This is why we wait for confirmation, guys. Matt Reeves has officially signed on to produce and direct Ben Affleck’s Batman movie. LKast we heard was that Reeves exited negotiations, but that56’s just part of the business. Of course sites everywhere just claimed that the DCEU was in more trouble. Let’s put all that to bed and get hyped for a Matt Reeves Batman movie.
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.
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.
