A few weeks ago, we got the news that Ben Affleck dropped off as director from ‘The Batman’. Warner Bros. has been looking for a director since then. The director of Cloverfield, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and the upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes Matt Reeves has signed on to direct according to THR.
The report also states that the studio moved quickly to find a replacement and Reeve’s name shot to the top of the list. Sources tell them that multiple conversations occurred, with the studio and the director meeting in Friday.
Reeves has proven himself recently with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and we’ll see if he can keep it up this June, but the news is good. It’s rear to hear that Warner Bros. had a name in mind and that he is on board. I really hope that he brings a fresh take on the Batman franchise no finally gets the project off the ground.
I said this in a previous story, but I just hope that Warner Bros. didn’t just look at his work on the Apes franchise and automatically hire him, and they actually have a vision for him. Every upcoming DC movie has had trouble, except Aquaman. All news about this movie has been bad with director troubles and script rewrites, it’s good to hear some promising news after being scared by previous reports.
I really hope this movie turns out really great along with other DC films.
