THE BATMAN Director Matt Reeves Says He's "Still In Contact" With Ben Affleck; Confirms DCEU Connection

We have some more quotes from Matt Reeves' appearance at the TCA summer press tour here, & The Batman director has seemingly confirmed that Ben Affleck is still involved with the project in some capacity.

It looks like it's going to be a while longer before we get some kind of official announcement regarding Ben Affleck's status as Batman in Warner Bros.' DC Films Universe - however, director Matt Reeves does seem to have tossed fans a thin lifeline in the meantime.

Following his earlier comments during the TCA summer press tour, Reeves has revealed that he is still "in contact" with Affleck in regards to the film, although he wouldn't elaborate any further.

Keep in mind that Affleck did work on an earlier draft of the script and was in line to direct the film himself at one point, so Reeves still being in touch with him is not out of the ordinary, and may not have anything to do with his reprisal of the Bruce Wayne role.

One thing the director would confirm, though, is that The Batman will - however tenuously - have some kind of connection to the main "Worlds of DC."


“There are ways in which all of this connects to DC, to the DC universe as well,” said Reeves. “We’re one piece of many pieces, so I don’t want to comment on that except to say that I’m focused very specifically on this aspect of the DC world.”

Still not much to go on, but the fact that Reeves is beginning to open up at least a little more about the project has to be a good sign.

What do you guys think? Has Affleck hung up the cape 'n cowl, or are we all in for a big surprise?
