When Warner Bros. announced their upcoming superhero schedule last year, one title notably missing was a solo Batman movie. Sure, Batman was going to be a big part of both Batman vs. Superman and the two Justice League movies, but would Batfleck be getting his own trilogy, a la The Dark Knight? It turns out, yes, yes he will. Latino Review is reporting that Ben Affleck will both star in and direct the spinoff, titled The Batman, which is set for November 2018.

Seemingly taking a cue from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, the latest promo art for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (be sure to take a break to catch your breath every time you say that title) is also adorned with graffiti. According to the official plot synopsis released yesterday, Batman and Superman aren’t just fighting — they’re at war. And these new promo photos definitely encourage that idea.
The title of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is so detailed that you almost don’t need an official synopsis of any kind. From that collection of words, you can easily extrapolate the following: the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel will fight each other, but it will ultimately lead to them teaming up and forming the Justice League. Anyway, the actual, official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s superhero throwdown has arrived and it confirms everything you expect it to confirm.
At this point, we’re going to see the entirety of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad through footage filmed by civilians with iPhones before we even get to the first trailer. The latest batch of videos confirm a rumor that’s been circulating for months – yes, Ben Affleck’s Batman will play in a role in the film and from the looks of things, it will probably be far more than a “blink and you’ll miss him” cameo.
The Batman vs. Superman trailer came and went, and we still didn't get a great look at Ben Affleck in the traditional Batman costume (we’ll leave that armored suit out of this). We’ve all seen that black and white promo shot, but what does Batfleck look like in clear, full color? Today, we have that answer.
With a cast filled with villains and antiheroes from all corners of the DC comic book universe, Suicide Squad was already looking like one of the most jam-packed superhero movies of all time before Ben Affleck was reportedly spotted arriving at the film’s Toronto set. Although nothing has been confirmed, this certainly lend credence to the rumors that Batman (or at least Bruce Wayne) will be showing up in David Ayer’s supervillains-on-a-mission movie.
Rather than create an entirely new Batmobile or simply modernize the caped crusader’s more classic model, Zack Snyder basically took the tumbler from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and combined it with the vague shape of the retro model for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We got a peek at the tumbler last year via the first official photo of Ben Affleck’s brooding Batman last year, but now you can get a more thorough look at the hero’s super-vehicle with this new footage.
Despite the Batman vs. Superman trailer leaking online over the weekend, Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder still went ahead with their big IMAX presentation yesterday in over 35 cities across the U.S. and Canada. It should have been the first time anyone saw the trailer, but after the leak, everyone had seen it. So Snyder had to give the fans a little something extra...
Man, it’s just all about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice this week. And this movie doesn’t come out for almost another year! You’ve got the first teaser, you’ve got the first posters, and now there’s a new video, from Bleacher Report, that features NBA player DeAndre Jordan touring through Warner Bros. Studios’ Batman exhibit, and getting a special sneak preview of the Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman costumes from Batman v Superman, along with the brand-new Batmobile. It’s not enough that he’s hugely successful and wildly rich? He gets to see the Batman costume before the rest of us too? Lucky son of a gun.
Man, things are just not going well lately for Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. First, someone leaked the filmmakers’ plans to release a snippet of the film’s teaser trailer on Twitter to advertise a big premiere event for the rest of the coming attraction at IMAX theaters around the country. Then someone uploaded a grainy bootleg of the trailer, essentially spoiling the big reveal almost a week early. (Warner Bros. later released a high-res version.) Now someone’s defaced the movie’s first posters! Damn internet hooligans! Get off my digital lawn!
