Holy smokes Batfans, it was announced today that Ben Affleck has decided not to answer the call for the solo film and a younger actor will play the role of the caped crusader. Affleck weighed in on Matt Reeves’ new direction for the franchise and gave it praise.
Reeves offered some details on his project, describing it to Hollywood Reporter as:
“Aquaman is going to be different than Todd Phillips’ Joker film which will be totally different from SHAZAM and Harley Quinn. The Warners believes they don’t have to try to develop a giant slate that has to have all the plans for how it’s going to connect. What they need to try and do is make good movies with these characters.”Matt Reeves
Matt Reeves also mentioned in another interview that his take on Batman will be Noir themed; that he will face many rogues from his rogue gallery in the movie. You can read that interview here.
