Ben Affleck has given us a critical detail about his upcoming standalone Batman movie: the title.
“The movie I think is going to be called ‘The Batman,'” Affleck told the Associated Press during the press junket for “The Accountant” (opening October 13). “At least that’s what we’re going with right now. I might change it… That’s about all I got right now. We’re working on the script, the script is going well, I’m really excited about it.”
Not much is known about “The Batman” project, for which Affleck will return as The Dark Knight after playing the character in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” (and providing a cameo for “Suicide Squad”). He is also directing the Batman movie and writing the screenplay.
The only other piece of info that’s been revealed about the movie from Warner Bros., which currently has no release date, is that Joe Manganiello (“Magic Mike,” “True Blood”) will be playing the villain Deathstroke in the movie.
A source told Business Insider that “The Batman” is the working title for the project.
