Ben Affleck Talks ‘Batman’ Movie Title: ‘I Might Change It’ (Video)

But for now, he confirms he’s calling it “The Batman”

Ben Affleck confirmed he’s calling his solo Dark Knight movie “The Batman,” but that doesn’t mean the name will stick by the time it hits theaters.

“The movie, I think, is going to be called ‘The Batman,’ at least that’s what we’re going with now,” the actor told the Associated Press. “I might change it.”

“That’s about it right now. That’s all I got,” he continued in the interview. “We’re working on a script. The script is going well, I’m really excited about it.”

“The Batman” is still listed as “Untitled Batman Reboot” on IMDb, and no release date has been set. Affleck made his debut as the DC Comics superhero in this year’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and followed it up with a cameo in “Suicide Squad.”

The last nugget Affleck gave fans was the reveal of Deathstroke, whom TheWrap exclusively learned would be the main villain, played by Joe Manganiello (“True Blood”).

Affleck’s Batman will next appear in “Justice League,” directed by Zack Snyder, when it hits theaters on Nov. 17 next year. “Wonder Woman,” the next movie from DC, hits theaters on June 2.

In recent years, Affleck has become just as famous for his work behind the camera as he is for acting in front of it. He directed 2012 drama “Argo,” which won the Oscar for Best Picture. His next directorial effort, a gangster drama called “Live by Night,” arrives in theaters on Jan. 17.
