These are great, creative stories that would undoubtedly attract talented artists and directors to them, and I'd absolutely love to see them on screen. Kevin Tsujihara and Sue Kroll and Toby Emmerich said to me, 'We want you to be our Batman.' I would be a ape on the ground for Matt Reeves, never mind being Batman!
So I was saying at the beginning, Batman sells. However, while the idea of the solo movie not being a part of the DCEU has now been dealt with, the fate of Ben Affleck as Batman still remains murky. The details of the story also revealed that the film would be set in a different time period and would feature another actor donning the cape and cowl rather than Ben Affleck however, that part of the story has since been retracted. Reeves joked on Twitter before explaining, "Just to be clear: Of COURSE Batman will be part of the D.C. Universe". As opposed to Batman, whose life and goal we know down to the very details, we don't know anything about the Joker's motivations, history, plans for the future. In other words, The Batman will be centering on its title.
Matt Reeves was on The Business podcast with The Hollywood Reporter's Kim Masters when he let slip that, when he was hired to direct "The Batman", it was for a movie that would have no link to the previous Brawny Bruce episode. Could there be even more confusion on the way?
For a while there, it looked like Warner Bros. had finally got their sprawling and beleaguered #DCEU under control.
Now, it seems that the one thing that we thought was taken for granted that The Batman would fall under Warner Bros.' growing DC Cinematic Universe, may not be true. Just this week it was reported that a Joker origin film with no connection to the shared superhero world is in development.
This comes on the heels of yesterday's announcement that the Jokerwould be receiving a standalone origin story from Todd Phillips and Martin Scorsese, which, similarly, will not be attached to DC's extended film universe. It wasn't long after Affleck's announcement that rumors began circling questioning his continued involvement in the project.
