Superheroes are not the only ones viewers await in a superhero movie but also the villains, specifically the kind of destruction they could bring forth. Reportely, Ben Affleck’s standalone “Batman” movie will feature all- time favorite villains in a Batman movie.
It was previously reported that Ben Affleck would be directing and starring a solo Batman movie. Affleck recently portrayed the cape crusader in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Screen Rant reported that the actor’s portrayal of Batman in the said film was one of the best representations of the Dark Knight. And as a result, DC has decided to make a solo movie.
According to a report by Birth. Movies. Death, a source said that the film would be full of major Batman villains. Affleck who was working alongside Geoff Johns for the film, allegedly wanted to make this standalone movie the ultimate Batman film ever. To do this, epic battles should be featured in the movie. To have these great battles, great villains are part and parcel. As such, the team behind the movie is dead set on featuring major bad guys of Gotham City in the movie.
Some of the well-known villains of Batman are The Joker, The Penguin, The Riddler, and Two-Face. All of them have been featured in most of Batman films. If all of them are in one movie, a epic film is going to be expected. It would also be interesting to see another take on these villains and who would portray them for Affleck’s film.
There have been no official reports on the specific date for the film yet. There is a possibility that it would only take a while as DC has been trying to keep their Extended Universe on track after the disappointing reviews of “Batman v Superman” by the critics and with only $862 million earned.
