Now the film's writer/director Matt Reeves has spoken to THR about his plans for the film, which includes a more noir Batman doing real detective work, as well as an extensive rogues gallery! At Comic-Con 2017, the actor appeared excited for his next Batman movie, telling the crowd, "I'm the luckiest guy". Titled The Suicide Squad, the film is also scheduled for a 2021 release, as per The Hollywood Reporter. WB has scheduled the movie for an August 2021 release, which should give plenty of time to develop this fully. I guess we will share any further news we find as it happens, so watch this space.

One would imagine those talks will progress well and I think we can pretty much say, that barring some drastic differences of opinion, Gunn will write and direct the movie for WB/DC.

Now comes the speculation as to who he'll cast. Maybe we can all finally get off the "Ben Affleck is Batman no more!" merry-go-round.
"In terms of what Tim and I discussed for the movie, I knew we were right on", he said in 2017, 25 years on from his second and final Bat-outing in Batman Returns. "I'd love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime".
