The Batman has been in development hell for a long time since Warner Bros has had no idea how to go forward with the project. Now we have some new information that the movie could be a total reboot.

Deadline is now reporting that 'The Batman' being directed by Matt Reeves will be a new standalone trilogy with a new actor attached as the main lead.

This means the new actor won't just be overtaking Ben Affleck's version of the character.

It's expected Ben Affleck has one more movie in his contract to star as Batman, but it won't be in a solo movie.

He's rumored to be starring in a new Flash film that will retell the Flashpoint storyline from the comic books.

If Warner Bros and DC decide to cast a new actor as Batman/Bruce Wayne, this surely means they have finished with Ben Affleck's version of the character.

Ben Affleck has not said anything official, but it sounds like we wants to leave the role.

As for who will be Batman in the new film, nobody knows who will play him yet.

Jake Gyllenhaal was an early favorite, but now he's out of the running as he's playing the character of Mysterio in Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 movie instead.

Armie Hammer was tipped to play Batman in the '00s in Justice League Mortal. However, that movie got canceled and the actor has yet to commit to play another comic book movie character ever since then.

Hopefully Warner Bros and DC can finally end all the rumors and speculation by actually announcing proper details of their future plans at the San Diego Comic Con happening this July.
