The Batman is one of Warner Bros. DC solo movie project that fans have been eagerly waiting for since Ben Affleck took on the role of the caped crusader. But the project has faced multiple hurdles since then and it currently remains to be seen if Affleck would reprise the role. Nonetheless, fans can still hold hope as the project is in active development as Matt Reeves talks about his plans for the movie.
Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, The War for the Planet of the Apes director seems to be focused entirely on The Batman movie and isn’t looking at any other, even another Apes project. The director said that he is currently “so deeply embedded in getting Batman on its feet.”
Reeves’s version will be of a “Noir Batman” as he has been stating since he’s been on board the project. The director had this to say when asked about his take for the character.
“It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale. It’s told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It’s more Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, and that’s not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been. I’d love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it’s going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation.”
The solo movie, which was recently reportedly revealed to be an untitled project is still be called as The Batman, or at least that’s what the director is calling it.
“Right now it’s called The Batman. What it will be called ultimately, I don’t know.”
The director still remains mum over Affleck’s return. but confirms that there will be a rogue gallery which means the movie would feature multiple villains such as Penguin, The Joker etc.
