    HBO Max wants Affleck, Leto, and Manganiello for an original Batman project

    [​IMG]

    Caped Crusader. Affleck is also in talks to return to the director’s chair and to adapt his original script with Zack Snyder producing.

    The return of Affleck’s Batman will either be a miniseries or a DC film on HBO Max, as Warner Bros. is committed to Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman‘ trilogy in theaters. Affleck’s project will likely follow the intended storyline teased by the post credit scene of Justice League, or Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

    From what we have heard in the past, Affleck’s original ‘The Batman‘ script featured Arkham Asylum, Joker, Deathstroke, and more of Batman’s rogue gallery. If Affleck is back in the cowl, then getting Leto and Manganiello to reprise their roles of Joker and Deathstroke, respectively, would be key.

    The Pattison joint doesn't have enough people excited for this not to be a rumored possibility.

    Lol when something gets taken away you subconsciously want it back. Ben was going through personal issues and seems a lot better also with how things are maybe people won’t be so harsh on him. Zack lost a child but was getting shyt on. I liked the universe they were setting up. On the Reeves movie front I think Batman is a great start to doing alternative universe movies with multiple Batmen in their world

    the thing is pattinson would have been a excellent cast as night wing in The DCU to Affleck's batman but him being batman/Bruce Wayne himself just doesn't do it for me but will give him a try when the first trailer drops

    people should know at this point to give shyts a chance before it comes out. Too many times cats end up looking stupid after the final product with that mindset. Now if it ends up being trash, so be it, but I doubt it's going to be.

    Affleck himself was good in the role but both Dawn Of Justice and Justice League was TRASH. I honestly don’t know why everyone thinks this Snyder cut is going to be the holy grail

    Are they willing to pay the insurance fee to make it happen?

    Dude has had 3 movies released since his issues became very public plus has like 5 movies in the works already.

    Studios have been gladly paying whatever insurance fees they need to for him to be in their projects this whole time. I doubt that will be an issue if they move forward with a batman project.

    Two of them were indie films and third one had a marginal sized budget on Netflix. He has a notable drinking and gambling history. The insurance costs are going to be through the roof for a big budget film as he could fall of the wagon again at any point and fukk up production.

    That’s why they removed him from the Batman role the first time.
