The Batman, DC’s upcoming solo film to be helmed by Matt Reeves, could be going in front of the cameras as soon as next summer, a new rumor suggests.
On his Inside Fanboy Baseball Periscope, Heroic Hollywood Editor in Chief and The Wrap reporter Umberto Gonzalez dropped a rumor that, if all goes according to plan, The Batman could begin production very soon. He said:
“If everything falls into place, The Batman should go into production in the summer of 2018.”
The Batman currently stars Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon and Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth. The film does not yet have a release date however the stars will be seen in their roles later this year when Justice League opens this fall.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
