Batman gets new script?

 

Last month we got word that executive producer and star of “The Batman” film, Ben Affleck was stepping down as its director but would help Warner Bros. find another director for the film. Shortly after that we found out that they were bringing in Chris Terrio to rewrite the entire script and trashing Ben Affleck’s and Geoff John’s screenplay. Well it seems that we have had some more light shined on the script that got tossed to the wayside. It was reported the Ben was writing a script that consisted of two major villains of the Batman mythology, Deathstroke and Hush.

Affleck had been reading a lot of the New 52 continuity and felt that the Deathstroke in the series worked really well against an older, jaded Batman.

It was later revealed that Affleck also wanted to add in Hush to pull Batman back into a place of emotional turmoil.

As of yesterday we received word from a very reliable source, Variety Film-Reporter, Justin Kroll who tweeted out in response to @BatmanNewsCon question about the state of the film. Things may be looking up for the film, both Affleck and President and Chief Content Officer, Toby Emmerich are said to “very happy” with the script. Click below to read full conversation.

Justin Kroll on Twitter: “@BatmanNewsCom No, several sources …

11 hours ago @krolljvar any truth to the rumors that The Batman script is being redone from scratch? … @BatmanNewsCom @krolljvar who is emmerich?

 

With this tweet some fires seem to have been put out but without a director and cast members scheduling conflicts during the summer, will Warner Bros. still be able to make their deadline. It seems that “The Batman” may miss its shooting schedule in the Fall and could jeopardize its 2018 release. If this happens and it gets pushed to 2019 how will that hurt the current line up of D.C. Films?

What do you think about the script that Affleck and John wrote, are Deathstroke and Hush ideal for this film? Do you feel “The Batman” can make its 2018 release? What does this mean for the rest of the DC extended universe? Comment below.
