Ben Affleck’s Batman movie may take place inside Arkham Asylum

Warner Bros.

A very interesting rumor about Ben Affleck’s upcoming Batman movie dropped last week, but no one noticed! I’m happy to share it here on Batman News, and it will probably get the attention it deserves around the web now.

According to reliable sources over at BOF, Ben Affleck may find himself locked up in Arkham Asylum in his solo Batman movie. This wouldn’t be a straight up adaptation of the Batman: Arkham Asylum video game or the graphic novel by Grant Morrison, though. Affleck has said that his Batman movie will borrow elements from previous Batman stories, but that he’ll be telling an original story.

This rumor lines up with the rumor we heard a couple of months ago that said that many of Batman’s famous villains will be making appearances in the movie. One natural way to make that happen is to have it take place in Arkham Asylum where they’re all locked up!
