If recent reports are to be believed Matt Reeves’s The Batman movie might be set outside of the DCEU. There have been reports of Warner Bros. working on a new brand of DC movies that will have no connection to the current DC Films universe. The films will likely fall under a new banner probably called DC Dark or DC Black.
Forbes’ entertainment writer Mark Hughes recently shared the rumor on The Superhero News Show that The Batman could take place in the same universe as Todd Philips’ Joker origin film. Hughes said that two different people associated with Warner Bros. have told him that discussions are currently going on about making The Batman exist under the same banner as the Joaquin Phoenix led Joker.
According to Hughes, if Todd Phillips’s Joker origin film turns out to be successful, the film studio will most probably consider folding it into the continuity of The Batman, so, that the rebooted Batman franchise will have its new Joker already.
Hughes stated that this is just an idea for now and nothing has been finalized yet. So, it’s better to take the information with a big grain of salt.
Notably, Todd Phillips’s Joker origin film starring Joaquin Phoenix is the first movie being made under the new banner. It should not be confused with Jared Leto’s solo Joker movie which will be set within the DCEU. Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker origin movie is expected to go on floors this fall in New York City.
Talking more about The Batman, writer-director Matt Reeves turned in the first act of his screenplay over the Memorial Day weekend. As per the script, the film will likely feature a younger version of Batman. So, the chances of the 45 years old Ben Affleck starring as the Caped Crusader in the film are almost zero at the moment.
Pursue News will bring the latest updates on The Batman as it comes in. So, don’t forget to stay tuned.
