The Title of Ben Affleck's Solo Batman Movie Has Been Confirmed
Ben Affleck has just confirmed the title for the Batman solo movie, and while it's exciting, it will surprise absolutely no one.


While promoting his upcoming movie, The Accountant, Affleck revealed that, as we all suspected, the title will indeed be "The Batman":

Opening quote
The movie I think is going to be called The Batman. At least that's what we're going with right now. I might change it… That's about all I got right now. We're working on the script, the script is going well, I'm really excited about it.
Closing quote

It seems that the title may be subject to change, but this is the first official-ish confirmation we've had of the name. It's actually a pretty epic title, although we heard about it a long time ago, and makes up for lack of excitement with elegance and simplicity. 

Even more exciting than the title confirmation is the notion that Affleck is hard at work on the script. Although his acting career has taken off lately, his best work has been as a writer/director, and we can't wait to see which avenue he takes for the solo Batman movie. The fact that he's working on it with Batman/DC vet Geoff Johns, and that they are rumored to have complete creative control, is just icing on the cake. 

The Batman has no official release date, but is rumored to be scheduled for 2018.
