Ben Affleck's Batman movie confirmed to release in 2018

Ben Affleck Just Said the Absolute Sweetest Thing About Jennifer Garner

Silverman then talked to Deadline about the studio's future, and ran through all its big films in 2018 before saying "And then there is Ben Affleck's Batman" to wrap up the summary. "Angelina Jolie had a bad movie ('Beyond Borders") that year and no one cared.

The Oscar victor told NYT journalist that, "She's the greatest mom in the world".

"I respect all of those [Batman] movies", he said. "Christopher Nolan did an incredible job, Christian Bale did an incredible job, Tim Burton did an incredible job. I was like, 'What is this, hurricane coverage?'" Ben added. The pair previously appeared onscreen together in 2001's Pearl Harbor, but began a relationship after starring in 2003's Daredevil.

Actor/director Ben Affleck (L) and actress Jennifer Garner attend the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Graydon Carter on March 2, 2014 in West Hollywood, California. "The entrance of my children into the world", he said. Well, yes. But that doesn't mean Affleck is in a huge hurry to make it happen. That's what we're doing, and I'm hoping to get that done.

"They need you to focus, and they need your attention", she said.

Affleck and Garner announced their split in June 2015 after 10 years of marriage. And with Warner Bros. pushing the Justice League sequel back in order to make room for Batman on the calendar, that seemed to indicate that we wouldn't see the Dark Knight's solo DCEU adventure until sometime in 2019, as that was when the Justice League sequel was slated to release. On Monday, Affleck - promoting his latest directorial effort, Live by Night - revealed that his son pushed him to play the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in the film.

But when he outlined what to expect from Warner 2018, he snuck in the revelation that The Batman is now less than two years away. He thinks I'm in my Batcave right now. Affleck will be reprising his role as Batman in the upcoming Warner Bros. and DC movie, "Justice League", which has been slated to premiere on November 17, 2017.
