Matt Reeves' upcoming superhero tentpole hits theaters on June 25, 2021. In any case, the new prince of Gotham will play a younger Batman than the one plaid by Ben Affleck and Christian Bale.

Affleck made his DC Extended Universe (DCEU) debut as the Caped Crusader in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, while making a cameo in 2016's Suicide Squad and then starring in 2017's Justice League.

Hours after his Cannes duties in designer duds, he would be on a plane to Los Angeles to face perhaps the biggest test of his acting career: putting on a Batsuit for director Matt Reeves, who is casting The Batman. Affleck starred as Batman in the two titles directed by Zack Snyder: 2016's "Batman V. Superman" and 2017's "Justice League." Both films received mixed reviews and were viewed as somewhat disappointing for Warner Bros.
