Very true. But I have a feeling Reeves won't even acknowledge the rest of the DCU in his film(s).

If Gylenhaal or anyone else is going be the new Batman, they should not just recast Ben, they should make him a new young Batman.
I hope the creative team of the studio can somehow implement Matt's Batman into this cinematic universe and not make it stupid. I know it will be hard, but they can explain it with timeline paradox. Like one timeline mixing with another timeline and making it feel organic.

That video makes me think we aren't getting The Batman until 2020 at the earliest.

Yeah...still can't picture Jake Gyllenhaal as Batman in any shape or form.

So, if JL underperforms, WB jettison Affleck, spend a few months re-casting, film into pre-production next spring, production next autumn, post production spring 2019..... Xmas 2019 release? Or summer 2020.

He does fit more as a Dick Grayson in my head. But the guy is a better actor than Affleck, and probably close to Bale, so it might not be such a stretch to think he can play Bruce.

Not denying he isn't a good actor, but for me personally I just can't picture him as Batman. Just my opinion though.

It's a shame they cut so many scenes with Affleck in the cave. I found those were his better looking scenes. I still preferred how he looked visually in BvS as Wayne. I definitely don't want this to be his ending note, going out looking like this.

Winter 2019 is ruled out because they have WW2 in that slot, and they have Shazam in the spring. So if the plan is to have it out in 2019, summer is the likely landing spot. Plus Batman has been very successful as a summer franchise, so I think WB would be keen to keep it there.

The film would need to start shooting in late spring or early summer of next year for a Summer 2019 to be realistic. But Weintraub is making it sound like they are still very early in the development stage. I suppose my question is will Reeves have it ready to shoot in 5-6 months? Lord knows we don't want him rushed.

Don't rule out the possibility of WB and their ever rotating director door.

And he lost that gamble. Think what it must be like for these two guys to look at this and want to say yes after more of these have come out. Being in the DCU does more bad than good for you unless you're Gal Gadot. And that's not enough.

As he shouldn't. Don't reboot for ****'s sake, just make better movies and the sooner you do, the sooner we can forget this four year nightmare.

Ah, good point on the films already scheduled. You’re right, no chance of a Reeves Batman film before summer 2020 probably.

But... we’re currently seeing the effects of rushed and chaotic productions with JL, so I’m happy if the next Batman solo is a ways off.

It’ll only be eight years after The Dark Knight Rises anyway!

The way they are treating the creative folks involved seems to point at a complete lack respect and only one focus, quick cash out before they effectively have sunk their ships. This at the expense of letting the directors sink with the ship while they get off without a potentially ruined career.

Just saw the film. No wonder Ben wants to jump ship immediately. This Batman was embarrassing. In the second half relegated to some oldbie with the occasional snark. The "lighter" moments were atrocious. A far cry from the dedicated performance in BvS.

Ben was at the top of my favorite Batman. This film almost made me forget why.

It won't. It will be set in the 80's.

Yeah, I still need to see the full film myself tonight, but none of the scenes I've seen of Affleck in Justice League were particularly encouraging. Just felt like he was on autopilot.

The thing with Ben in BvS was that even if you weren't necessarily a fan of how he looked in it or how Snyder chose to characterize Bruce in the film, it was hard to deny that Ben threw himself completely into the role for that movie.

It might be. No one knows for sure yet what Reeves will do with his Batman films. It could just as easily be set in the present with a retconned younger Batman and just keep the narrative largely isolated from the rest of the DCEU.

LOL, given the Gyllenhaal rumor, should we change the name of this thread to Ben Affleck IS NOT Bruce Wayne/Batman?

Or maybe... Ben Affleck IS Bruce Wayne/Batman for This Movie, At Least

All I'll say is, if it IS Gyllenhaal, then I guess the voice-changer is here to stay.

A "period" Batman trilogy might actually be an awesome idea. I have been rewatching the Burton Batman movies this week and I kind of miss that stylized look of Gotham.
