Rumour: The title for Ben Affleck's solo Batman film revealed

The Dark Knight goes it alone

Ben Affleck is rumoured to be getting his own solo Batman film with a working title already in place.
When the actor was first announced as the new Caped Crusader, it was reported that he had signed a deal to play the role in multiple films.
Now, it looks like that will include a standalone film for a 2019 release after he finishes up on Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice League and Justice League.
There's even a rumoured working title. Are you ready? Latino Review is reporting that the film will be called The Batman
Presumably because Tim Burton's hugely successful 1989 film, with Michael Keaton in the lead, has used the even more direct and straight-to-the-point-no-messing title Batman.
It's also a cool reference for fans - The Batman is one of Bats' nickname, a bit like The Dark Knight. 
Excitingly, there's also speculation there's a good chance Affleck could direct the solo film. 
He's already proved with Argo that he's up to the task of acting, directing and bringing home Oscars, though a physically demanding superhero film is a whole other challenge.
Casting Affleck was a huge gamble for Warner Bros. Let's hope it pays off.
