The Batman Movie Announcement Breakdown – Batman 2021


Welcome back everyone it’s Charlie you may
have seen the recent interview Ben Affleck talking about what was going on
with his version of the Batman why he passed the torch to Matt Reeves and
Robert Pattinson what his version of the Batman movie was going to be what their
version is going to be and how things have changed behind the scenes it’s all
very fascinating so we’ll break it all down if you’re new to the channel be
sure to subscribe to get all the videos I’ll be doing a lot more Batman videos
now that they’re in the middle of shooting the Batman movie we’re getting
a lot more details about what’s going to be going on so we just break this down
top 7 style starting with number 7 Ben Affleck has been doing press interviews
recently for his new indie movie promoting that you’ve probably seen him
a lot in the news he’s been way more active on his Twitter account wally was
doing those he revealed the real reason why he chose to stop being Batman in the
first place and decided not to do his version of the Batman movie instead
passing the torch to Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson as we all saw they just
released the teaser of him in the costume obviously it’s a big creative
redesign for the characters they’ve shifted his new movies into the past so
it’s kind of a prequel of sorts even though it’s not meant to officially be a
prequel to Ben Affleck’s Batman but it’s kind of the same thing that the studio
did when Christopher Nolan came on to the Dark Knight trilogy after they did
the Schumacher trilogy just a completely different creative aspect and approach
to the Batman character the big thing about Ben Affleck’s interview though is
that it’s a stark contrast to what people were saying about what was going
on at the time when he initially announced that he wasn’t going to be
Batman anymore because it went on for a long time there
were a lot of delays with his Batman movie if you don’t remember they
actually announced that it was going to happen they said Ben Affleck will write
and direct his own Batman movie everyone got really excited it was at the
beginning of 2016 because Ben Affleck was coming off as oscar-winning director
run we hadn’t seen Batman V Superman yet but we gotten a teaser for the movie so
we knew that that was coming up we knew that they were going to make Justice
League so the Batman movie that they announced was going to happen after the
Justice League movie but there was all this cool stuff coming up everyone was
really excited I think it was at CinemaCon in 2016 when they announced
the Batman movie but at the time the trades were reporting that his Batman
movie was supposed to come out fall 2018 or fall 2019 remember that this is 2016
when they’re announcing this so there was still way down the road that that
was going to happen that was also with a time when they were still going to do a
trilogy of Justice League film so they weren’t
going to start filming the Batman movie with Ben Affleck till after they
finished filming all three of those Justice League films their plan was very
similar to the way that Marvel filmed Avengers infinity war in Avengers
endgame just doing it back-to-back so it was way more filming time for the actors
but is because they were doing two giant films at the same time
number six but then as we all saw Batman V Superman came out a couple
months later after they had announced the Batman movie divided Orion PSA’s so
much that the studio Warner Brothers panicked and that’s when all the drama
on the set of Justice League started in the start of what a lot of Ben Affleck
refers to as his own personal problems his personal demons flaring up that’s
when he says a lot of his drinking problems got really bad just because of
the stress of filming the Justice League movie and all the stuff that happened
behind the scenes on that one of the early problems that they had with
Justice League though is that they had already started filming it when Batman V
Superman hit theaters so the studio wanted to make all these changes while
they were already in the middle of filming this original vision that they
had for this trilogy then things got even worse later that year when Suicide
Squad came out and did even worse wound up being a disaster so the studio
panicked even more they went up changing their plans again for Justice League
instead of doing it to films they would just do one Justice League film and then
obviously as we know Zack Snyder was forced to leave the project for family
reasons so number five what happened after that is originally Ben Affleck was
supposed to roll right into production on directing the Batman movie for a 2019
release date and that was going to be his last major film as the Batman character
he and Geoff Johns had finished their script a long time before all the
Justice League stuff started happening so the script was sitting on a shelf it
was ready to go but now Ben Affleck this past week said that the reason why his
version of the Batman movie didn’t move forward like we all thought it would was
because all the trouble they had on set doing Justice League exacerbated his own
inner demons in drinking problems he said at the time he had shown the batman
movies script to some people everyone said it looked like a great movie it
seemed like it was going to be a slam dunk he was a great director in his own right
so there was no reason to believe that he couldn’t do it but the sheer toll of
directing and being the lead actor in the same movie and it being a major
50 million dollar studio tentpole film at that seems so insurmountable the
stress seems so great that both he and his closest inner-circle of friends were
worried that the stress of it all would cause him to drink himself to death so
his main reason for leaving the Batman role and his version of the Batman movie
passing the torch to Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson was more him thinking
about his own well-being the well-being of his family his own personal health at
the time there were all kinds of terrible rumors about the studio not
being happy with his version of the movie turns out that’s all bullcrap
everything was fine it was just Ben Affleck was in a very bad place
personally in none of his friends or family wanted to see him kill himself
slowly trying to make a Batman movie so number four what was his version of the
Batman movie going to be well you remember the Deathstroke teaser that Ben
Affleck posted himself a couple years ago that airplane hangar that was
actually them testing out the special effects in the costume for Joe
Manganiello Deathstroke for the Batman movie he was originally going to be the
main villain of that Batman movie the script that he and Geoff Johns wrote the
studio had big plans for Deathstroke as a character within the DC Universe –
they had a cameo in the Justice League post-credit scene they were originally
going to do a Deathstroke solo movie currently that’s not happening right now
I think they kind of shelve that permanently what we do know about his
version of the Batman movies script is that it would have been a version of the
raid redemption set in Arkham Asylum with Batman being forced to fight his
way down floor-by-floor through a gauntlet of his own worst villains that
he himself had personally put in Arkham there weren’t any big reports about why
he had to fight his way through Arkham if it had anything to do with the Joker
obviously at the time that’s still Jared Leto’s version of the Joker or if it was
a baby Yoda situation with a child that he was trying to save that was being
held in the lower levels if you’ve never seen the raid movie it’s actually a
pretty badass foreign film but it would have been a very self-contained
Batman gauntlet run inside Arkham kind of like the batman arkham games at the
time it if it wasn’t clear that movie would have taken place after the events
of the Justice League movie because the movie would have come out after Justice
League and we’re still with Ben Affleck’s version of the character it
wouldn’t have been a prequel or anything like that number three so then what
happened after Ben Affleck made the final decision to pass on the project
was letting the studio know and that’s when they hired Matt Reeves to write and
produce and direct a new man movie recasting the role which would
eventually wind up being Robert Pattinson as we all saw when they
brought on Matt Reeves for the project part of his deal was that he would be
able to do his own version of the Batman the studio also kind of wanted to
differentiate this new version of the Batman from the Ben Affleck version that
had come before like sort of creatively retuned things even though there were a
lot of good things about Ben Affleck’s Batman but that was also part of the
reason for going with a younger version of Batman 1 because Matt Reeves really
wanted to do a Batman year 2 year 3 story early in his career a lot of this
all coincides with the leadership changes behind the scenes at Warner
Brothers they decided to clean house behind the scenes and stick with the
stuff that was working already not change any of that stuff and just retune
some of the bigger stuff that they weren’t super happy with we’re in the
case of people like Ben Affleck who didn’t want to continue playing their
character just bring in a totally new team to reimagine the character during a
different time period so number two right now Matt Reeves first Batman movie
is being made with the same intent that Christopher Nolan had when he first
started making Batman Begins they were coming off the schumacher Batman movies
and they wanted to creatively reimagine the character but Christopher Nolan did
not have a green light for the Dark Knight yet when he was making Batman
Begins his deal initially was just for that first Batman movie and they were
like well this Batman movie does well then we’ll do another one but one movie
at a time obviously the studio saw Batman Begins when it was almost
finished and said okay you know this Christopher Nolan guy seems like he
knows what he’s doing let’s give him some more money to make more of these
Batman movies but that was sort of a different era of big comic-book movies
before the dawn of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that’s when all of Hollywood
all the other Studios got thirsty for their own cinematic universes which is
where a lot of Warner Brothers problems with their DC movies started trying to
rush out their own version of the MCU instead of taking their time to
establish all their main players first so because they just released the new
Batman teaser with Robert Pattinson number one a lot of people asking if
his version of the Batman will ever crossover with other Justice League
characters because there are a lot of them now they’re going to be a ton more DC
films with different characters well right now everything that the studio the
producers and Matt Reeves himself have said I think the only way that Robert
Pattinson is Batman ever winds up in a future Justice League movie or big
crossover movie with another Justice League character is if he still
wants to be Batman after the third new Batman movie in their trilogy that
wouldn’t happen for a minimum of six to eight years depending on how long they
take between movies in its minimum two years between big Batman sequels I think
the big takeaway from all this is that everyone just give Ben Affleck a lot
more sympathy now based on all the Batman stuff that happened because
obviously he was thinking of his own health and I think he made the right
choice nobody wants to see him slowly kill himself just to get another Batman
movie out so everyone post your reactions in the comments below do you
think that he made the right decision and obviously I’ll be doing more Batman
videos as we learn more about what’s going on with the Batman movie the
Batman character in the future everyone click here to rewatch that new Batman
teaser trailer that they just dropped and click here for my brand new venom to
carnage video thank you so much for watching everybody stay awesome this is

  • Here's my new The Batman Movie video and Ben Affleck Batman reveal Breakdown. Post all your reactions in the comments. Here's my full 2021 Batman Teaser video and Easter Eggs video too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYCHWd_mze0&t=0s

  • Dc need to get it together I love the comics but making the movies suck compared to marvel movies they made a lead up to the movies they created they just rushed into it like wtf

  • I hated Ben Aflek as Batman. I am thankful he will no longer be batman, I have suffered enough.

  • Ah Ben, man, I was so bummed to hear you are out. But watching this, we get it. Ben, put yourself first. 100% support.

  • I happy with that news

  • What if when Ben is fully healthy again and he wants to come back to being Batman (his version). That would be surprising and dope wouldn't it?

  • Don't know what the fuck is going on but is this going to be a dark origin movie like the joker?

  • Of course I wish Batfleck all the good health

  • That batsuit is the same shit of the videogames with that batarmor… The same shit.

  • I think if they wanted to cross him over they have an easy out in the flash movie to make it happen. I think they are waiting to see if he becomes popular after the first movie

  • Ben did the right thing

  • I just hope to see more Deathstroke on the big screen. That screen test had me screaming for weeks!

  • Still want it! The older version of Batman!!!

  • “Life” is always the right decision. I may not agree with Ben Affleck very much, but I’m glad he got some help.

  • I’m really glad WB are going back to solo films rather than Universe ones. Joker was the start and hopefully we can get some more interesting films 😎

  • They need to give Batman a rest already…

  • I really want them to copy the spiderman eyes and give batman the white eyes. I hate seeing batmans eyes

  • I don't like the new Batman suit it sucks

  • So American superheroes are going to be a bunch of Europeans. Typical american outsourcing.

  • does DC only have what? 1 hero? Batman this batman that for how many decades now… cant they flush out their other heroes

  • Ben Affleck definitely made the right choice for his own mental health and sanity. I'm glad for him. It was needed

  • The bars high on this one but Im sure it'll exceed expectations.

  • I wonder if he is going to be called Batman during the movie? It doesn't show the points on his cowl or a full bat symbol on his chest.

  • I wish he would've stayed playing batman but let someone else direct. But oh well, now what're they gonna do in future dc crossover movies

  • A Vampire playing as Batman?

    Makes sense

  • He gave up bad man cos of stupid shit like do you bleed larp

  • This video gave me nothing

  • Ben affleck was a decent batman

  • Notice the money clip on the suit. Hell yah.

  • Is that the actual score in the beginning of this video calls it is amazing especially that last little piece

  • The Raid films are not just pretty bad ass they are the epitome of bad ass! The guys behind these movies have gone on to choreograph loads of films since. Do you your self a massive favour if you havent watched them get on it right now you'll feel super pumped by the end and want to smash some tiles with a face or two.

  • Best Batmen look in game :/ will be cool if finaly they create same in movie

  • Ben is the worst batman

  • I’m not upset about Affleck not being Batman anymore but I was nerd raging when I found out Henry Cavill wasn’t coming back as Superman. He was the perfect Superman.

  • I love the new/old theme tune for Batman!!!

  • DC can’t seem to get it right!

  • Shame….. Would've loved seeing more of Ben Afleck's Batman……. I'll just keep my mouth shut about Pattinson being the new Batman….

  • Robert Pattinson looks shit in this suit

  • 2350y. people still goes like wohooo new batman movie

  • Would Have Loved To Have Seen More Afflk As The BTM.

  • Affleck should have never taken the role if he wasn't going to commit to it. It hurts the DCEU as a whole. I think since he has one more appearance on his contract they should have him in a team-up movie and have him go into the Lazurus Pit and have it de-age him and Robert Pattinson comes out.

  • I saw online that some marvel fans aren't happy with the new cowl on batman's new suit because they say it looks like daredevils. I say wait till we get a proper look at it before bashing it. It wouldn't bother me too much either way.

  • Batfleck's fighting style was ideal. That's how batman should move and engage in combat. I think Pattinson could be okay as Bruce Wayne but i'm not sold yet on Batman, and i'm worried he will be too thin. I do like the teaser of the suit though for the most part.

  • Afleck was the BOMB in phantoms, Yo!

  • I'm really looking forward to The Batman. I want to see this movie. Looking at the trailer that costume doe. I would love to make THAT as a costume

  • Hopefully with the new leadership at DC and WB they will reach an agreement with Ben Affleck to come back and continue his Batman storyline within the DCEU and of course… better support and working conditions from th studio. Hopefully they bring back Snyder as well, stop being so reactionary dammit.

  • Everyone was really excited for the Ben Affleck Batman movie?😂 since when, last i checked he sucked at being Batman

  • I would LOVE to see a new green lantern movie.(both Hal Jordan and John Stewart) An Arsenal movie. A The Atom movie (Ryan Choi. A lantern movie with every color in the emotional spectrum red,(rage),orange(greed), yellow(fear), green(willpower), blue(hope), purple(compassion), violet(love), black(death), and white(life). An Alfred movie. An Amanda Waller movie. An Aqualad movie. A Batfamily movie(Batman, Robin(Damian Wayne), Batgirl(Barbara Gordon), Azrael, Redhood, Batwing, Batwoman, Catwoman, Clayface, Commissioner Jim Gordon, Huntress, John Constantine, Nightwing, Spoiler, and Orphan). A Teen Titans movie.(Damian Wayne, Beast boy, Raven, Aqualad, Djinn, Roundhouse, Red Arrow, Crush, and Kid Flash(Wallace R. West). A Titans movie(Donna Troy, The Flash(Wally West), Tempest, Steel, Nightwing, and Miss Martian). Justice league 2 but with more characters such as Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Green Arrow, and others. An Arrow movie with the Arrow family. The Legion of Doom. Justice League dark. DC villains. And A Black lightning family movie.
    If you agree to this. Like or reply. If you disagree then dislike this comment

  • Im so gutted that they'll never make what would have been the best Batman movie ever.

  • He looks like daredevil in the suit

  • Any movie where the main character fights off drones of bad guys level after level are Awesome! The Raid is one, District 13, The Warriors, John Wick movies, And my favorite, Dredd, to name a few.

  • Shit

  • Arkham Raid Redemption!? Holy effing Hell that sounds like an unreal Batman; especially with the hella physical style of Batfleck's fighting in Dawn of Justice

  • I’ve liked Ben as a actor and human being since I saw him Armageddon years ago. And I can respect giving him a little more empathy towards his stance. But they dropped the ball badly and I hope somewhere we can get a rejuvenated justice league movie

  • He did what was best for himself which is great for him and his family however us greedy Batman fans can only be sad that we won’t get to see him have another go at it. He’s a great director and actor I don’t think people give him enough credit for. As of the cinematic universe, they should honestly scrap their “DCEU” and start over with The Batman and going forward. Let The Batman be the iron man movie for DC and slowly introduce each character and then try again for a justice league movie.

  • I think Ben cant still be the batman in justice League universe

  • Ben should look after himself first, so that was a good move. After all RL > fantasy life. He was a good batman.

  • So WB drove Batfleck to drink. Typical

  • Is this movie even in the dceu

  • I love how everyone keeps saying that Suicide Squad was a complete failure, and yet it gave us a Harley Quinn movie, a sequel, the soundtrack was one of the best selling albums during its release, and it made close to a billion dollars. So in what Universe do we f**** live in now where that is a complete failure?!

  • Thank you Ben, for leaving the Batman role to someone else. I realy felt your role as the actor who played a superman in hollywoodland was the only comic book based role I find you believable in. Best Good luck in other genres and also I hope you get a handle on your stress and coping mechanisms.

  • God bless Ben Affleck you will all way be my batman you made a good choice

  • Gal Gadot is hot as fuck no cap

  • How many of these movies need to be made just go away for about 7 years

  • This Batman is gonna be bad!!

  • Wish they'd let Affleck make his film and promise him all and every ounce of support. Also wish we'd seen Snyder's trilogy running in tandem… the DKR versions we've had are simply superb and deserve development. Sigh… maybe when the Battinson trilogy is done. That said, although going back to Year 2+ is excellent, it feels like the DKR has been snatched away now we've had a taste…

  • Batfleck was legit. Wished we could have had a solo movie with him but still excited for the Pattenson/Reeves version.

  • Basically affkeck was going to do arkham asulym as a film

  • Ben Affleck's Batman V Deathstroke movie would have been a fucking masterpiece, a guy who can out-Batman the Batman, as Batman has to face the next phase of his life and the possibility of having to end his career due to his age? C'mon! That would have been ballsy as hell and brilliant as fuck!

  • Ben Affleck is a fucking cry baby!

  • Health =Wealth

  • Hey man, this way a really good video! Lots of insight , no sensationalism and packed with relevant info for interested fans. Good work

  • I'm glad Affleck put his health first. I am sad that happened, with that said I will miss Affleck as Batman he was the most believable Batman I've seen this far. I'm 44 yrs old and have been disappointed by all the previous Batman actors he was top notch but health comes 1st

  • Idk Pattinson's giant head looks weird in mask

  • Affleck did a good job being the older Batman. The WB ruined their own movies trying to keep up with Marvel. I liked DCEU movies, so I was hoping for Affleck to play Batman in a Batman: Beyond type movie. Now the new crap will just flop. Too many Batman, and Spider Man movies.

  • Studio interference ruins everything.

  • Rob paterson as batman? The dude is like 120 lbs hows that work? Lol

  • No he should have done the movie, died and get the ledger treatment. Because all we care is getting a movie that entertain us

  • Affleck's version was the best screen version of Batman. I'm gonna miss that. Not surprised it was hurting Affleck though, people got pretty stupid over BvS and Justice League. Glad he bailed, no movie audience is worth killing yourself for.

  • still love all the movies lol cant wait to see the new batman💚💚💚💚💚

  • new batman look like with down syndrome

  • Well it’s confirmed I need to stay alive for 8 years to see all this shit 😂

  • Affleck should have stayed Batman. He portrayed batman the greatest in my opinion and the work he went through to achieve his physique solidified that. Especially since I've never been a fan of his, I appreciate hard work in portraying iconic characters and stories when bringing source material to life. I understand there are several depictions of batman but to do certain feats, he's going to be somewhat closer to superman. Plus, these larger physiques are more iconic to me, personally. I think great writing and directing is what was needed at DC. Pattinson, in no way, does it for me.

  • He made the right decision, the problem here is obviously the studio – they need to clean house and develop a better strategy

  • Shoemaker trilogy?

  • I hope they just kind of retcon Batman V Superman and Justice League away. Wonder Woman and Aquaman don't conflict, right?

  • He almost drank himself to death because he had to film a movie? That poor rich, successful man.

    I'm getting closer and closer to suicide because I've gone nowhere in life (only 23, but still) and because I'm broke once again because my employers fucked me over and they're legally allowed to just not give me work and not tell me for thirteen weeks!

  • You have a great

  • If they want to separate themselves from the DCEU
    Then just stop all the movies for 5 years and just start fresh

  • Ben Affleck was just as bad as George Clooney.

  • Awesome stuff.

  • They should cast an African American transgender woman to play Batman.

  • I ship Robert Pattinson Batman and Gal Gadot Wonderwoman.

  • Sorry to hear the Ben had some issues with the Batman movies and I did like his version of Batman however family and health come before anything else!

  • As a DC fan, I'm of tired of them not sticking to scripts, directors, and/or actors. Why do they continue to make such bad decisions? Love to see more great movies like Joker where they start stories and then they connect characters in their storylines.

  • Dc is suppose to be darker
    I hope the new movie doesn’t have any avengers bulls got in it

  • Ben was fantastic. We miss his Batman, he was awesome

  • What's that music? It's like a mix of Elfmans, Zimmer and the animated series

  • They should of got Aflec some AA help so he could or continued to do Batman justice. Cuz now, for me, the most inspired biggest Batman fan ever, the Batman movies are ruined until a taller more athletic Batman is cast. Pattinson is cool and all but he is just not a Batman/Bruce Wayne to me. Aflec was perfect because he checked all the boxes. He was close to Batman's real height in the comics of 6'5"… he has a dark side to him in real life… for example, the drinking and such… just like Christian Bale did… and he had the muscle build to do it. So until they cast another 6'5" actor with real muscles then Batman movies will continue to be ruined. And don't get me wrong. I've liked Pattinson in his roles in other films. Nothing against him at all, he's just not a batman character to me. I mean on the real, i would be a much much much better Batman/Bruce Wayne to be cast then pattinson. I'm 6'5", athletic(played tight end at a D1 college), big muscles, a big loving heart with a courageous dark side against evil doers, and I can act… oh and I have a natural real deep voice. So can someone tell the next director and producer than I'm available. I could do the Batman character so much more justice than pattinson for a fact and even possibly do better than aflec and bale… even though those 2 guys did the best job as yet… either bring back aflec or cast me… I guarantee the movie would sell much more that way
