They should go the WW route and have at least two scenes, beginning and ending, in the present with Affleck so there's some kind of torch passing and to make people more comfortable with a younger choice

I see where you're coming from, but this would do the opposite for me. I rather just ignore it all together and treat it as its own universe. Even if they try and say otherwise.

Same story. Conjecture by the author. "Studio refused to comment," and "it's unlikely." They are equating the studio's refusal to comment as some kind of proof that it's unlikely that Affleck will remain Batman.

Bullsh**.

You don't really think they're reporting this based on the fact that WB said no comment do you?

If they had even one other shred of anything to go off of, surely they would mention it. These articles are just piggy-backing off of one another.

Are you expecting them to name sources?

There is information out there amongst managers, agents, publicists etc. that makes it appear that Affleck won't be in Reeves' movie. The trades are reporting that.

THR even added info regarding where they are in the script process so I wouldn't say they're simply piggy-backing off someone else.

Not necessarily. They could say anything. "Inside sources say" or "a source close to the production says."

They're not doing any of that. They're just riding the popular rumor that Affleck isn't going to reprise Batman, pointing to WB's lack of comment as proof of the unlikelihood.

What would WB have to announce? There's no script yet for Affleck to say yes or no to. Unless the expectation is that he'd sign on script unseen... which is dumb.

Exactly this whole "Is Ben Affleck going to play Batman?" was a rumor started by the mainstream FAKE geek culture blogs and it all started because of the sad affleck meme. Just look at this thread, they would ask him over and over again if he would play Batman and he always said yes, after like a year of people asking him he finally said something along the likes of "I'll need to see the script" and then people went crazy. Just look at all the links on this thread about it, it's been archived here.

More FAKE news, just regurgitating the same non-news with their own spin:

https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood...he-batman-over

And this article is wrong. Reeves did NOT turn in the whole script... he turned in "the first act" of the script. There is still no script for Affleck to read, let alone commit to.

More FAKE news.

https://www.technobuffalo.com/2018/0...in-the-batman/

They don't even have a script yet, how are they in the "casting process"? They're going to shop the movie around to actors and actresses without them even seeing a script?

*edit: it looks like this article is citing the same source as the one before it. Still FAKE, though.

A legit update:
http://www.darkhorizons.com/reeves-s...t-nearly-done/

Basically, script is still not done. And Reeves ducks an Affleck question.

At least it's not a "Year One" adaptation.

Definitely casts doubt on all of these FAKE rumors about "Reeves is going super young with Batman, he's talking to all these young actors about the part."

Why are they dodging questions about Affleck? They basically retconned the DCEU with their "Worlds of DC" announcement, now they're free to make movies with or without affleck because no movie is technically in continuity anymore.

Well, I'd assume because all parties are holding true to their word. Affleck said he'll do it if the script is good (there isn't a script yet), Reeves said "Affleck is my guy," and Reeves has no idea if Affleck will sign on because there's no script yet.

It's all pretty simple.

They never officially announced "Worlds of DC" as the brand for their cinematic universe.
