According to reports, Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. are eyeing Robert Pattinson, Nicholas Hoult (Datk Phoenix), Armie Hammer, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson to replace Ben Affleck as the new young Bruce Wayne in THE BATMAN movie. The live-action movie adaptation of DC Comics’ Batman will allegedly start filming late 2019 or 2020, due to the scripts still being polished.
Reeves version of the Batman will feature a younger Batman/Bruce Wayne with a new actor in the role following Ben Affleck’s departure early this year. The movie is says to be more comic accurate than any other Batman movie to date.
It’s just exciting to be focused very specifically on a tale that is defining for him and very personal to him. Obviously we’re not doing an origin tale or anything like that,” Reeves said.
“We’re doing a story that is definitively Batman though, and trying to tell a story that’s emotional and yet is really about him being the world’s greatest detective and all the things that for me, since I was a kid, made me love Batman.
The Batman will be released in theaters on June 25, 2021.
