Warner Bros' The Batman officially has a release date. The feature hits cinemas on June 25, 2021. Ben Affleck will not be playing the titular superhero.

The Batman has had a long unfortunate production history. Affleck was constantly going back and forth on the project, at various points starring in it, then not starring in it, then directing it, then only producing it. Sharing the news that the film is going ahead without him on Twitter, it looks like Affleck has moved on.

 

Matt Reeves (Let Me In, War of the Planet of the Apes) is still on to direct and write the movie.

According to reports, the feature "will focus on a younger Bruce Wayne."

Now the only question that remains is who will replace Affleck as the Caped Crusader?
