Matt Reeves’ The Batman Confirmed To Be A Reboot Without Ben Affleck?

The seas are forever and oh-so-quickly changing over at DC Films. The studio tried its best to gain some real momentum with Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, and Justice League all hitting theaters within the same year-and-a-half period of time. However, after Batman v Superman, it seemed clear that this was not the critically and fan-loved franchise they were hoping for.

As soon as Batman v Superman hit, actor Ben Affleck seemed to slowly back away from the franchise, with him growing wishy-washy over his involvement in The Batman, a project he was supposedly set to develop and direct the standalone film. He’s since stepped down as director, with there being signs to him leaving the franchise altogether.

Now, a new report from Deadline states that Matt Reeves’ upcoming film (which he took on from Affleck) will be rebooting the standalone franchise, and it even goes on to say that it will bring in a new actor to take on the Caped Crusader.

Of course, this is nothing new to many of you. As I mentioned above, it’s something that’s been speculated for the past couple years, but has yet to be given lip service by the studio. However, this is yet another inside report that is yet another check in the column of “Affleck leaving,” even if we can’t completely confirm it 100% just yet…no matter how true it probably is.

What do you think of this new report? Does it add any more validity to the idea that Affleck will be gone soon? Let us know your thoughts down below!
