A rumor started circling a while back that claimed Ben Affleck‘s The Batman would be set entirely behind the walls of the notorious Arkham Asylum, taking cues from settings of the popular video game franchise.
Umberto from The Wrap recently debunked the rumor when Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke was revealed to him as the villain of the film, before Joe Manganiello was officially confirmed for the role.
A tough-as-nails assassin that would likely be contracted by another villain (Black Mask?) to take out Batman for cash.
Now, Umberto is doubling-down as he’s further debunking the idea Arkham will be the main or only setting of the film.
What scoop can I give you on #BatmanDay? The standalone film DOES NOT take place entirely in Arkham with all the vaillains on the loose.

While he have a couple cast members confirmed for the film, we haven’t heard official dates for a production start or release.
