It still isn’t clear if or when we’ll see Matt Reeves ‘The Batman’ or what the chances are that Ben Affleck will be playing The Caped Crusader in the film, but what we now know is that a new version of the script is due in by the end of the year. The news came from Heroic Hollywood’s editor-in-chief Umberto Gonzalez who shared that Reeves is going to deliver a rewrite to the script whose first draft had been completed in September.
The exact plot of the standalone film is still unknown though early rumors had it focusing more on a younger take of The Dark Knight which would likely see Affleck recast. That being said, the director has confirmed that this is not going to be a retelling of Frank Miller’s Year One comic as many had initially believed.

To be completely honest, with Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill likely no longer attached for future DC films and so many projects having been pulled, it is hard to get excited for ‘The Batman’ as it may never even see the light of day. Other films which have been announced without much traction being shared include ‘The Flash,’ ‘Green Lantern Corps,’ ‘Black Adam,’ ‘Cyborg,’ ‘Supergirl,’ ‘New Gods’, and ‘Nightwing.’
Are you excited to hear that Matt Reeves revisions for ‘The Batman’ will be turned in by the end of 2018? Do you think that the director will even be able to make the film or will this be another project which DC and Warner Bros. cancels or delays indefinitely? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
