Is there a standalone comic book movie more highly anticipated than The Batman? It’s been five years since the last standalone Bat-flick with 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises and fans need their fix. Thankfully, it seems we won’t have to wait for much longer.

The question is, though how should the movie be done? With a new script being written, it’s unclear just what direction the project could go in. For instance, are they going to do a part-adaptation of a classic storyline, or go for something entirely unique and fresh?
