Los Angeles Daily News recently spoke with The Batman filmmaker Matt Reeves. Speaking on the film, Reeves stated: “It’s a strange thing to be involved in the two franchises which were the two that I was connected to most as a child. I just was obsessed with Batman when I was a kid. What I find so interesting about him as a character is that, as far a superhero goes, he’s not superhuman, he is a person. And he is a tortured soul who is grappling with his past and trying to find a way to be in a world that has a lot that’s wrong with it and trying to find a way to reconcile all of that.”
At this time, The Batman does not have an official release date. Ben Affleck is expected to reprise his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne. Joseph Manganiello is reportedly attached to play Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke, as the film’s villain.
