It seems like the day belongs to Batman! Big news coming from Ben Affleck on his solo Batman film project.
During an interview about his upcoming movie, The Accountant, Affleck revealed the movie title.
“The movie I think is going to be called ‘The Batman’,” Affleck told the Associated Press. “At least that’s what we’re going with now. I might change it,” he cautioned.
Affleck also revealed why he chose Deathstroke when speaking to Collider:
“He’s a great villain because—I just had an instinctive feeling that he would match up with him well. You know, I’m a big admirer of that character as well, especially in the New 52 the way that they did Deathstroke, and I thought that it could work.”
Lots of news coming from Ben Affleck, although he wouldn’t say much about Justice League and who could blame him? Poor guy is pushing his new movie and all anyone wants to talk about is Batman.
