The next "reboot" of the Batman movie franchise could be released in 2017, it has been reported.
Warner Bros is claimed by website Batman On Film to have decided to leave a gap of at least five years before making a new movie focused on the caped crusader.
But a new Batman is expected to make an appearance before that in the Justice League movie - which is projected for 2015 and has seen both Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Armie Hammer tipped to star.
And it is thought that this could prove the launch pad for a new series of solo outings for Batman with the same actor starring.
Henry Cavill is expected to appear as Superman in the Justice League movie, if the soon-to-be-released Man Of Steel is a success.
