Ben Affleck Reveals the Title for his Solo Batman Film, Explains Deathstroke Choice
Ben Affleck's solo Batman has a title. It's been given the moniker simply, 'The Batman,' suitable and to the point, really. The actor also spoke with Collider to explain why he believes Deathstroke is the right choice for this Batman.
“He’s a great villain because—I just had an instinctive feeling that he would match up with him well. You know, I’m a big admirer of that character as well, especially in the New 52 the way that they did Deathstroke, and I thought that it could work.”
Deathstroke is a fan-favourite villain and at time anti-hero who debuted in a famous Teen Titans book and has since become his own man, which a solo title in the DC line of comics.
Affleck has noted that the title could change as the script evolves, so there are no guarantees. Deathstroke was first revealed about a month or so ago, and it's common knowledge that Affleck is working on the script with DC Film Head Geoff Johns.
