Warner Bros. Officially Announces That Matt Reeves Will Direct THE BATMAN In Place Of Ben Affleck

Despite reports that negotiations between Warner Bros. and Matt Reeves had broken down, the studio has now confirmed that the War for the Planet of The Apes director will indeed helm The Batman...

After initially being named as the front-runner to replace Ben Affleck in The Batman director's chair, we had heard that talks had fallen through and Matt Reeves would no longer be taking the reigns of the Dark Knight's next solo adventure - however, Warner Bros. has now officially announced that the deal is done, and Reeves will helm the movie after all.

Here's what Reeves had to say in a statement:


“I have loved the Batman story since I was a child. He is such an iconic and compelling character, and one that resonates with me deeply. I am incredibly honored and excited to be working with Warner Bros. to bring an epic and emotional new take on the Caped Crusader to the big screen

Reeves is also on board as producer, and although the release makes no mention of Affleck, he is (apparently) still involved and will reprise the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in the film.


This has been a bit of a roller-coaster, but it's great to finally have someone like Reeves at the helm of The Batman. What do you guys think? Sound off below.
