Legendary Batman Producer Says a Major Announcement is Coming at New York Comic Con
A major Batman announcement is coming to the Dark Knight's hometown comic con next week, that is according to legendary Batman producer, Michael Uslan. Speaking on the Fan Theory podcast, the Batman v Superman EP said fans should keep an ear out for a major announcement during New York Comic Con's Saturday programming.



Opening quote
On Saturday October 10 we plan on making a major announcement. Stay tuned. Join us at 1:45 p.m. in one of the large rooms. You won't want to miss what's going to take place there.
Closing quote

That's certainly a pretty huge tease coming from a man who has had a major hand in just about every Batman movie ever, from Batman v Superman to the Dark Knight Trilogy, to Batman (1989). While Uslan didn't even remotely hint at what the announcement would be, the fact that it is Uslan talking about it would suggest it has something to do with Batman's big screen presence. Granted, Uslan makes no mention of this being a Batman-specific announcement, but again, the fact it is Uslan talking means only one superheroes name is on our minds.

Could we finally be getting confirmation of a solo Batman movie from Ben Affleck? If you look at the time and the date provided by Uslan, it would certainly seem to fit. At 1:30pm on NYCC's Empire stage, there's a panel entitled Batman: The Bat-Universe, and you only have to look at the names of the panel's guests to know that this is where the magic will happen. Check out the description below:
