Rumour: standalone Superman film in 2018, Batman in 2019
Ben Affleck as Batman may finally get a standalone movie in 2019...
Given that Warner Bros has committed the immediate future of its burgeoning DC movie universe to match-up films, with Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice first and Justice League second, one inevitable question is when are Batman and Superman going to get standalone movies again? After all, the pair of characters have been at the heart of some of the very best comic book movies to date. And Superman, with Henry Cavill taking on the role, was only rebooted last year.
Rumours continue to swirl regarding the state of the DC movie adaptation slate, and now Latino Review reckons it has a some answers. It had already been rumoured that 2018 would see a standalone Superman sequel, but the site's sources suggest that 2019 is when we'll next get to see a Batman film.
Furthermore, it reports that the working title for the movie is The Batman, citing the possibility that Ben Affleck - as well as taking the lead role - may direct. That seems to be speculation and nothing more at this stage, however.
The one certainty is that Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck will face off on screen in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice in 2016. That much at least we know for definite.
