The production activities are set to start as early as the Spring of 2017, so that we means we could start seeing all those set photos and gossipy spoilers that go along with such a huge film as this.

Confirmation from Ben

Alright, quickly getting back to the Batman topic, we also have confirmation from the main man,himself: Ben Affleck, that it is set to start up filming this Spring. Apparently, he told the Variety news team this intel , and said they appear to be on the right track with everything, and that they're still currently finishing up the final touches on the script. He's very excited about it. One of the co-stars, Joe Manganiello also confirmed the shooting schedule in a different interview.

Jeremy Irons chimed in too

Then in our final round of reports on this subject, we have the Alfred star, Jeremy Irons, going on record with the IGN media crew, also confirming that they will start shooting this Spring. So, I think that's more than enough confirmation to expect to start seeing this thing finally get produced in a couple of months. Along with that reveal, he said he hasn't gotten a chance to look at the script yet, so we'll still have to wait to get any details about that.

Stay tuned.
