With DC and Warner Bros. apparently developing a whole host of movies to follow Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, now comes word of the inevitable solo Batman movie.
LatinoReview is reporting that the WB is lining up a new Batman movie for 2019, with Ben Affleck to don the cape and cowl again. The current working title is said to be simply The Batman. Obviously no plot details are known at this stage, although you’d have to think that Jeremy Irons’ Alfred Pennyworth, to be seen in Batman v Superman, will also make an appearance. Then there’s maybe the chance of other DC heroes making an appearance.
As for those other movies that are said to be in development, as well as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s said that the WB and DC currently have a schedule that looks a little like this:
- Shazam! – July, 2016
- Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Sandman – December, 2016
- Justice League – May, 2017
- Wonder Woman – July, 2017
- The Flash and Green Lantern team-up – December, 2017
- Another Superman movie – May, 2018
Expect to hear more on this as it develops.
