Solo Batman Film Adapts Red Hood Story?

Following in the wake of their “Wonder Woman” plot details the other week, JoBlo have published a new report today dealing with the standalone live-action Batman movie at Warner Bros. Pictures.

The film will see Ben Affleck once again starring as Bruce Wayne, and this time he might potentially direct the project. Said report claims it will use story elements from both the “A Death In the Family” and “Under The Hood” comic arcs:

“The basic plotline of Affleck’s solo Batfilm is that Jason Todd has returned from the grave as the Red Hood, working in the shadows to make people think he’s Batman, while making Batman look like a criminal.

At the same time he leaves clues about his identity for Bruce/Batman to ultimately solve, leading to a confrontation that will involve Batman, Red Hood, and yes, The Joker, who will feature as a primary villain alongside Red Hood.”

The site claims the film will also apparently feature Dick Grayson as Nightwing, while an unknown actor is being sought for the Red Hood role.
