Good news for the superhero fans, the 'Dark Knight' is all set to get back to the big screen once again as Warner Bros has announced the release date of Matt Reeves' 'The Batman'.
As per media reports, the much-anticipated superhero flick will premier on June 25, 2021. However, the speculations being true, Ben Affleck reportedly will not don the costume of the Caped Crusader this time. Reeves, who is writing and directing the flick himself will be handpicking the next Bruce Wayne.
Moreover, media reports suggest that Matt Reeves is pairing up with his 'Planet of the Apes' producer Dylan Clark for the upcoming project.
The director took over the directing duties from Affleck, who previously helmed the film, in January 2017 and he has been working on the project ever since. Reportedly, following the 'Justice League' movie, Affleck and the studio entered into discussions of the actor leaving the franchise and allowing Reeves to pick a new Batman.
As per media reports, sources confirmed that the studio is happy with early drafts of Reeves' upcoming venture. Reportedly, the director who seems to be much dedicated to the project, had been spending the past couple of months giving final touches before he began meeting actors for the part.
However, no plot details have been revealed. There are a lot of speculations about Bruce Wayne's age in the movie. While some believe Reeves wants someone younger, in their mid-20s, to play the role, there are also reports that suggest that the studio wants someone a little older for the role. However, since no actor has been roped for the film yet, its hard to jump into any conclusion.
Meanwhile, Warner Bros is planning to relaunch its much-celebrated venture 'The Suicide Squad' in the upcoming year. 'Guardians of the Galaxy' director James Gunn is in talks to helm the project. It is staled to release on August 6, 2021. On the other hand, Robert Zemeckis' 'The Witches' is set to open on October 16, 2020, and Stephen King's 'Doctor Sleep' is scheduled to release on November 8 this year.
