    Default The Batman (2021: Warner)

    There are 2 posted Warner Bros. release dates without titles: October 5, 2018, and November 1, 2019.

    Director: Ben Affleck

    Script: Geoff Johns, Ben Affleck

    Bruce Wayne/Batman: Ben Affleck

    Slade Wilson/Deathstroke: TBD

    Other DC filmverse characters as required. No list yet. Deathstroke is said to be Batman's main, but not his only, opponent.

    Deathstroke disappeared from the TV Arrowverse because he'll be used in the the cinematic universe, possibly in Suicide Squad 2 and/or a Justice League films before The Batman.

    Affleck tweeted footage of a possible Deathstroke costume

    Earlier this year, Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes revealed an 18-month timetable for the upcoming solo Batman movie, the only true news on the film’s release up until this point. Now, speaking with ET, star Joe Manganiello (who will play Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke, in the film) has taken it a step further and revealed filming will begin next spring. Check it out in the video below.

    Manganiello will face off against Ben Affleck’s Batman in the film with additional appearances by Jeremy Irons as Alfred and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon expected to happen as well. Affleck will both star in the film and sit in the director’s chair. DC Entertainment President and CCO Geoff Johns will serve as co-writer (with Affleck) and producer.

    An official release date for The Batman hasn’t been set, but Warner Bros. has previously announced release dates for untitled movies on both October 5, 2018 and November 1, 2019, meaning it could come on either of those dates.

    So we may have had our fair share of Batman solo movies over the years, but I think it's time for more Justice League types, where Batman may team up with Green Lantern and another super hero to fight a more powerful enemy. Just like Batman vs Superman!

    Having said that, a solo BM movie is always welcomed

    Hey guys, it's been a while, hope all of you are staying safe!
    Yes I saw that and I am looking forward to many movies to be released in 2021, like Batman, Suicide Squad, Marvel phase 4 movies, Wonder Woman 1984 and so on.
    Last I heard that Robert Pattinson is suffering from Covid 19, which sucks!
    Hope he recovers without any issues.
