Although Rocksteady had decided to call it a day on the series with Batman: Arkham Knight, it’s been unclear as to whether Warner Bros. would be planning any further entries in the Arkham franchise, such as the prequel Batman: Arkham Origins, which was developed by WB Games Montreal.
Well, if you were hoping to pay another visit to Gotham City, you may be disappointed to hear that, according to voice actor Kevin Conroy, we may have seen the last of the Arkham franchise.
“I can’t believe that they’re not going to do another one, but they’re not. Isn’t that amazing?” said Conroy at Wizard World Nashville (via Batman-News). “They made literally billions of dollars on those games, but no, there’s no plan to do another one. Sorry.”

A short one act play, in response to this recent hubbub during the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con.
To boob, or not to boob, that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind of cosplayers to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fans and parents
Or to take arms against a sea of tsk-tsks,
And by opposing, end them.
To diet (to fit in a form-fitting costume) – to sleep on the floor of your con hotel suite –
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks
That the display of flesh is heir to. ‘Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d of the fans to see.
For those not playing along, let’s cut to the chase. This past weekend, a cosplay maven – with distinct permission to come in her much-worked-upon Silent Hill cosplay – was jeered and leered at by some in the crowd, »

Many comic book fans will tell you that when they sit down to read the latest Batman issue, it’s Kevin Conroy’s voice they hear. The legendary actor will have been voicing the gravelly-toned Caped Crusader for 25 years this September – a run which has spanned animated cartoons, movies, and video games – and he shows no signs of retiring any time soon.
His latest project is Batman and Harley Quinn, and during our conversation we quizzed him about reuniting with Loren Lester, getting to show Batman’s more comedic side, and comic book stories he’d love to see get the animated movie treatment. Have a read below…
First off, I wanted to say congratulations in advance, because next month will be the »

This review contains minor spoilers.
Does the world need a Nightwing miniseries? That’s like asking if a second scoop of vanilla ice cream is necessary. The answer, of course, is a resounding yes. It also doesn’t hurt that Nightwing: The New Order brings together the creative team of Kyle Higgins, who rejuvenated Dick Grayson during the New 52 era, and artist Trevor McCarthy, who provided killer artwork for the series in the early 2000s. It’s an all-star affair that looks set to produce a kickass storyline.
This Elseworlds tale takes place in an authoritarian Gotham City in 2040 where superpowers have been eliminated and outlawed. No longer Nightwing, Dick is the man responsible for it all and has now become the leader of a government task force called the Crusaders. His team hunts down the remaining metahumans to keep the world “safe,” ensuring that the former Boy Wonder is »

Batfleck Trilogy Back On The Cards?
Just prior to San Diego Comic Con, the trade papers began to report that Warner Bros. and DC were having concerns with Ben Affleck as Batman in their DC Extended Universe, but the actor himself dismissed the rumours. According to a new – and very dubious – report, Fortress of Solicitude are claiming that Affleck has signed on for a brand new trilogy of movies directed by Matt Reeves, which would lead into Batman Beyond. Take all this with a pinch of salt, and read more here.
We spoke with Wish Upon director John R. Leonetti about his upcoming movie, and managed to squeeze in a question about his thoughts on James Wan’s upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot. Leonetti directed 1997’s Mortal Kombat: Annihilation and has worked with Wan on movies such as The Conjuring and Insidious. “We haven’t talked in a while, »

On the eve of the San Diego Comic-Con, a report emerged claiming that Ben Affleck’s future as Batman was in doubt – something that the actor vehemently denied during the Dceu panel at Comic-Con last weekend.
It seemed a lot of the original report was based on director Matt Reeves’ comments that he had plans for a Batman trilogy, something which would likely take Affleck well into his 50s were it to come together.
Well, if (and there’s a definite emphasis on ‘if’ here) a report from Fortress of Solitude is to be believed, Affleck has now officially signed on to star in three Batman movies from Reeves, leading to a Batman Beyond feature film.

It’s been a tough couple of weeks for fans of the Caped Crusader, as Ben Affleck’s commitment to Warner Bros.’ burgeoning cinematic universe has been called into question more times than we can count. Even with the actor reaffirming his love of the character at San Diego Comic-Con, doubt was still cast over his involvement beyond Matt Reeves’ The Batman and of course, the studio is refusing to comment.
But some good news surfaced earlier today when we were told that not only had Affleck reportedly signed on for the entire planned trilogy that Reeves is cooking up, but that the studio was also plotting a Batman Beyond film. It seemed too good to be true and indeed, it was, as now that report has been debunked by two separate sources via Twitter: Batman-News and scoopster extraordinaire, Umberto Gonzalez.

While fans of the Dark Knight have certainly had a lot to endure this past week by being pulled in opposite directions when it comes to who to believe regarding Ben Affleck’s involvement in The Batman, all we can really do as moviegoers is sit back and hope for the best film possible – and ponder what may lie beyond.
Now, I’m not one to rule out Affleck hanging around for at least one solo flick in order to truly leave his stamp on the enduring icon, but the fact of the matter is that he’s not getting any younger. Plus, we have to take into account that Reeves is said to be mapping out a trilogy, so, if you figure the two subsequent installments will arrive two or three years apart from each other, that’s quite the commitment for an aging actor to make. Still, it’s not impossible or unwelcome, »

According to a source from Warner Bros., Ben Affleck has signed on to appear in Matt Reeves’ The Batman trilogy. Reportedly, Affleck will assume the mantle of the Dark Knight for at least three more films, with the last leading towards a Batman Beyond film, which will kickstart the next phase of the Dceu. “Yeah, […] »

Well, this probably isn’t the kind of headline Warner Bros. wants on the eve of its huge DC Films panel at the San Diego Comic-Con International tomorrow, but according to The Hollywood Reporter the studio is quietly working on a plan to phase out Ben Affleck’s Batman from the Dceu, with the outlet even going so far as to claim that Justice League may be the last time he dons the cape and cowl.
Affleck was of course initially attached to direct The Batman, only to step away earlier this year, with War for the Planet of the Apes’ Matt Reeves signing on as his replacement. However, despite rumours that Affleck was looking to quit the movie and the Dceu entirely, Reeves has recently came out and said that Affleck is still attached to the solo movie (although he is ditching Affleck’s script and starting from scratch).

Ben Affleck wasn't in the best Batman movie, but he still brought my favorite live-action portrayal of both the masked vigilante and his alter-ego, Bruce Wayne, to life. Affleck first took on the role in 2016's Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and will be appearing in this fall's Justice League. Past that, Affleck was originally set to write, direct, and star in The Batman, the caped crusader's first solo adventure in the DC Extended Universe. Affleck has already dropped out of the director's chair, making way for Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes), who is also said to be reworking the script from scratch. But, Affleck will still play Batman in the character's first solo outing since The Dark Knight Rises, right?
Maybe not. The Hollywood Reporter says they have a source "with knowledge of the situation" who says that Warner Brothers and DC are working »

According to THR, this year's Justice League movie might be the last time we see Ben Affleck in the Batsuit. Warner Bros is reportedly working on "gracefully ushering" the actor out of the role in an upcoming DC film.
It's unclear if this means that Matt Reeves' upcoming Batman movie will need a new star, but that's probably the case since Reeves is apparently planning a trilogy. Reeves had previously confirmed that his movie would feature Reeves as Batman. That said, it wouldn't be too hot to recast your main character in the second installment of your trilogy. DC would probably do well to cast a new actor before the new trilogy gets underway.
While The Batman doesn't have a solid release date as of yet, it's safe to say »
