The Batman is an upcoming superhero film based on the DC Comics character of the same name. It will be a completely new interpretation of the character, unbound to previously established continuity by Zack Snyder. It has been described as having a stronger focus on detective work than previous film versions.


Batman must solve a murder mystery involving all the villains, with the help of Commissioner Gordon.



This project originally started out being written and directed by Ben Affleck, who also had intended to star in the film. The story has been radically altered, originally Deathstroke was the lead villain.
