Yesterday, Ben Affleck revealed the likely name for his solo Batman movie, however many fans have labelled it as “boring.”
Talking to Associated Press, during a press junket for The Accountant, Affleck suggested that the movie will simply be titled The Batman. He says he “might change it”, but that’s what he’s going with for now.
Well there’s plenty who will be hoping it does change, after many took to twitter to express their disapproval over the title:

Ben Affleck calling his solo superhero movie "The Batman" feels like when my dad calls it "The Marijuana"

Joining Affleck in the cast is Joe Manganiello, who plays the villainous Deathstroke. J.K. Simmons will also be appearing as Commissioner Gordon. Other than that though, not much else is known about the movie.
What are your thoughts on the title?
