Robert Pattinson isn’t going to be the only Dark Knight in town when The Batman is released. The plan at DC Films is to produce not just one, but two separate Batman movie franchises running simultaneously. DC Films president Walter Hamada revealed the company’s plans to develop the two series separate from each other.
Walter also confirmed that a new actor will be brought in to replace Ben Affleck, but they do plan on continuing the story line set in the previous films.
If Affleck’s replacement will be playing the same incarnation of his Batman in the DCEU, then a solo Batman movie following this version would also be able to bring in other DCEU characters for special appearances. That means we just might see Leto’s Joker mingling with Batman for longer than it takes to drink a cup of coffee, or even some of Bruce’s superhero pals like Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman or Henry Cavill as Superman.
The question is… do fans really want this?
