When Affleck decided not to direct THE BATMAN and Matt Reeves stepped in, I think people were afraid that Ben may not reprise the role. Is there any fear of that? I mean, I’m not really involved with THE BATMAN, but from everything… We have a cursory involvement because that character is going to touch […]
NBC and Red Nose Day, a charity that uses entertainment to raise awareness and money to help kids in need around the world, are teaming up once again for a celebrity-filled primetime fundraiser. The special will air on NBC on May 25th and Ben Affleck (and Batman) will be a part of it this year!
Variant’s Arris Quinones caught up with Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino at the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and asked if he’d like to write the music for a Batman movie. Giacchino is all for it!
That tweet seemed to slide under the radar, but on Tuesday fans definitely noticed another Batman related tweet. Gad posted a picture of The Penguin. No comment, just a picture of The Penguin.
“It’s a strange thing to be involved in the two franchises which were the two that I was connected to most as a child,” Reeves said. “I just was obsessed with Batman when I was a kid. What I find so interesting about him as a character is that, as far a superhero goes, he’s […]

Would that be awesome? Of course! But it wasn’t worth getting excited over since it didn’t come from a reliable source. Thankfully, we can put that silly rumor to bed now. DC Films co-head Jon Berg just debunked it on Twitter in a very funny way. Hey @geoffjohns why didn't you tell me we were […]
Comic book writer and Deathstroke co-creator Marv Wolfman had lunch with Manganiello this afternoon, and is confident that movie fans will get the Deathstroke that they need and deserve!
Matt Reeves is putting his name all over The Batman. Reports say that he’s starting the project with a brand new script, and now he’ll reportedly be bringing in his Planet of the Apes producing partner to help out with the movie.
Manganiello was a guest on Pittsburgh Today Live yesterday morning to promote his new Smurfs movie, but the topic of The Batman came up as well. When asked if he was playing Deathstroke, Manganiello paused and said “Umm. Maybe. We’ll see.” Check out his answer for yourself in the video below.
Sources tell /Film that The Batman script is being rewritten from scratch and that it’s possible that everything we’ve heard about the movie’s story, like Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke, could no longer be in play.
In a new interview with Robert Irvine Magazine, Manganiello explained how excited he was to be joining the DC Extended Universe, how he will make Deathstroke his own, and said The Batman will still start shooting “soon”. Check out some quotes below.
Just a few hours after Reeves was officially announced as the new director of The Batman, Affleck took to Twitter to welcome him to the Batcave. Welcome to the Batcave, @MattReevesLA pic.twitter.com/JsB4sGGux2 — Ben Affleck (@BenAffleck) February 24, 2017
They were in talks, they walked away, but now Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. have come back together and the deal is official! Matt Reeves will direct and produce The Batman.
The Hollywood Reporter says that Reeves has exited talks with Warner Bros., though does note that negotiations could start up again once things cool down on both sides. No word on what the two sides are disagreeing over at this time.
We heard that he was the favorite, and tonight it’s being reported that Warner Bros. has officially offered Matt Reeves the job to direct Ben Affleck in The Batman. Variety says that he has already agreed, so at this point we probably just need some signed paperwork to make it a done deal.
