‘The Batman’ Director Matt Reeves is revealing more from his plans for his take on The Dark Knight.
Matt Reeves stepped into replace star Ben Affleck as director on the project earlier this year, recently revealed on MTVs Happy Sad Confused Podcast that he scrapped the earlier script that Affleck, Chris Terrio and DC’s Geoff Johns had worked on.
When asked if he would be working with Affleck’s script, Reeves said, “No, it’s a new story. It’s just starting again. I’m excited about it. I think it’s going to be really cool.”
Reeves is planning a noir, detective driven take on the character. In the original script, Deadstroke was the villain, with Joe Manganiello cast. (Reeves did not say if he plans on using Deathstroke in his script.)
