Warner Brothers have confirmed that Cloverfield director Matt Reeves will indeed direct the upcoming solo Batman film, just days after Reeves was reported to have stepped down from the film.
Check out Reeves statement about the announcement:
“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.”
Filming is expected to begin this summer. You can see the director’s latest film when War of the Planet of the Apes hits theater on July 14th, 2017.
