Matt Reeves To Write New Script For The Batman

The Batman went through some major script overhauls after Ben Affleck stepped down as director. Even after Matt Reeves was brought in to direct, the actor was considering walking away from the role after he was through with his contract.

While Affleck and Geoff Johns have been putting the script together for the past few years, it appears that Reeves wants to start anew. Check out what he had to say below.

Batman v Superman: Ultimate Edition

Cloverfield and Let Me In director Matt Reeves recently talked about the latest Batman standalone movie, currently known as The Batman. Reeves came on board to direct after Ben Affleck, who also stars, opted out of his directorial duties.

Reeves, who also helmed this month’s War for the Planet of the Apes and its predecessor Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, says he wants to tell an emotional Batman story. He also compared the legendary comic book character to Caesar in the Apes movies (played by Andy Serkis), and talked about what he liked about Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises director Christopher Nolan’s work.

Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne in Justice League

Batman goes by many names, but none as intellectually imposing as The World’s Greatest Detective. Sure he may have gizmos and gadgets at his disposal, and a lot of it helps him discover clues about the criminal underworld. But we really haven’t seen a film where those same detective skills are at the forefront of the character.

However, it appears that director Matt Reeves wants to bring a noir style to the world of The Batman. Pull down those Venetian blinds, and read more about what Reeves has planned for the Caped Crusader.

Batman v Superman Ben Affleck Bat Signal

The Batman has been in a production stall ever since the title was announced. Despite having then-director Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns writing the script with Chris Terrio doing the rewrites, and Affleck bowing out as director only to have Matt Reeves take his place, the film has yet to shoot a single scene. While the box office speaks for itself, critics have not been kind to the DCEU films, and things can only get worse with more behind-the-scenes troubles affecting the overall morale.

Now, it is being confirmed that Reeves’ current obligation to War for the Planet of the Apes is forcing the production of The Batman to be pushed back. Also, the script is being rewritten from scratch. More on the story below.

Ben Affleck as Batman

Before we get into this, let’s just start by saying that this is just a rumor.

There is no confirmation yet. But there is a rumor, and I emphasize the word rumor, that Ben Affleck doesn’t want to be Batman anymore. The actor has played the Dark Knight twice already, with his third being in the upcoming Justice League. He was poised to direct the hero’s standalone feature The Batman with a script he had written with Geoff Johns. However, he suddenly dropped out, forcing Warner Bros. to enter talks with Matt Reeves to take his place. More on the story below.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

There’s going to be a day where the sun will always shine on the DCEU. But today is not that day. The Batman is the latest film to be plagued by production problems. It was hit early on with a rumor from Bret Easton Ellis – which he backtracked later on – that WB did not like the script. Then Ben Affleck dropped out as director, after spending weeks seesawing his commitment. But now it has circled back to script issues. Affleck and Geoff Johns had worked on a script before it was handed off to Chris Terrio (Argo). Last week’s news that the studio would like to start the film with a fresh script was worrisome.

Now, Justin Kroll of Variety is offering a different perspective. According to him, WB thinks the script is fine. More on the story below.
