Final month, Matt Reeves started providing some new particulars on his imaginative and prescient for The Batman, and although he didn’t particularly say so on the time, it looks as if his imaginative and prescient is perhaps loads totally different from what Ben Affleck was initially planning for the film. That’s as a result of Reeves just lately stated on MTV’s Pleased Unhappy Confused podcast that he ditched the unique script that Affleck had labored on, saying that “it’s a brand new story” and that they’re “simply beginning once more.”
That comes The Hollywood Reporter, and whereas it’s in all probability higher for The Batman in the long term, it does imply that what little we knew in regards to the authentic script—particularly that grasp murderer Deathstroke was the primary villain—might have been modified. Joe Manganiello was purported to play the one-eyed killer within the film, however in March he prompt that he didn’t actually know what was occurring with The Batman anymore. That appears to point that Deathstroke will not be within the film, and that appears much more probably whenever you throw in circumstantial proof like Josh Gad inexplicably tweeting a photograph of The Penguin or the TV model of Deathstroke out of the blue making a reasonably surprising return on The CW’s Arrow.
We will’t actually know for positive simply but, however don’t be shocked if Slade Wilson doesn’t present up in The Batman and Oswald Cobblepot does.
