Ben Affleck Confirms That THE BATMAN Will Be The Title Of His Standalone DCEU Film

As many fans and publications speculated, Ben Affleck has now confirmed that the title of his standalone take on the adventures of The Dark Knight is indeed going to be The Batman...

Well, it looks like the rumours were true! In an interview with The Associated Press for his new film The Accountant, actor Ben Affleck confirmed that his solo film as the Dark Knight will indeed be titled The Batman.

"The movie, I think, is going to be called The Batman,"
Affleck said. "I think that's what we're going with now. I might change it. That's about it, that's all I got. We're working on the script, it's going well, I'm really excited about it, and I assure you, if anything develops, you'll hear about it."

The title makes sense for a back-to-basics approach for the DC hero, and while we still don't know an exact release date for the film, Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes recently hinted that it will probably commence production in about a year and a half. The film is rumoured to feature several notable members of Batman's rogues gallery, along with taking place inside Arkham Asylum. Joe Manganiello's Deathstroke was also recently confirmed to make an appearance.
