Last week we heard reports that Matt Reeves had exited talked with Warner Bros. regarding directing the solo Batman film, after he was approached by the studio when Ben Affleck announced he would no longer be directing the film because he wanted to concentrate on his performance as Batman… That, and he was probably sick of being questioned every 5 seconds about it. 

Reeves’ previous films include ‘Cloverfield, ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’, and this year’s highly anticipated ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’, so I think it’s safe to say that ‘The Batman’ is in the best of hands. 

In a statement released, Reeves says :

“I have loved the Batman story since I was a child. He is such an iconic and compelling character, and one that resonates with me deeply. I am incredibly honored and excited to be working with Warner Bros. to bring an epic and emotional new take on the Caped Crusader to the big screen” 

What are your thoughts on this decision? Is Matt Reeves a good choice for The Batman? Who would you like to have directed the Caped Crusader’s solo outing?
