Warner Bros. is having a difficult time reigning in its Batman solo film, and it's certainly had plenty of drama around it. That culminated in Ben Affleck's departure from the director's chair, but the latest report points further, and it looks like the script is getting a page one rewrite.

DC Fans Want Zack Snyder to Direct 'The Batman'

DC Fans Want Zack Snyder to Direct 'The Batman'

Zack Snyder has come under his fair (probably unfair) share of scrutiny since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and many lack faith in his vision for the DCEU. The short trailer for Justice League last year quelled some fears, regarding tone at least, and that, coupled with the impressive Batman we got in the aforementioned film has seemingly won over a legion of DC fans.

With the anticipation of Ben Affleck's Batman solo movie down the pipe line, we have had a verity of different news regarding batflicks new grand adventure. Ben has made it clear, that he does not want to start production until the script is nailed down to a point that he would deem it Batworthy. I think that this solo adventure might be the defining DC movie because of one simple reason that DC keep neglecting. Ben is taking his time! The key reason that DC movies keep falling short is because they rush their projects into production so fast, that they neglect to catch all the plot holes that plague their stories. In the race to beat Marvel in the box office, they need to realize that Marvel took many years in becoming the cinematic power house that it has become. They took their time with all aspects of the film process. DC can be just as good if not better than Marvel, if they can just simple slow down and develop their amazing rolodex of superhero's. Wonder Women will set up the up rise of DC, but Batman will define their legacy just as Christopher Nolan's films did. On press junkets for Bens resent films, the Batman question is repeated with each interviewer. He states to them all that he wont begin production until the script is up to his standers. I can fully understand if Ben seems overwhelmed with this project. To create a new solo Batman movie that quickly follows up after the underwhelming Batman V Superman film, this movie needs to work...and it can. There were several spot on depictions of Bruce and Batman that they nailed down. Not to mention the amazing warehouse fight scene! That's how Batman fights! If they keep that same feel and intensity they can create one hell of a Batman movie. Only time will tell what happens in the next big screen adventure of The Batman.

We got word from Ben Affleck a few weeks ago, that he was taking his time in finishing the Batman solo film script. Ben mentioned that he did not want to rush the project and that it's not in his best interest to just push something out that he felt wasn't fully development yet. Well it seems that the time has come to take another step towards production. Variety caught up with Ben at a screening at New York’s Metrograph Theater last night. Ben indicated to them that his script would be ready to shoot for a spring release. No word yet on if the film will be called ''The Batman'' but at least we have an idea when production will begin. Ben stated that he is very exited that things are coming together and that they were still finishing up the script. While everything seems to be on track according to Ben, no official word as to when film acutely begins.
