The Dark Knight’s future currently appears to be in something of a limbo.
Now the latest alleged source is claiming that Affleck is still officially Batman, but that negotiations are going on concerning his future in the DC Extended Universe.
According to Revenge Of The Fans, an insider said: “The present Batman is still Affleck.
“A change in cowl will not happen publicly until Ben is officially gone, and he is currently The Batman.”
They added: “But like we have said, it’s a negotiation thing right now. Not money, but appearances and creative.
“Ben isn’t wanting to vacate, but not wanting to commit fully.”
This would make sense since Affleck is set to appear in Flashpoint, while other DCEU movies in the works could also include his Batman.
However Matt Reeves is directing a Batman solo movie and rumours claim he has his eyes on Jake Gyllenhaal for the role.
Of course it is possible that Warner Bros might have more than one Batman at once.
After all, Joaquin Phoenix is lined up to star in a Joker origins movie, separate to Jared Leto’s evil clown in Suicide Squad.
