The Batman director Matt Reeves share details at TCA panel on his upcoming World of DC movie based on Bruce Wayne’s standalone film. Deadline reports that the script of the film is almost done and will be ready to starts filming.
“We are working on getting our draft in the next couple of weeks, and things are progressing,” said the Batman director Matt Reeves, “We have conceptual stuff going and coming into being, and my head is totally in the script. In fact, I’m going to be leaving right now (from the Beverly Hilton) to work on the script”.
We have already got the origin story of Batman from Christopher Nolan’s trilogy starred Christen Bale as Bruce Wayne. But director claims that he won’t repeat the same history and the Batman won’t related to their universe.
I’m just excited to be focused on a tale that’s defying for him (Batman) and is very personal to him, but at the same time, we’re really– apparently we’re not doing any origin tales or anything like that –but definitely Batman, emotional, and him being the world’s greatest detective.
What was lacks in Batman V Super: Dawn of Justice and Justice League that Bruce Wayne’s comic counterpart where he is all-time most valuable player. But Reeves promised that he would bring out his all detective skills which make him fans’ favorite and smart superhero.
Ben Affleck still in discussions to play the Cap Crusader but the director said it would be too early to announce the cast details. In 2014, when Warner Bros announced Batman’s standalone movie with a tentative release date of 2019, Ben Affleck was supposed to direct and write for the film.
However, in January 2017, Matt Reeves confirmed to be direct as well as produce the movie. So, the draft of the Batman will be ready until next month. So, after selecting relevant casts, production will begin next year.
Though, World of DC’s future depends on Warner Bros. upcoming superhero movies Aquaman, Shazam!, Wonder Woman 1984; the Batman, Deathstroke would also seem to be setting their cinematic universe in line as that of Marvel Cinematic Universe.
