Ben Affleck's Batman Movie to be Set in Arkham Asylum?
While many fans weren't crazy about Batman v Superman, one thing about the film that most could agree on was that Ben Affleck made a pretty solid Batman. So we were pretty excited when we heard that Affleck will not only star in an upcoming solo Batman film, but will also direct and co-write the film. Now, details about the upcoming movie are starting to leak out, and if you weren't excited already, you will be. 

The latest rumors claim that the film will be centered around Arkham Asylum. Arkham is of course the notorious psychiatric hospital where Gotham's most dangerously insane criminals are held, and it could make for a fantastic and high-stress setting for a film. Arkham is also notable for inspiring the highly popular Arkham video game series, which has gone a long way toward popularizing the grittier, darker Batman that has come to the forefront in recent years.

According to Batman on Film, the film would not only take place mostly within Arkham's walls, but the plot would center on Batman himself being locked up there. They don't give a reason why, but the idea of Batman being imprisoned in Arkham and surrounded by all the psychos he put in there is giving us goosebumps. It's just an unconfirmed rumor at this point, but we're really hoping it turns out to be true.
