The Batman Start and Releases Date May Be Push Out

Posted by at 11:42 am on March 15, 2017

It looks like another setback for the DC Extended Universe, as Warner Bros.’ upcoming solo movie The Batman is likely to be delayed. According to Variety’s Justin Kroll, recently-hired director Matt Reeves is contracted by 20th Century Fox through June to complete work and promotion on this summer’s War for the Planet of the Apes, which will push the The Batman release date  and filming schedule back. So it now looks like cameras won’t roll until 2018.

This follows news posted by the film’s star/co-writer Ben Affleck on his Facebook page that he has just completed a stint in rehab for alcohol addiction:

According to Entertainment Weekly, Affleck’s alcohol treatment has not affected his role in The Batman, which he is still slated to star in despite rumors to the contrary.

In The Batman, Ben Affleck will face off as the title hero against Joe Manganiello, who will play Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke, in the film. Additional appearances by Jeremy Irons as Alfred and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon are expected to happen as well.
