Director Matt Reeves Has Already Dropped Out Of ‘The Batman’
Director Matt Reeves Has Already Dropped Out Of ‘The Batman’

 

Not even a week after director Matt Reeves was announced as the director of The Batman (after Ben Affleck dropped out), Matt Reeves remembered this was for a DC movie and dropped out.

A studio source confirms that negotiations have broken down. The possibility, however, exists that talks could resume when heads cool. The studio is intent on making the movie no matter what, as the Batman franchise has proven to be bigger than one person. Reeves is currently deep in postproduction on War for the Planet of the Apes, which is shaping up to be the biggest entry in the Fox franchise.

Also, lol.

Prior to Reeves receiving the offer, Ridley Scott and Don’t Breathe helmer Fede Alvarez were among the names being floated for the director’s chair.

So basically, DC/Warner Bros. got Reeves in the room by saying they wanted a director with a vision, then told him that vision is fine as long as the test focus group and the 12 studio executives who they planned to sit directly behind during the whole shoot were okay with it, or if people liked something in Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 then they’d have to come back and do reshoots to incorporate that. Then maybe add ninjas or werewolves. Or ninja werewolves? Wouldn’t it be cool if Batman fought ninja werewolves? That’s pretty dark. That’s pretty dark, right? What if we made them black?

Ben Affleck’s Solo Batman Movie Is Gonna Be Called ‘The Batman’



As you already know, Ben Affleck is writing and directing his own standalone Batman movie, and it needs to come as soon as possible so humanity can wash off the pile of shit that was Batman v Superman. I know what you’re gonna say, it was a HUGE HIT! You know what else is a huge hit? Big Macs and Donald Trump. So let’s not get that confused. On the bright side, Zack Snyder is nowhere near this one. And by “this one”, I mean:

“I think is going to be called ‘The Batman’ … at least that’s what we are going with now,” Affleck told the Associated Press in a recent interview. “I might change it, I think that’s about it right now, that’s all I got,” he said. Affleck is set to direct and star in the film, slated for 2016, in addition to co-writing the screenplay. “We’re working on the script, the script is going well, I’m really excited about it and I assure you that when there’s anything that develops you’ll hear about it,” Affleck said.

Even if this movie ends up not living up to the hype, it’s be exponentially better than Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, and Justice League. Why? Because I’m not sure about actor Ben Affleck, but director Ben Affleck has earned the right not to be second guessed by a studio suit. And also because Zack Snyder isn’t involved. I want to make sure we’re all clear on that.
