HOT RUMOR: Ben Affleck to Direct ‘The Batman’ For 2018 Release

Last year it was reported that a solo Batman outing was in the works over at Warner Bros. It appears that the film is still happening, as Latino Review is reporting that the studio is looking for a November 2018 release for the film, which is titled The Batman.

The source also reveals that Chris Terrio, who rewrote the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice script and is currently working on the two part Justice League film, will pen the movie with Ben Affleck attached to star and direct. If true, then we could be looking at an official announcement during Warner Bro’s panel on SDCC next month.

For now, it would probably be wise to take this news with a grain of salt, as at this point, it’s nothing but an unconfirmed rumor, but what do you guys think? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts below.
