No doubt Marvel’s run at the box office is bigger than DC’s in the current scenario. But the success of Wonder Woman and Aquaman has surely put DC back in the race with Marvel.
A new rumour suggests that Warner Bros Studios is looking for its next Batman. Earlier, Ben Affleck played the role of Batman in Justice League 2017.
Ben Affleck will be replaced by a new cast in the upcoming Batman 2021 which will be directed by Matt Reeves. Daniel Richtman has shared this information on his twitter account; he has been a good source of news like these in the past.
The Batman casting is upon us, maybe even this week.

A lot of rumours have been flying from the last couple of months regarding the role of Batman. Few actors who have been rumoured to play the role include Armie Hammer and Twilight Star ‘Robert Pattinson’.
DC may be lagging a bit behind than Marvel, but on the small screen, series like The Flash, Gotham, Supergirl and Doom Patrol are doing well.
Another Batman prequel has been announced on Epix, and we will also get to see the origin story of Joker in the upcoming movie. The early launch of the DC Universe streaming platform has also given a boost to DC Franchise.
