Last week, everyone lost their collective minds and were digging a hole for the DCEU grave when news hit that talks with director Matt Reeves were halted. We tried to stay calm because we heard from many different sources that this was because his agent was playing hardball for more money and that talks could resume.
Well, guess what? Not only did talks resume, but Matt Reeves has officially signed on to direct the tentatively titled, The Batman.
Matt Reeves had this to say in a statement:
“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.”
Reeves will also produce the film with Ben Affleck. No word on a start date or release date, but we’ll keep you posted!
