With War for the Planet of the Apes now ready for wide release, Matt Reeves is getting ready to star work on the currently untitled Batman movie. While speaking on the MTV Happy Sad Confused Podcast, Matt Reeves revealed that in regard tot he script, he would be starting from scratch.Ben Affleck was originally slated to write, direct, and star in the solo Batman movie but eventually decided to keep his involvement to a minimum of starring in it, along with a draft of the script written by him and Geoff Johns, with Chris Terrio doing a rewrite of the script. Now thanks to this new information from Matt Reeves, it is apparent that the script will now start from scratch.
While what he had to say on the subject matter on the podcast was very little, the implications for it were very interesting: “It’s a new story; it’s just starting again. I’m excited about it. I think it’s going to be really cool.” With Matt Reeves starting on a new story for the movie while directing it shows that the Director is taking a good amount of time on the project, and the level of dedication shows promise in this solo DCEU film, akin to the development of Wonder Woman. Be sure to stay tune to the SuperBroMovies Twitter for all the latest updates on the upcoming Batman film. – Ernesto Valenzuela
