The Batman Director Clarifies Extended Universe Confusion

Matt Reeves has moved to clear up confusion over the status of his Batman solo film.

With recent reports of not one, but two, Joker movies in the planning stages at Warner Bros., speculation grew that The Batman would not be set in the current DCEU landscape and would instead be standalone, stemming from comments from Reeves earlier in the year.

Reeves previously said;

“Well I have a vision for a way to do something with that character [Batman] that feels like it resonates with me personally, and a perspective that can grow out into other things. When [Warner Bros] approached me, what they said was, ‘Look, it’s a standalone, it’s not part of the extended universe’.”

However, it seems Reeves’ words have been misconstrued, as he has now taken to Twitter to clear things up.

While it is pretty easy to see where people got confused, it’s good to have clarification on things.

Despite speculation on his future, Ben Affleck will reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the movie.
