that didn't take off as well as WB had hoped.

    Probably not the best idea to hire a guy who hates the very things that make superheroes work...

    I wonder if Hugh Jackman would take on Batman, now that he says he's done with Wolverine and Affleck is rumored to want out. I mean they want an older Bats anyway, and they don't have to avoid him looking progressively older as Bruce.

    It sounds like they wanted Matt Reeves to direct, but negotiations broke down.

    Not that I think he would be a terrible Batman, but I don't think that this will ever happen. Hugh Jackman has solidified himself in the pop-culture world of comic-based movies as Wolverine. It would be really hard for both casual and hardcore moviegoers to look past his rich history with the character...

    I like Mad Hatter, but there are more interesting villains they should do first. Deathstroke is a great choice and more than enough for the next Batman movie, but I really hope we get to see Clayface in a future film. There is so much they could do with his disguises and shapechanging, and it'd be nice to see Batman having to deal with a truly super-powered baddie for a change.

    Also not the greatest idea to hire someone mainly known for visuals and not so much for his storytelling strength...

    so Matt Reeves is the new Batman Director. now the rumor mill is that Ben might drop out of the role after justice league. Well, we can all BLAME Zack Snyder for all this mess. i HOPE once and for all he's replaced after justice league pt 1.

    i'm also looking forward (if it happens) that we get a new director for MOS pt 2.
