Not So Fast! Now Affleck Says \’No Batman Movie Happening Yet\’


Ben Affleck Direct Batman

Earlier in the week everyone was linking to comments from Ben Affleck where he confirmed the title for the new Batman movie. Now he’s backtracking on those comments.

Likely because the movie hasn’t yet been officially announced, Affleck told E! News in an interview that Batman News found:

“I mentioned the other day… it’s been around for a long time, the movie… there is no Batman movie happening yet, we’re still trying to figure it out, you know, get the script and budget and all that stuff.” Affleck explained. “And someone said, ‘what are you calling it?’ and I had said, like, back when we were promoting another movie, I was like ‘we don’t have a name for it, we’re just going with The Batman or Batman movie’, and I said that, and everyone was like ‘Affleck announces the title of his Batman movie.’”

I still think it’s extremely likely that the movie will be title The Batman. We’ll just have to wait a little longer for the official announcement. That could come as soon as SDCC next July.
