Like many other DC projects that were announced perhaps too early into the production stage, rumors have continually surrounded director Matt Reeves’ The Batman, with many suggesting current Batman actor Ben Affleck would step down from the role following a turn in Flashpoint. Other rumors have even suggested that Reeves would opt to walk away from the project, something the director has repeatedly denied.
That said, a new rumor suggests that The Batman may finally head into production next year.
It seems, The Batman will finally enter production sometime next year. While it’s still unknown whether Affleck will return as Batman for the solo flick, previous reports indicated that Jake Gyllenhaal could step up to fill the role in Reeves’ film should Affleck opt out. Either way, it seems Reeves is moving full steam ahead with work on the film, having confirmed back in January that he’s in the outlining process and has the story worked out.
