As for why Reeves might want to do a prequel, it's probably because Snyder skipped over the vast majority of classic Batman stories so he could loosely adapt The Dark Knight Returns for Batman v Superman.

Reeves wants to do a trilogy of Batman films and mentioned last year that he wants to do something similar with Bruce as to what he did with Caesar character-wise. As a result, it makes a lot of sense for Reeves to be drawn to the idea of showing how Bruce became more cynical leading up to BvS.
Exactly. Kind of like how James McCavoy and Michael Fassbender haven't aged at all from the 60s to the 80s in the newer X-men movies.

Just cast Fassbender as Batman. That way you can have him play Bruce in the 90s and in the present and not look any different, since audiences are used to that sort of thing with him.

Fassbender's American accent is too hit-and-miss for me.

Yeah, it is very shaky. I remember watching that (terrible) movie The Counselor and not being able to tell whether he was supposed to be American or not.

I wasn’t seriously suggesting him; I was just making a joke about how he never ages in the X-Men movies.

It won't be at comicon apparently. As DC just showed things that was aleeady in production, and more or less announced nothing else. He's either in or out, wth WB??

Still a better suggestion than Oscar Issac.

Jason Sudeikis for Batman. Affleck kinda looks like him when he wears his Bruce Wayne wig so just swap him out and no one will notice.

Zach Galifianakis is my pick.

I honestly really hate the Bruce Wayne wig.
It always stands out to me and I just don’t like it.
As ridiculous as that may be.

I do feel slightly underwhelmed that we didn't hear anything regarding Batman - was the perfect time as fans would have seen so much to look forward too.

I think they realize how many times they have announced movies that end up not panning out, and have said they wanted to focus on the next three releases before over promising anything else. Also, I'm sure anything Batman would have overshadowed the other films spotlighted. Especially if they announced Ben was gone.
