Wasn't the whole USP for this that they got a big name show-runner. If they get some no-name to run this, not sure what the appeal would be.

There’s a thread for the show,

 

 

I’m definitely disappointed he left the show but if him and Reeves weren’t seeing eye to eye with the vision then it’s better it happened now.

Just get Greg Berlanti.

Drones ruin everything.  😂

 

The sets look cool, though.  The mountain and the circle with the statues are particularly interesting... 🤔  

 

Hard to believe that the trailer we saw was only around 30% of shooting -- I would have gone to see that alone.  There's surely some even greater juicy stuff within this film...

If this movie doesn’t go straight to HBO Max, I might consider watching it multiple times in theaters.

Maybe that's why they moved it to 2022, to not end up on HBO Max directly like the 2021 films.

 

But hopefully this will move to its original date in June (2022). Cinemas needs a huge comeback when everything is ok.

Warner Bros. will definitely aim to use this film as one of its "saviors" for a return to theaters.  Once again, we will need The Batman to save us...because he's the hero we need, but don't deserve...(because Batman always kept his mask on).

It's a good thing this is still being made right now and was moved out of 2021, saving itself from becoming part of WB's streaming purge today. Assuming the environment will allow movies to really prosper again by March 2022 I could see this exploding to huge numbers.

I know it’s not technically related to this movie, but did anyone else hear what Joe Manganiello had to say about Ben Affleck’s Batman script?

There's a big chance this goes straight to streaming. I don't see why WB would change their release strategy for 2022.

 

What's the rumored budget for this?

I’m pretty sure there are no rumors about the budget right now. The movie isn’t even done filming. The shutdown probably inflated the budget.

And the current shutdown in the UK will impact production even more.

You have to think that some of the actors  are getting the equvilent of "overtime" because the filming has taken so long.

That is standard in mny contracts;if filming goes over a certain date, actors get extra money since that might impact other obligations they have.

You know what? I’m starting to think that if this does go straight to VoD, maybe that won’t be a big deal. It might be time to accept that the future of movie theaters is looking more and more bleak.

Michael Keaton is the “New” DCEU Batman on Film

 

Quote

In a recent interview with THE NEW YORK TIMES, DC Film president Walter Hamada told the piece’s author, Brooks Barnes, that going forward, there will be two live-action Batman film series on the big screen at the same time.  Here’s a blurb from the interview…

 

"Coming up, for instance, Warner Bros. will have two different film sagas involving Batman — played by two different actors — running at the same time."

 

If you’ve paid attention to BOF via the website, vlogs, etc., (and other sane outlets/people online as well) — since Michael Keaton signed on to be in THE FLASH, the plan was for him to become the “DCEU” Batman/Bruce Wayne.  Ben Affleck is also showing up in THE FLASH as his version of Batman (or at least Bruce Wayne), but I’ve long been told (as have others) that it’s simply a “glorified cameo” and finally, his “cool way to segue out of the role.”

 

"BOF knew about this for a while now, but I kept it on the down and low out of respect for the studio, filmmaker, and Keaton, of course.  I can say that I was told by several sources who are privy to the project that Keaton’s older Bruce Wayne will essentially become the revamped DCEU’s version of the character. This could lead to a spinoff where he takes on a young protege to succeed him as Gotham’s protector…Batgirl, perhaps? Or Nightwing? Or BOTH?"

Media personality Néstor Bentancor flat-out asked (via Twitter) the aforementioned Mr. Brooks who would be the other Batman on film in addition to THE BATMAN series’ Robert Pattinson who confirmed that it was, indeed. Michael Keaton.  Here you go…

 

 

So that, is THAT. Probably… What I’ve been told, Keaton will play an older (obviously) version of Batman/Bruce Wayne who will mentor a protege/successor in films that are a riff on BATMAN BEYOND, as well as possibly appear in other DCEU films. As THE FLASH is fixin’ to get going soon in terms of production/filming, expect more info on Keaton’s return to Batman on film shortly. – Bill “Jett” Ramey

I don't know if it's the correct thread, but I think there is no problem.

I mean, that’s what I figured they’d do, since they already alluded to it back in June, and Ben Affleck probably wouldn’t be willing to commit anymore to this franchise beyond one more movie, but I’d rather they just focus on Pattinson’s Batman.
