Yes, that again. The Batman . Ben Affleck. Matt Reeves. Will you? Will not they? Does anyone really know?
It feels as if rumors are coming up every few months about whether Reeves, the director, is working on a new Batman movie, throwing Ben Affleck in the role, or going with a new actor. Things started last year when a report said Affleck was on the way out. Later, Affleck made it look like that this was not the case. Then it went on and with various quotes, reports and rumors, some contradictory, some supporting, and it's all just a big, confused game of "We Do not Know."
[19659004Thelatestupdateifyoucancallitthatisthe Deadline wrote in a story about Geoff John's Role Change at DC Entertainment :
Toby Emmerich [Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group] has the Possibility to truly remix the executive deck on the feature page and turn DC into something shapely than it is now, even as James Wan Aquaman arrives and is Wonder Woman 2 In production, Matt Reeves launches Batman for a new, standalone franchise, probably with a new actor who plays the Caped Crusader after Ben Affleck's stints in Batman v Superman and jus tice League .  The word "probable" is the key there, suggesting that it is likely, but not carved in stone. It is also unclear whether the Deadline message is based on new information or the same old middle ground that we mentioned above. Either way, io9 contacted both representatives of Warner Bros. and Afflecks, but has not heard of either.
Could we hear an announcement about Reeves' movie at the San Diego Comic-Con in July, where is Warner Bros. probably the biggest and most respected movie panel? It is possible, but doubtful. More likely, the mystery between Reeves, Affleck, and the Warner Bros. executives will persist for a while. When Reeves screenwriting is done and WB is ready to move the film (and fits in with his rather large bat-slate ), we may find out if Affleck will wear the cowl again or not. But for the moment? We wait and breed.
