It's very simplistic to say the least. He also dished a major plot spoiler that describes who the main villain will be. The actual title for the movie is: "The Batman." That's right. I told you it was extremely simplistic. You won't have to do any guessing as to what this movie is about from that title. He made absolute sure of that. Also, I should mention that Ben said that's what the title is for right now, and that there is a possibility that it could change in the future, so we'll have to keep an eye out for that possible change.

Ben revealed who the main villain will be

As for the main villain spoilers, Ben chatted with the Collider news team to reveal this very interesting piece of intel. It turns out that he hand-picked Deathstroke to be his main villain in the flick, and also told them why. Apparently, he thinks that Deathstroke is a very formidable opponent for Batman, saying that they match up very well. He's also a very huge fan of the way they presented Deathstroke in the New 52 comic books.

Joe Manganiello has tested for the Deathstroke role

Ben has also tested a very well-known actor to play Deathstroke. He did some test footage with former "True Blood" werewolf star: Joe Manganiello. That guy's a muscle beast, and would definitely make for an interesting Deathstroke. It's unknown if Ben is still going with Manganiello for the role, but I'm sure there's a very good possibility that he will.

Possible release date is pretty far out

One very important piece of information that we're still waiting for about this movie, is its actual release date.

Currently, it doesn't have one, but there's speculation of a possible 2018 or 2019 release. So, with that in mind, you guys can feel free to assume that there's a pretty long wait ahead of you before we get to see the end product of this elaborate production. Stay tuned.
