The Batman might have found its new director after Ben Affleck stepped down from the role. Matt Reeves is reportedly set to take over the DC flick.
According to Variety, Reeves has committed to directing the Batman film, even though the deal isn’t finalized yet. He was on the shortlist of directors on hand to replace Batfleck, and he’s a promising choice. This is the guy who directed Cloverfield and War for the Planet of the Apes. His directorial style isn’t typical of DC’s superhero films, but in this case that could be for the best. God knows we don’t need David Ayer or Zack Snyder directing another DC film.
