Matt Reeve Batman

Warner Bros. has officially announced that Matt Reeves, known for his work on CloverfieldDawn of the Planet of the Apes, and Let Me In, will be Directing the upcoming iteration of Batman.

“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,” said Reeves.

The Batman stars Ben Affleck, who first donned the cape in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Affleck was originally slated to Direct the stand alone film but stepped down from the position earlier this year.

“We are thrilled to have Matt Reeves taking the helm of Batman, the crown jewel of our DC slate. Matt’s deep roots in genre films and his evolution into an emotional world-building director make him the perfect filmmaker to guide the Dark Knight through this next journey,” said Toby Emmerich, President and Chief Content Officer, Warner Bros. Pictures Group.

In addition to Directing the film, Matt Reeves will also serve as a Producer.
