Ever since stepping down as director of the upcoming film, there has been anticipation that Ben Affleck might not even star in the upcoming film. It seems that this idea is correct. Matt Reeves has pretty much said that he is going to recast the role of Batman. While this is rather disappointing to fans, there could be plenty of reasons behind this. There is no telling what The Batman is going to be about. Some even suggest that it is not even a part of the DCEU. One thing that is every bit as likely is that it could go into an earlier time in Batman’s life before he has met Superman and formed the Justice League.
While a lot remains unknown about the plot of the upcoming Batman movie, there have been ideas that it is going to be more of a detective story than an action film. One thing that fans have been complaining about with the Batman movies is that there seems to be too much focus on the action and not enough on the detective side of Batman, seeing that he is supposed to have the reputation of the world’s greatest detective.
While the DCEU has faced a lot of challenges in getting off the ground, there are plans to get everything back on track. As of right now, the MCU is outshining the DCEU, but even the MCU had its not so proud moments. Among the films that are being tossed around is Flashpoint, which is supposed to be a big event for the DCEU. Among the better films in the DCEU are Wonder Woman and Man of Steel.
