Who will be inside the suit remains unknown but The Batman has a release date.

Warner Bros. on Wednesday announced that Matt Reeves’ stand-alone Batman film will hit theaters in June 2021. Ben Affleck was previously set to star in the film following his performances in Justice League and Batman v. Superman, but a new Caped Crusader is to be cast.

Affleck, who was at one point also to direct The Batman, tweeted that he’s excited to see Reeves’ vision of the film “come to life.”

Warner Bros. also dated the next Suicide Squad film, to be written by James Gunn, for 2021. The studio set an adaption of Stephen King’s The Shining sequel, Doctor Sleep, for November this year, and Robert Zemeckis’ The Witches for October 2020.
