Ben Affleck is saying he was misquoted in a recent interview and that the Batman solo film does not yet have a title. Batman News says the actor cleared the air in a recent interview with E! News after it was reported he had titled his upcoming film The Batman:
“I mentioned the other day… it’s been around for a long time, the movie… there is no Batman movie happening yet, we’re still trying to figure it out, you know, get the script and budget and all that stuff...And someone said, ‘what are you calling it?’ and I had said, like, back when we were promoting another movie, I was like ‘we don’t have a name for it, we’re just going with The Batman or Batman movie’, and I said that, and everyone was like ‘Affleck announces the title of his Batman movie.’”
Looks like the headlines jumped the gun on this one. I'm not all that disappointed as titles of films don't hype me up much. I think we were all just so psyched to be getting any information we could about the new solo film that we got super excited about something that doesn't matter that much. That's likely a product of the age of a thousand teasers for films.
