Ben Affleck has a new adventure in the works for the Dark Knight, and now the project has a name!
While promoting his new thriller The Accountant, the Academy Award-winner revealed the tentative title for his new stand-alone Batman flick.
Entertainment Weekly reports:
Affleck sat down with the Associated Press recently to talk about his upcoming thriller The Accountant, but he also took the time to discuss the solo Batman movie, which he will star in, co-write, and direct. Affleck also revealed the movie’s working title: The Batman.
“At least that’s what we’re going with now,” Affleck added. “I might change it.”
A release date has yet to be announced, but The Batman is expected to be released between the The Flash movie (which is set for 2018) and the Cyborg movie (which is out in 2020). At this summer’s Comic-Con, Warner Bros. confirmed that Affleck will both star in and direct the film.
“We’re working on the script,” Affleck told the Associated Press. “The script is going well. I’m really excited about it. And I assure you when there’s anything that develops, you’ll hear about it.”
