Try Not To Be Shocked To The Core Of Your Being When You Hear The Title Of Ben Affleck's Batman Movie

It's called The Batman. Surprise! Affleck revealed the distinctly unsurprising name, significantly less wordy than the previously-used "DC's standalone Batman movie", during promotional coverage for his upcoming film The Accountant (Ben Affleck really likes his "The's", doesn't he?):

The movie I think is going to be called The Batman. At least that's what we're going with right now. I might change it… That's about all I got right now. We're working on the script, the script is going well, I'm really excited about it.

It might change according to Affleck, but I hope it doesn't. Short, sharp, to the point, just like a well-crafted cowl-ear. Plus, people don't call Batman "The Batman!" nearly as often enough as they should. It has a nice ring to it, while not being as overtly poetic as "The Dark Knight".
