Solo Batman movie "a year-and-a-half out" according to Time Warner CEO

While it is no secret that Ben Affleck will appear as Batman again in the new JUSTICE LEAGUE movie coming out next year, or that he will appear in his own solo film (now with Joe Manganiello as main villain Deathstroke), there was some speculation on when the solo film will be released.

While this isn't exact confirmation, at the 25th Annual Goldman Sachs Communacopia Conference, Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes talked about the film. This is the same conference where he admitted that DC needed some work on the "creative". Here's what he said:

Ben [Affleck] announced a Batman movie he’s going to direct, star, write for - I think it’s a year-and-a-half out. So, the strategy worked.

While it is unclear if he is indicating when if it's a year-and-a-half until it will be released or when it will start production, it is nonetheless nice to hear movement on the project. I have established my respect for Bat-fleck's interpretation of the Dark Knight, as well as things I hated about it; however I am excited nonetheless for his take on a more traditional, less Snyder-y Batman.

You guys excited? And if the rumors are true and it's supposedly the "biggest Batman ever" with a whole bunch villains (alongside Deathstroke), who'd you like to see? Personally, I'm partial to Calendar Man.

Extra Tidbit: Ben Affleck not only played Batman, but played Superman (kind of) as real life George Reeve in the film HOLLYWOODLAND.

Just take the time and get it right.

I love Afflecks portrayal and I'm looking forward to this. No Joker, no more Leto. I hope they bring in more obscure villians. Maybe include more than Harley from Suicide Squad to help tie the movies together with a small WW cameo.


My favorite is The Scarecrow and it's way to soon to revisit that character, Nolan did it so well.

Feels so far away, but I couldn't be more excited for Affleck to be handling this project. I hope he nails it and takes over the reigns for DC.

Please NO Jared Leto Hot Topic Juggalo Joker!

Suicide Squad would have been much MUCH worse with more of Jared Leto's awful interpretation of The Joker. DC and WB made the right choice to cut his role way down. I'm sure the Joker will be in it... But I'd like to see another villain shine for once. I'm personally a little Jokered out.
I hope Deathstroke has a big role.
I'd personally love to see an awesome new interpretation of The Riddler or The Court of Owls!!!

A year and a half from release date or from the start of filming?

I have high hopes for a Ben Affleck directed Batman film. I hope he incorporates the Joker in this thing as well.

Please give Leto another chance

I'm excited about Deathstroke/Slade, but I also like the idea of Batman trying to get out of Arkham encountering all the villains he put away. But I need to see Leto and Affleck go face-to-face.

It's not the studio that would be extending another chance here, it's Leto extending it to them. When Suicide Squad was released he couldn't wash his hands of it fast enough, stating that he felt "tricked" into doing it. At this point, he's probably moved on unless Ben can convince him to do it.

Let him go, Leto's Joker was not good. Plus he's probably signed to do more than one film.
