In March there was a rumor that said The Batman script would be starting over from scratch, and now we have confirmation from director Matt Reeves.
Reeves was a guest on MTVís Happy Sad Confused podcast and host Josh Horowitz asked if he was going to be working off of Ben Affleck and Geoff Johnís original script. ďNo,Ē Reeves replied. ďItís a new story. Itís just starting again. Iím excited about it. I think itís going to be really cool.Ē
This might not be good news for Joe Manganiello, who was supposed to play the villain Deathstroke. Reeves has described his take on The Batman as a noir driven, detective version.
Reeves also talked about his meeting with Warner Bros. about The Batman. He explained to them that he needed a break after working on War for the Planet of the Apes for three years (itís out this weekend), so donít expect The Batman production to begin this year.
