Last weekend, a rumor was floating around that Warner Bros. Pictures was planning to release a total of four Batman related films in 2019, with Nightwing, Batgirl, Gotham City Sirens as well as the solo Batman film with Ben Affleck. While the four films are definitely being worked at, the part about them all coming out in 2019 is definitely just a rumor.
This morning Jon Berg, one of the co-heads of the DC Films division, took to Twitter to hilariously debunk the rumor about supposed release year for all four respective films.
“Hey @geoffjohns why didn’t you tell me we were releasing 4 Batman movies in 2019? Can we increase that to 10?”

Geoff Johns, who is the other co-head of the division, followed up with a hilarious response to Berg’s tweet.
“27. Including Batmite: The Movie.”

Hopefully in the near future, we will get some official updates on when these films are all coming out and more. At least you will see Batman on the big screen later this year in Zack Snyder’s Justice League which opens in theaters on Friday, November 17.
Matt Reeves’ The Batman, starring Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, David Ayer’s Gotham City Sirens, starring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Chris McKay’s Nightwing and Joss Whedon’s potential Batgirl film, are currently in development stages and have no set release dates as of now.
