Batman over the ages in movies, and the DCEU connection
Batman has had numerous appearances in film over the years, even way back in 1966, as Adam West's Batman: The Movie. Most notable of Batman's multiple screen appearances have been in Christopher Nolan's trilogy. However, these exist in their own canon, not tying in with the DCEU. Following Nolan's films, Ben Affleck's portrayal was ill received, putting the future of the franchise in uncertainty.
After reported Ben Affleck exit, will we see new Batman?
For those unaware, the upcoming Batman film was supposed to be written and directed by Affleck. However, following negative reviews and personal problems, Affleck is rumored to have exited the franchise in the capacity of director and actor. With Reeves helming the project now, reports suggest the film will focus on a younger Batman. Could we get news of a new Batman casting soon?
