THE BATMAN: New Details Revealed About The Age And Type Of Caped Crusader Matt Reeves Is Looking For

Armie Hammer won't play Batman, but a new report from a reliable source has shed some light on the age range Matt Reeves is considering for his Dark Knight as well as the type of Bruce Wayne's we'll see...

Earlier this week, reports started swirling that Armie Hammer was in final talks to play the DC Extended Universe's new Caped Crusader in The Batman. Within a matter of hours, the trades confirmed that that was false and now The Hollywood Reporter has shed a little more light on the filmmaker's plans for the iconic superhero.

While Hammer is 32, Reeves is reportedly looking to cast an actor in his late 20s as Bruce Wayne. 

It's said that this new version of Batman "won't be a straight-up rookie, a la the Caped Crusader in Frank Miller's Batman Year One, but he won't be the expert, undefeatable crimefighter of a Batman at his peak." That's not really something we've seen explored in a movie before now, and Reeves has previously been quoted as saying that he intends to focus more on the character's detective roots, too.

With any luck, casting news is coming soon but the trade notes that neither Warner Bros. nor Reeves has actually met with anyone at this stage so it could be a while yet. 

You have to believe that a shortlist exists, though, and it will be interesting to find out whether Reeves goes for a big star or someone who could be classed as an unknown. We'll be sure to keep you guys updated with more as we have it. 

Who would be your perfect Batman?
