Is 'The Batman' in The DCEU? Matt Reeves Clarifies His Comments

Then came the rumors that he no longer wanted to be Batman. Matt Reeves came on board and made a decision to throw out the original script in favor of his own. The film has yet to receive a proper green light from the studio, and it is believed Reeves is doing a massive rewrite that could radically alter Ben Affleck's original vision for the story. But the Joker and Harley Quinn movie is also moving fast as Warners has to contend with actors' holding agreements, say sources. It probably didn't help that Casey Affleck made comments recently about his brother's future as Batman, or lack there of to be more precise.

Though the clarification has been given, the insider's referring Reeves' The Batman to explain raises some eyebrows. "It's not part of the extended universe", DC apparently said. In describing his passion to return to the film noir detective style of the older Batman comic books, Reeves has revealed that The Batman will take place some time in the past. This strategy is not surprising; however, it seems like the DCEU has adapted a new and unexpected idea: they are potentially making The Batman separate from the DCEU. However, Reeves stated that he meant that the film will not feature characters or plot elements from the DCEU's other properties, not that it would take place in its own continuity. "Just to be clear: Of COURSE Batman will be part of the D.C. Universe", he said. Ben Affleck's Batman is part of the Justice League DC Extended Universe, and will in fact next be appearing in the Justice League movie.

It goes with what I originally posited as the original comment just being a case of misleading wording. It'll be canon to the DCEU but it won't make a big deal out of being apart of a shared universe. He has spearheaded the critically acclaimed Planet of the Apes reboot trilogy that has gone on to reasonable box office success.

And, in a move showing how popular the character is, a Joker solo movie is being developed as a potential directing vehicle for The Hangover filmmaker Todd Phillips. Films like Guardians of the Galaxy remained fairly unconnected to the rest of the MCU, allowing them to flourish creatively and not be weighed down by clunky world-building or foreshadowing. That it wouldn't be filled with cameos servicing other stories - that it would be a BATMAN story. The point of a cinematic universe is to tie the narrative together, so that each movie progresses the wider story.

Ever since it was first announced by Warner Bros. that Ben Affleck had been cast to play Batman in Zack Snyder's follow-up to his 2013 film Man of Steel, the film fan community has been very vocal online about their thoughts on the actor playing the role. As with most stories concerning the blockbuster superhero franchise, it's best to take this story with a grain of salt until confirmation from Warner Bros. or DC comes.

Will This Be Related to the Joker Origin Movie? But he's not going to do that movie, I don't think. Now that Matt Reeves is taking over as director, many changes have occurred, leaving fans wondering what they can expect from The Batman. Without Jared Leto's embarrassing performance as the Joker looming over Reeves' Batman movie, this is actually a somewhat pleasant option. Or it is done purposely and there, it is a stroke of genius that we are not worthy of understanding...
