'The Batman' Gets 2021 Release Date & Will Not Star Ben Affleck!

The Batman just got a release date!

The upcoming installment in the Batman series will be hitting theaters on June 25, 2021, Deadline reported on Wednesday (January 30).

Matt Reeves will write and direct the film, which will not star Ben Affleck as the leading superhero after portraying Batman in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and Justice League.

The reason is because this movie will focus on “a younger Bruce Wayne.”

“Excited for #TheBatman in Summer 2021 and to see @MattReevesLA vision come to life,” Ben tweeted when the news was announced.
