A new report claims that Matt Reeves’ upcoming DC movie will not be titled The Batman as previously believed. The Batman film has been in development for quite a while now, but nothing about the film’s storyline, casting or release date has been announced yet.
Popular leaker Daniel Richtman recently shared a screenshot of the film’s production sheet on Twitter that labels the movie as “Untitled Batman Project.” This means that the movie is going to get a brand new title, as it nears the beginning of production. You can check out the screenshot of The Batman film’s production sheet below.
Actor Ben Affleck was originally attached to write and direct the film. But, the Batman actor eventually stepped down and handed over the directing duties to Reeves. Affleck was still attached to reprise the role and produce the film. But, now, reports are that Reeves’ upcoming film will focus on a young Batman, so, the chances of Affleck returning as the Caped Crusades is almost zero. It is rumored that the film will not be directly based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic.
Earlier this month, a Revenge of the Fans report revealed that Reeves delivered a new draft of the film’s script at the end of 2018 that added more “spectacle” to film than the previous version of the script. With all plans falling in place, Warner Bros. is expected to begin the film’s production in November of this year.
With the film’s production slated to begin later this year, it would be feasible for the Batman movie to get a Christmas 2020 or a summer 2021 release.
Warner Bros. and DC Films have a number of other films in line including The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, Birds of Prey, Suicide Squad 2, Black Adam, Supergirl, Nightwing, New Gods, a Deathstroke film, and a Joker origin movie set outside of the DCEU.
