Ben Affleck as Batman

'The Batman' Script Reportedly Positive Among the Right People

by

The Batman is copping an enormous amount of spotlight lately, and it seems every day a new, conflicting report emerges. Today, it's Variety's Justin Kroll - who I should note broke the news the Affleck would not be directing - who has offered some news to negate yesterday's suggestion that the script was getting redone completely.

@BatmanNewsCom No, several sources already saying new script came in this month and everyone including Emmerich and Ben very happy with it

Kroll tweeted in response to questions on the truth behind Forbes' report.

@markhughesfilms@BatmanNewsCom To be fair, people overreact to rewrite or script work all the time. It just shows WB wants to get it right

So, there's no guarantee that their won't be rewrites, nor that it will necessarily be a bad thing, as is often the assumption. Rumours have The Batman coming out in 2019, so there's plenty more news to come over the next two years.
