Ben Affleck's days as Batman are over, Deadline reports. According to Warner Bros. upcoming slate of DC movies, The Batman is due to arrive on June 25, 2021, but Affleck, who played Bruce Wayne in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Justice League, will not be in the title role.

This iteration of the caped crusader will be written and directed by Matt Reeves. Affleck was originally pegged to direct, shooting a script he'd written with DC's Geoff Johns, before Reeves took over in 2017.

Talking about The Batman to The Hollywood Reporter, Reeves said, "It's very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale. It's told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it's going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional."

In other DC news, the Warner Bros. slate reveals that Suicide Squad follow-up The Suicide Squad will arrive on August 6, 2021. James Gunn, who was fired as director of Marvel's third Guardians of the Galaxy movie following a Twitter controversy, has penned the script and is in talks to direct.

Finally, DC Super Pets will arrive May 21, 2021. It'll draw from a ’60s comic called Legion of Super-Pets and revolve around superheroes' animal sidekicks, such as Batman's dog Ace the Bat-Hound and Superman's pet Krypto (aka Superdog).
