The DC Comics film universe seems to be pretty shaky right now, with The Flash director Seth Grahame-Smith departing and Aquaman director James Wan rumored to potentially leave as well. This all seems to stem from Warner Bros. becoming more hands-on with the DC Comics films after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice didn’t live up to their expectations on a number of levels. But the one DC Comics movie that seems like a sure thing for the studio is Ben Affleck‘s solo Batman movie.
CinemaCon brought confirmation that Ben Affleck would star in and possibly direct the film that he is collaborating on with producer Geoff Johns. As of now, we don’t know when the film will hit theaters, but with Ben Affleck’s grizzled version of The Dark Knight being one of the best things to come out of Batman v Superman, fans are very excited to see what the Argo director will do with the superhero.
Now a new rumor gives a few details about what Affleck and Johns have in store, and it involves bringing a bunch of iconic Batman villains into the mix. Find out more about the Ben Affleck Batman movie villain roster after the jump. Read More »

The Warner Bros. panel doesn’t begin at Comic Con until Saturday morning, but big news has already hit. Ben Affleck will star in a solo Batman film to follow the Justice League film, and he’ll also direct the movie, as rumored not long ago.

With the San Diego Comic-Con just a couple weeks away, we’re likely going to get an onslaught of new information and sneak peeks at whatever Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have in store for the DC Comics cinematic universe.
The new comic book sandbox won’t kick into full gear until Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice arrives, and then we’ve got a whole slew of DC heroes headed towards the big screen over the next few years. We’ve already got a full slate of films lined up through 2019, but it sounds like some of those plans might be expanding if a new rumor is to be believed.
Reportedly, Warner Bros. has Ben Affleck lined up to direct his own solo Batman movie for release in the fall of 2018. Find out more about Ben Affleck directing Batman after the jump. Read More »
The Warner Bros. DC Movie slate is set. From Batman v Superman in 2016 through Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, The Flash, a two part Justice League movie, Aquaman, Shazam, Cyborg and Green Lantern in 2020, that’s a whole lot of spandex on the big screen for the rest of this decade.
However, the press release also says this. “Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema will release a slate of at least 10 movies—as well as stand-alone Batman and Superman films—from 2016 through 2020 that expands this prized universe of characters.”
So in that time frame, if things go according to plan, not only are we getting the ten movies mentioned above, but new Batman and Superman solo movies too. Read More »

Debate continues to rage about Warner Bros. plans for their DC properties. We know Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is coming in 2016, and we’re pretty certain Justice League will follow in 2017.
