Matt Reeves Signs on For The Batman as Director and Producer

Shares

The Batman has gone through its share of controversy, from factual news to news sites jumping the gun on rumored news. Last Week both Variety and The Hollywood Reporter reported that discussions between Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. had broken down but that talks could resume. This news was of course exaggerated by many news sites as him dropping out and no longer being attached.

Now it has been released from both Variety and The Hollywood Reporter that Matt Reeves has officially signed on and a statement has been released along with the announcement. Both news articles do mention that there is more to come, so stay tuned.

MATT REEVES STATEMENT

. “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.”

TOBY EMMERICH (WB CCO AND PRESIDENT) STATEMENT

“We are thrilled to have Matt Reeves taking the helm of Batman, the crown jewel of our DC slate,” said Toby Emmerich, President and Chief Content Officer, Warner Bros. Pictures Group. “Matt’s deep roots in genre films and his evolution into an emotional world-building director make him the perfect filmmaker to guide the Dark Knight through this next journey.”

The Batman is written by Chris Terrio based on a story by Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
