I think a lot of people are wondering what the status of Deathstroke is in the next Batman movie now that Ben Affleck is off the project as director. Do you have any information about that?

I don’t. Well, I do but nothing that I can share. I know everything but I can’t say any of it.

Was that imparted in a happy way or a downtrodden way? I’m trying to interpret the fluctuations in your tone.

[Pause.] I’m shooting for a neutral tone.

You’re succeeding.

Thanks.

Any idea when we’ll find out?

It’s not up to me. That’s a good question for Warner Bros. and D.C

My guess? He's out of The Batman, but they may have plans for him in Nightwing or Suicide Squad 2.

And when you start with that illogical premise, it's really hard to write a story around it that makes sense. Superman has to be the biggest moron on the planet to lose to Batman so of course they had to write Supes as an idiot in BvS.

At least here, Reeves doesn't have to make something that ridiculous work in a movie. That's another reason why I'm so excited for this one. He can keep the story on the ground where Batman makes sense.
I mean it makes sense why he's attached to Frank Miller's material. 300 is one of his biggest successes and that was a Frank Miller comic. Probably thought he was hedging his bets by going the Frank Miller route.

Pretty good I think. We're still 4 months from the start of 2018, and let's say they start in March/April of 2018, that will be nearly 7-8 months from now which is plenty of time. 4-6 month shoot for a June/July release in 2019 is doable.

I can't imagine they need over almost a year and a half to get the ball rolling on the whole thing.

Eh I never felt he was right for Deathstroke any how and to be honest Deathstroke is a pretty boring villain. There's a dozen villains I'd like to see on film before him.

Deathstroke was a "what the hell?" choice for me too. He doesn't even make the list of villains I'd want to see in a Batman movie.

Feel a bit bad for Joe as he seemed pretty excited but yeah I was not a fan of him in the role though.

By him "knowing" it's probably him knowing he's out but he can't actually say anything yet.

Apparently there was a picture of Manganiello as Slade with the eyepatch and all...skip to the 2:48 min mark.

So chances are...He's still in the DCEU at the very least.

Given how many changes/reshoots/additional photography have gone on with JL, we can't trust even production stills to give us an accurate idea of who's in or who's out anymore. Manganiello could be gone completely, in another film, or in The Batman. There's just been way too much stuff going on behind the scenes to believe anything.

No matter what's going on behind the scenes I highly doubt they'd promotional material for something that's been long cut considering the company is up to speed on just about everything. This whole notion that WB is in "Watdowedowatdowedowatwedo" mode and running like chickens with their heads cut off is just ridiculous at this point especially since we don't know the exact substance of said "changes".

Yeah I guess, he does Reeves Trilogy and that may take nine years. So they will probably age him up for his swan song ala Logan.

First time I've noticed this! Very interesting to see his take separate from the DCEU, and hope he'll get a lot of creative freedom!

I have my suspecion it will be made after flashpoint and then reeves will be free to do what he wants with batman and not be concerned with what happened with BVS,SS,JL,and possable SS Sequel.

i have my suspecion flashpoint will end up being a more distract time travel reboot than DOFP was.

I feel like he's probably just saying that it'll be outside any larger storyline going on in the DCEU and it won't have to set anything up or stress connections to the shared universe.
No other heroes will show up.

It'll still be the batman we have though.
Still Ben Affleck.
Still the same supporting cast.

Must be a real slow news day at Batman-News if they're reporting or just now sharing something Reeves said back before Comic-Con and now trying to frame it within the context of this Joker film being separate from the DCEU.

Yeah, I doubt he would drop something significant like The Batman being outside of the DCEU on some podcast.

No one noticed that snippet until today. It's still relevant as the last we've heard of the DCEU slate was at Comic Con, a mere weekend after that interview took place.

So it is settled.

So the movie is set in the DcEu. Reeve has a idea for his film to work without cameos and what not. He said that his movie will be similar to Hithcock movie with pov shot. What if he is doing a movie à la The Rope? "real time"
