Will 'The Batman' Be Connected To The DCEU?

While details are fuzzy as everything is in early stages, Warner Bros.is laying the foundation for multiple standalone projects that do not exist within the DC Extended Universe, as reported by Deadline. "Batman will be BATMAN..." "In my comments from a while back about not being part of the DCEU, I was talking about "The Batman' being a story specifically about Batman.not about the others in the Universe", he continued".

The Batman will be a part of the DC Extended Universe after all.

With Hollywood's love affair with franchises seems to grow exponentially every day, the recent flurry of headlines about a Joker origin story, "Suicide Squad" sequels and spinoffs, and major "Batman" casting news is enough to make your head spin.

A "standalone" movie that's "not part of the extended universe" could mean that Warner Bros.is letting Reeves off the leash and letting him do as he pleases - and why wouldn't they? Phillips will direct the movie, and Martin Scorsese will produce it with Phillips. Shazam! is supposed to be the next DCEU film in the pipeline, but it has gone through a major scope change with Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam no longer being part of it, and still doesn't have a lead star cast.

Additionally, the project falls within Warners' main line of movies based on their DC properties.

It seems ludicrous for the DCEU to banish its biggest hero from the main canon, so there's just one real reason why Warner would choose to set The Batman aside from Batman v Superman, Justice League, and subsequent movies - and that's to accommodate Ben Affleck's departure. Just the other day they even announced a standalone Joker origin movie that's presumably taking place in a separate canon.

The scale of the project led to internal problems and discussions of Apple not having a clear path for Titan. Apple's semi-secret dream for autonomous cars went by the subtle and modest name of Project Titan.

USA envoy for global negotiations Jason Greenblatt and deputy national security advisor Dina Powell also attended the meeting. But since taking office, Trump decided not to move the embassy and has urged Israel to restrain settlement construction.

I can't say for sure, though it's entirely possible that this could be Warner Bros.' way of harnessing the box office power of their most successful superhero without it being influenced by the embattled DCEU as it struggles to gets on its feet following the success of Wonder Woman and the sidelining of Zack Snyder.

The Batman is now in development and does not have a release date.

The War for the Planet of the Apes director, who was at the SDCC last month, shared his plans about the solo Batman movie with The Business.

"He's not going to do that movie, I don't think".

Reeves confirms that he has an idea for a Batman trilogy and that WB is excited about it. Either way, Reeves should be able to deliver a great Batman film, even if it turns out to not be the one that many people were/are expecting.
