It’s being rumoured that a Batman: Arkham Knight series is currently being discussed for Ben Affleck.
This rumour comes to us from our good friends over at Geekosity, but I must say that I have my slight reservations.
I really want to see Ben Affleck back as Batman again after the upcoming Flash movie.
However, unless Warner Bros. Pictures does a massive u-turn and opts to restore the SnyderVerse, I highly doubt it will happen.
I have been asking around about that, and what I’ve been hearing is that Affleck is done playing Batman after The Flash.
He wants to move on, and I can understand that.
However, Mikey Sutton over at Geekosity is now saying that there are talks to adapt the Batman: Arkham Knight video game into a series for Ben Affleck to star in.
Could a Batman: Arkham Knight series be in the works for Ben Affleck?
I’m only being honest here, I think this is a bit of a stretch.
The Arkham video games are great, and they would make for excellent TV.
However, they would also be pretty expensive to make, especially the Arkham Knight video game.
They could adapt Arkham Asylum and have the show series be set in Arkham.
That would lower the costs by having it all take place in one setting.
I also think it would help make the series more focused and I would love a scarier Batman live-action project.
However, having Ben Affleck return as Batman would only elevate the cost.
Now, Sutton did say that this was an idea inside of AT&T, which it might have been.
However, it seems as though they are about to wave goodbye to WarnerMedia and that includes HBO Max.
So, this idea might have ended up being DOA, which is a shame.
