Last week, a troubling rumor arose about the state of the script for Ben Affleck‘s developing The Batman (or whatever it ends up being called), thanks to some secondhand information from Bret Easton Ellis. After what he said spread on the internet like wildfire, he walked back his statements, making sure to reiterate that all this information was from people who aren’t directly tied to the project. Now we have word from someone who will be a key part of the project pushing expectations the other way.
Joe Manganiello has been confirmed to play the villain Deathstroke in Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie, and while making a guest appearance on a podcast recently, he talked about what convinced him to get involved, and what fans can expect from the forthcoming outing for The Dark Knight. Read More »

Despite the fact that we don’t actually know when it’s coming, Ben Affleck‘s The Batman has looked like one of the more promising films on Warner Bros.’ DC slate. Not only was Affleck one of the highlights of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but he’s also planning to direct the film himself. Affleck’s been saying all the right things about the project, too, talking up his collaboration with Geoff Johns and emphasizing that they’re taking the time to get it right.
But if American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis is to be believed, fans may want to temper their expectations. According to Ellis, Affleck’s The Batman script is a total mess. And even worse, he claims Warner Bros. doesn’t care to bother fixing it.
UPDATE: Ellis has since clarified his comments about The Batman. See what he had to say below. Read More »
