Is THE BATMAN Coming to Theaters in November 2018 With Ben Affleck Directing?

Despite his inclusion in the Justice League, Batman tends to work alone. With the exception of Batman Forever and Batman and Robin, the cinematic version of the Dark Knight has flown solo. When Ben Affleck dons the Batman cowl in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he'll share the spotlight with Superman and eventually a whole team of superheroes in the two-part Justice League movie.

Latino-Review reported on Wednesday that it won't be long before Affleck's Batman gets some time to himself. According to the site, Warner Bros. is eyeing a November 2018 release for The Batman. Not only will Affleck reprise his role of Batman for the movie but he'll also direct the film.

It was actually just over a year ago when Latino-Review last reported that a solo Batman film called The Batman and directed by Affleck was on the way. Last June, though, the site was predicting that The Batman would hit theaters in 2019. Providing all of these reports have been true, it sounds like Warner Bros. wants to capitalize on Batman v Superman and Justice League as quickly as possible with a solo Batman movie.

The idea of Affleck directing a superhero movie for Warner Bros. goes back before the actor was even cast as Batman. When the studio hoped to get Justice League off the ground much quicker than it has actually taken, Affleck's name was making the rounds to direct that project. Man of Steel and Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder wound up snagging the honor of helming Justice League, but there was no way Warner Bros. could let Affleck — the acclaimed director of Argo and The Town — keep his DC Cinematic Universe role to just acting.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25, 2016. Affleck is expected to have a Batman cameo in Suicide Squad, which will follow on Aug. 5, 2016, before returning for Justice League in 2017.
