So everybody takes this news with Grain of salt. as all knows That One batman Movie and three related movies to him are in development. After Ben Affleck departure from director seat for batman movie, Warner bros ropes in War of Planet of the Apes Director Matt Reves for taking call behind the camera. But that process postponed the movie to future because reeves want complete creative control over the new script and storytelling methods. The year 2019 is, of course, the 80th anniversary of the release of Detective Comics #27, and WB already has 3 slots claimed for “Untitled DC films” in that year. Still, this could certainly all just be some clever fan theory, but here’s what’s out there on Reddit.
The plan for 2019 is to release four Batman-related films. Gotham City Sirens around Valentine’s Day weekend, Nightwing on Memorial Day weekend, Batgirl in August and The Batman in November. The studio is doing this to celebrate the 80th Anniversary of Batman. this dates differs from Box Office Mojo information, which has 4/5/19, 6/14/10, and 11/1/10 as slots reserved by WB for DC films so far that year. Of course, that could change. However, WB currently Minecraft set for Memorial Day 2019, for example. Also, have to say I’m not sure it makes sense to end this slate with The Batman in November. it’d be more likely you’d lead with it — tie it in with Detective Comics #27 actual release date which was May 30, 1939, and they already have the April 5 slot reserved for a DC film. You intro a lot of stuff in there which spins off into the other films. I still think it’s a strong possibility that this sort of plan leads to Ben Affleck’s frustration with writing/directing the film and his “reverse-engineering projects to meet a window or a date” comments. ]
The Batman film will still have Deathstroke but not as the main villain. Matt Reeves wants to do a larger scale Batman film that will include the Bat family as well as most of Batman’s rogues.
In addition, two Batman animated films are also planned for 2019. One will be an adaptation of The Long Halloween.
Is four movies in year possible, Yes. Warner Bros. will probably never stop making Batman movies. Ever since the 1989 Tim Burton-directed feature effectively “invented” the modern-day superhero movie genre, the studio has maintained a constant state of either producing or actively developing for production one Batman-related project or another – even as the genre and series have risen and fallen in popularity. WB/DC has made a very big deal out of these anniversaries in recent years and used them to bootstrap marketing. What are your thoughts on Four Batman movies in the year? Let’s discuss in comments.
