Grasping for an shred of hope that the DC Cinematic universe will not drown in a dour pit of “I hate being a superhero’-ness, Warner Bros. chief Kevin Tsujihara announced Ben Affleck will be directing a stand alone Batman film at CinemaCon.
Warner Bros. has committed to 10 films in order to develop the greater DC Cinematic Universe. Along with Affleck’s Batman, we’re looking at Suicide Squad (in a couple months), Wonder Woman, Justice League Parts 1 & 2, Aquaman (starring captain personality himself, Jason Mamoa), The Flash (hopefully minus the visor/helmet thingee), Cyborg, and a Green Lantern reboot.
I’m doing my best to not write ‘I told you so’ regarding Ben Afleck’s Batman. The uproar was ridiculous as the Michael Keaton brewhaha back in ’89. Thankfully we didn’t have the internets back then so idiots like me couldn’t spout off.
So what do you think? What’s Affleck got up his sleeve? Who’s your choice for the villain?
