BREAKING NEWS: Matt Reeves Will Direct BATMAN
After a back and forth with the WB, we can now confirm that Matt Reeves will direct Batman.
After weeks of speculation, including other directors’ names being thrown around, the Batman can get back to focusing on crime fighting and making the studio tons of money.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves is the man who will take the keys to the Bat-mobile and lead Batman and his roster of villains into the DCEU.
Here’s a statement from Matt Reeves himself talking about the hiring:
“I have loved the Batman story since I was a child. He is such an iconic and compelling character, and one that resonates with me deeply. I am incredibly honored and excited to be working with Warner Bros. to bring an epic and emotional new take on the Caped Crusader to the big screen”
Toby Emmerich, President and Chief Content Officer, Warner Bros. Pictures Group added:
“We are thrilled to have Matt Reeves taking the helm of Batman, the crown jewel of our DC slate. Matt’s deep roots in genre films and his evolution into an emotional world-building director make him the perfect filmmaker to guide the Dark Knight through this next journey.”
Even though the news is that Matt Reeves will direct Batman, if Warner Bros. is interested in keeping him around for a bit longer, that would be the best plan. Let Reeves run Gotham, but with the checks and balances of the DCEU.
Of course it all comes down to Reeves’ interest in moving forward with Warner Bros. on the DCEU, Reeves may want control over casting but i’m sure the WB will work with him on that.It’s in their best interest.
Ben Affleck and DC’s chief creative officer Geoff Johns have teamed up to write the Untitled Batman Reboot, which the actor will also star in as Batman and direct. Warner Bros. and DC apparently have much bigger plans for Ben Affleck’s Batman. There are claims that studio is now developing a new Batman trilogy of stand alone Dark Knight movies, in which Affleck would direct and star in.
