'The Batman' dated for June 2021, Ben Affleck out as caped crusader

Warner Bros. has announced that solo Batman film titled The Batman from writer and director Matt Reeves, will arrive in theaters on June 25, 2021.

The film will not feature Ben Affleck, as Batman as the actor is stepping down from the role. Affleck previously starred as the caped crusader in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, briefly in 2016's Suicide Squad and in 2017's Justice League.

"Excited for #TheBatman in Summer 2021 and to see @MattReevesLA vision come to life," Affleck said on Twitter Wednesday.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Affleck's tweet is the star's way of saying goodbye to the role.

The Batman will instead feature a younger Bruce Wayne with casting underway. Reeves, best known for helming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes, previously said that The Batman will be noir driven.

"I think there's a chance to do an almost noir-driven, detective version of Batman that is point-of-view-driven in a very, very powerful way that hopefully is going to connect you to what's going on inside of his head and inside of his heart," he said in June 2017.

Reeves signed on to helm the Batman project after Affleck stepped down from the directors chair in January 2017. Affleck later said in July 2017 at the San Diego Comic Con that he would be staying on to portray the Dark Knight.

Warner Bros. also announced on Tuesday that a new Suicide Squad film titled The Suicide Squad, will be arriving on Aug. 6, 2021. James Gunn, the filmmaker behind Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy films, will be writing and directing.

'Star Trek': Patrick Stewart is 'happy' with Jean-Luc Picard series

Star Trek actor Patrick Stewart is reportedly very "happy" with the upcoming Jean-Luc Picard series.

Alex Kurtzman, the co-creator of Star Trek: Discovery who will executive produce the new CBS All Access show, shared details about the project Wednesday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

Stewart first played Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation, which ran from 1987 to 1994, and reprised the role in several movies. Kurtzman said the 78-year-old actor trusts him to bring new life to the beloved character.

"Patrick didn't want to put handcuffs on us in any way by saying, 'I don't want to do this and I don't want to do that,'" the producer said, according to Entertainment Tonight. "He said, 'I want you to have the freedom to explore this character from a new perspective."

"We've started to internalize his thinking about Picard. Because that conversation is literally daily, either on e-mail or in the room in person, we feel confident that we're making choices that he would be happy with and is happy with because he's ultimately a producer on the show, too, and he gets as much of a say," he explained.

Kurtzman said Stewart made it clear to producers he did not want to repeat what he had already done in the Star Trek universe, according to The Wrap. The untitled new series will take place more than 20 years after fans last saw Picard.

"It's been 20-plus years, so he couldn't possibly be that same person anymore," the producer said of the character.

"The question becomes: What has happened to him in that period of time?" he shared. "How do you hold on to being the person that everybody loved, when the circumstances around you may have changed so radically? Those are the big questions that we're asking."

Stewart shared a behind-the-scenes photo in September after beginning work on the series. He previously said it was "an unexpected but delightful surprise" to have the opportunity to revisit Picard in a new show.
