Ben Affleck’s Batman solo project is starting to take shape with him directing, writing and starring but many fans are wondering what famous Batman villains could be making an appearance in the film?
Rumors had been circulating the the movie could be taking on a “Under the Red Hood” vibe, having Jason Todd return as a vengeful villain but sources from Birth.Death.Movies explain that this will be an “ultimate” Batman story that will feature “many, if not most, members of Batman’s rogue’s gallery.”
While nothing has been confirmed, it would appear that this story would use more unknown characters and allow for some very creative casting choices which could expand the DCEU. This doesn’t exclude some famous villains though such as, The Joker, The Riddler or The Penguin.
Kevin Tsujihara previously confirmed Affleck’s involvement in the Solo Batman project and how this is a critical and important step for the DCEU. “It set up a great foundation for our DC slate, which includes at least 10 movies through 2020.” This lead him to say, “I’m also excited to know that we will be working with Ben Affleck on a stand-alone Batman movie.”
