Some fans can't get enough of him while others are unconvinced, but Batfleck isn't going anywhere for a while.
Ben Affleck's moody Caped Crusader is gearing up for Zack Snyder's superhero mash-up Justice League, and his first solo outing is also on the horizon.
The Batman was penciled in for a 2018 release, and while that might be ambitious since it recently changed directors, details about the movie are trickling in.
The story will follow on from the Dark Knight's appearances in Justice League and its predecessor Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and serve as a key chapter in Warner Bros' rapidly expanding DC cinematic saga.
Affleck was originally down to write, direct and star in the film, but recent developments have scaled his role back, with War for the Planet of the Apes helmer Matt Reeves now overseeing the project.
One of our villains has already been confirmed (sort of), along with the lowdown on returning cast and crew, plus a some tidbits about the movie's tone. Add a few rumours and leaks into the mix and The Batman is starting to take shape.
