Rumour: ‘The Batman’ to Begin Filming Next Year



War of the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves was brought on-board last year to helm The Batman for Warner Bros after Ben Affleck stepped down.

Since the announcement, fans have anxiously awaited news of when the new standalone Batman film would begin production.

Now a new rumour has surfaced indicating cameras won’t start rolling until 2019.

According to Heroic Hollywood, they have learned The Batman won’t begin production until 2019 at the earliest, indicating the film won’t be released until 2020 or 2021.

Reeves confirmed late last year he’d worked out the story and was in the early stages of tackling the script.

We’re still waiting to see whether or not Ben Affleck reprises the role of the Caped Crusader, as there’s been rumours he’s wanting out and that Reeves would like to cast a younger actor.

Warner Bros. currently have Shazam and Wonder Woman 2 in production. James Wan’s Aquaman is currently in post, so there’s no shortage of DC Films hitting the big screen in the next couple of years whilst we wait for The Dark Knight to return.
