THE BATMAN – “Camera Test”

THE BATMAN DC FanDome Teaser Trailer



THE BATMAN was conceived in 2013 when Ben Affleck signed on to play Batman in BATMAN v SUPERMAN and was officially announced in 2015 prior to BvS‘s release in 2016.

Under the direction of Ben Affleck, the script for THE BATMAN was co-written by Affleck and DC’s Geoff Johns, with BvS scribe Chris Terrio doing a polish.  Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello) was to be the film’s main villain.

After the critical and box office disappointments of BvS and JUSTICE LEAGUE in 2017, Affleck left the project; though it was not announced that he would no longer star in the film as Batman until early 2019.  Affleck retains an “executive producer” credit on the film but has no creative input.

In February of 2017, it was announced that Matt Reeves would write and direct THE BATMAN and would be a completely new film than the one developed under Affleck.

In January of 2019, it was announced that THE BATMAN would be released on June 25, 2021.

On May 31, 2019, it was officially announced that Robert Pattinson had been cast as Batman/Bruce Wayne in THE BATMAN.

On January 28, 2020, Warner Bros. issued a “Start of Production” press release for THE BATMAN.

On February 13, 2020, director Matt Reeves released a “Camera Test” video that revealed Robert Pattinson as Batman.

On March 15, 2020, THE BATMAN production went on hiatus due to the COVID-29 Pandemic.


As of January 2020, THE BATMAN will include the following villains: The Penguin, Catwoman, The Riddler, and mob boss Carmine Falcone.


According to Matt Reeves, the writer/director is planning on THE BATMAN being a “noir, detective version of Batman that is point-of-view driven.”

In THE BATMAN, Bruce Wayne/Batman will be 30 years old — give or take — a year or 2.  While not a rookie, he also will not be in his Dark Knight prime.


THE BATMAN will not be connected in any way to Ben Affleck’s Batman from BvS and JUSTICE LEAGUE.  It is a total reboot of the franchise and not a prequel to BvS/JL.  It also will not have any ties to Todd Phillips’ JOKER starring Joaquin Phoenix.
