Matt Reeves is quickly becoming one of the most popular directors in Hollywood, especially after the success of his second Planet Of The Apes film, but his next project will likely be his biggest yet. Reeves will direct The Batman for Warner Bros. Pictures, and while appearing on The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith, Reeves spoke about the current status of the film and the script.
“I am outlining. I have the story worked out, and I am outlining.”
At this moment in time, it is unclear if Ben Affleck will return to wear the cowl in Reeves’ solo Batman movie. The actor has already appeared as Batman three times, but he has never confirmed (or denied) that he’ll appear in The Batman. While we don’t know what’s going on with The Batman, it’s comforting to know that Reeves has the story worked out and is progressing comfortably.
The Batman doesn’t have an official release date.
