Matt Reeves Confirms The Batman Is Set In Today’s World


The Batman director Matt Reeves in a recent interview with Nerdist, went on to talk on his love for The Dark Knight, which helped him shape his own vision of Batman for the upcoming film starring Robert Pattinson as the titled character.

Reeves goes on to talk of what his version of Batman would be like, that he didn’t want to have him be fully formed and where there’s something to do in context with who a guy would be in this world today, thus confirming The Batman will be taking place modern time, debunking the speculation by some fans that the movie would take place in the 90’s, thus making the movie a prequel to Ben Affleck’s Batman.

“I just felt like well, what I’d love to do is to get a version of this Batman character where he’s not yet fully formed. Where there’s something to do in this context with who that guy would be in this world today, and to ground him in all of these broken ways. Because at the end of the day, this guy is doing all of this to deal with trauma in his past.”

The Batman is slated to be released in theaters on June 25, 2021.
