    Affleck was great as older Batman. I'm excited for this, even if B vs. S was a joke.

    Well, if they've already announced his casting this early, then I expect it's probably him in the suit for the footage Affleck showed :cool:.

    Well I was wrong about Deathstroke not being in the movie. Nice choice, I've been wanting to see a Batman/Deathstroke fight onscreen since Arkham Origins. I like the choice of casting, Mangianello has been rumoured for Deathstroke since Suicide Squad.

    Yeah, actually he looks like Manu Bennett anyway. So it'll work.

    Not too excited about this, I'm sick of only getting Batman I want to see the Batfamily.

    Agree I to see Nightwing done right live action for the first time. And add in Green Arrow also.

    I'd be shocked if we don't at least see Nightwing or an allusion to a Batgirl in this movie, even if the central focus will obviously still be on Batman :).

    Well, alot of people assumed those two mystery DC films would be either Batman solo or Man of Steel 2. I think the Oct 2017 could be either this or Dark Universe which already had most preproduction work done by GDT.

    As for Nightwing, yes please. A kinda snarky Dick Grayson would do wonders (no pun intended) for this universe. If they find the right actor, it could work.

    Yeah, that mystery October 5, 2018 or November 1, 2019 slot. Though I find it odd to see a Batman movie given that late Fall slot and not the summer slot. If the former, I hope they stick with a late fall release like with Justice League rather than panic and swap out Aquaman from the July 27, 2018 slot currently. All the past live action Batman movies have been June or July going back to the old serials, I believe.

    Who's to say we won't? We already know Jason Todd has existed in this universe, so this movie may bring about the introduction of Tim Drake. It could be interesting character arc for Bruce in allowing him to become open to having another Robin after what happened to Jason.

    Working title of Affleck's solo film: The Batman

    I'm expecting some radical redesigns with Jared Leto making a quick, yet frantic cameo fight in dreads and a freakshow attire (though a straight jacket would be fine as well). ;)

    But at least the Germans will have fun with the translated title: Die Batman.

    I think that's the best title to use, coming off of 'The Wolverine', 'The Predator', etc. I suspect Man of Steel 2, will be called 'The Last Son of Krypton' or 'Son of Krypton'.

    I'll be disappointed if Penguin shows up and he's not flocked by two Kabuki twins :p.

    ^I know you guys are taking the name as ironic for the animated series, but I think we can pretty much bet this will be modeled after the Arkham videogames.

    Affleck explains why they chose Deathstroke:

    Does this mean we're getting the Ethan Bennett Clayface? If so, I'm very much okay with that. ;) Really, I never liked the title as an animated series and I don't like it here. I always found myself over annunciating the "The" in the title for some reason when saying it out loud.
