Ben Affleck Passes The Torch To Next Generation of Bruce Wayne

Wed Jan 30, 2019 8:03 pm

Warner Bros. is dating their next rendition of Batman for June 25, 2021. This is the one that Matt Reeves has been attached to as writer and director. Ben Affleck, we hear, will not be donning the Dark Knight’s tights after playing the Caped Crusader in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and Justice League and that’s because this movie will focus on a younger Bruce Wayne.

Pray Matt Reeves won't shove Catwoman in there as a love interest.

Even if they swap out the man in the mask, nothing seems to be indicating we're getting any major deviation from the established DCEU continuity.

Hell, even the stuff about Trevor's return being permanent was shot down by Pine himself. I figure if we see Selina in the movies, any romance will be set in the past (as Bruce's dialogue in BvS implied) or perhaps it'll be a more platonic situation like in "The Batman" animated series.

It was very tiring beforehand how this kept popping up in the news as a rumor. Now I'm glad it's over. Still, going with an old Batman should've never been the plan.

I do hope that we don't have another origin story. Batman does not need another origin story and neither does Superman. I do think we will not get any team up movies though for a least 5 years if ever again. So bye bye BMWW.

As I understand it, The Batman will pick up with a novice Batman, but not a rookie Batman. And I don't think it'll be a full 5 years... 3 to 5 maybe. Probably sooner if BoP illustrates the viability of multi character films to the studio again. As for BMWW, as long as the continuity hasn't died then the ship may ride. After all, remember where we last left those 2...

Welp. The DCEU is officially dead. Let the rebooting commence. DC has gotten pretty good at spamming the reboot button.

So confusing.
WB learning the wrong lessons from their failures and making a mess of things again. Fuck me, why do I feel like things are just getting bumpier?

It sucks, but it's finally good to see a straight answer.

I also don't see how this makes the DCEU dead? As long as Snyder has barely any creative input, I think it'll be fine. Aquaman made more than a billion, then we got Shazam coming up. Evidently, I don't think they're focusing on continuity as much for now.

No. They're not interested in making Justice League movies right now. It's a good decision, but they will have to back to make Justice league movies. And, saddenly, we have to stay quiet with WonderBat in the DCEU, by now. The alone movies will take their time. And you know that DC and WB are making those movies for money, not for the fans.

The level of waste perpetrated by WB with Ben in this role is downright nauseating. :vomit:

What an absolute waste, I’m honestly not terribly excited for the new movie. I love Batman more than any other fictional character, but we’ve seen a young Batman EVERY. SINGLE. FILM. he’s been in. BvS and Justice League were disappointing films, but Affleck had the potential to do something we hadn’t seen before in a solo Batman film. I hope I end up changing my mind, but I really just don’t want to deal with this nonsense right now.
