Ben Affleck Hangs The Cape Crusader's Cape As 'The Batman' Set To Hit in 2021
There’s no easy way of saying it… Ben Affleck won’t be donning the armour of the caped-crusader for the 2021 standalone Batman movie. As per the reports, Warner Bros., have a checked June 25th 2021 as the date for the release of ‘The Batman’. This movie will be written and directed by Matt Reeves and Ben Affleck is not playing the Batman.
Reeves was brought into the Batman project in 2017 and took over from Affleck who was originally set to direct off his script with DC’s Geoff Johns. But he is currently swamped with a busy schedule and thus, have to hang his cape. Reeves’ idea for ‘The Batman’ includes a young Batman and exploring his detective skills.
Batman is known to be the best detective in the world and we have all seen this in comics and cartoons but are yet to see it on the big screen. Reeves thinks so too and has proposed to bring the detective Batman on screen too.
About ‘The Batman’, Affleck wrote a tweet sharing his excitement.
