Matt Reeves Explains His Personal Approach to The Batman


The Batman director Matt Reeves recently spoke to during his press event for his latest film War for the Planet of the Apes, in which he goes on to compare Batman to Caesar, which is the lead character in the recent series of Planet of the Apes.

In the interview Reeve goes on to confirm that he hasn’t begun on Batman, as he just finished working on War for the Planet of the Apes, which is set to release on July 14, 2017. Hopefully soon afterwards, we’ll hear more on the pre-production for The Batman, which doesn’t officially have a production beginning date nor a title, a release date or a fully established cast.

“Look, I’m just starting Batman because literally, [War for the Planet of the Apes], as I just said, we finished about a week ago and now we’re publicizing it,” Reeves said. “So, we haven’t even begun on Batman. For me, what’s always important is to try and find a personal way in. In that way, I do feel like I relate to actors. It’s about understanding emotionally, the way something is. I see this parallel between Caesar and Batman, really, which is this idea of these characters who are grappling with their own struggle and trying to do the right thing in an imperfect world and, so, I do really relate it to that kind of idea.”

Thus far what is known, is a script been worked on and Ben Affleck will reprise his role as Batman, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon after Justice League and Joe Manganiello will appearing as Deathstroke in the film.
