Okay everyone, please read carefully. Yesterday, we posted a story about the script for The Batman that didn’t paint a pretty picture. Our sources stated that there would be either heavy rewrites or that the original script may be scrapped entirely and a new one written. Well, it’s a new day and we have some new news for you about the script that takes us to the complete opposite end of the spectrum, so we here at SuperCineverse humbly apologize for the 180 degree turn that we’re about to make. Is everyone ready?
It has now been reported by Variety, specifically reporter Justin Kroll, that the script for The Batman has indeed already been completed and was submitted earlier this month. Kroll also goes on to state that not only is star/producer Ben Affleck very pleased with this script but, additionally, senior management at Warner Bros. are equally tickled about it as well. “Very happy”, is what President and Chief Content Officer Toby Emmerich, has been quoted as stating about the script. Might I also add that it was Kroll who initially broke the news that Affleck was leaving the director’s chair in prior weeks.
I’m going to go with my gut on this one and go on record as saying that this may indeed, finally, be accurate intel on this situation. Kudos goes out to Batman-News who connected with Kroll via Twitter to get the full poop on the situation and possibly put all of the rumors to rest. Here’s how the conversation went:
Since it was last reported that screenwriter Chris Terrio was being brought in to make some final tweaks to the script that Affleck and comic book writer Geoff Johns worked on together, I believe that it can be safely presumed that this was the version of the script that was ultimately submitted.
Still scheduled to arrive in theaters sometime within 2019, don’t be surprised if production is delayed on The Batman until Warner Bros. selects a new director to take the helm of this greatly anticipated project. WHEW! Is it me or does anyone else feel like they’re watching a tennis match when it comes to this film?
