After Ben Affleck decided that he will not direct The Batman, WB was left to search for a new director.
And now they have officially announced that Matt Reeves (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) will direct the movie. It has been rumoured for a long time, that Reeves would take up the director’s seat, and now it has finally been confirmed.
Reeves’ official statement said:“I have loved the Batman story since I was a child. 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.”
Ben Affleck later welcomed Reeves with a post on Instagram saying “Welcome to the Batcave, Matt Reeves”
