Matt Reeves directing DC's Batman

Recommended Posts

I figured this was worth its own thread as news is filtering out now that the Matt Reeves Batman film is stand alone and is not connected to the DCEU at all. 

 

A couple of days before Comic-Con last month, The Batman director Matt Reeves was on “The Business” podcast hosted by The Hollywood Reporter’s Kim Masters. Reeves spoke about his position on making the movie, and had an interesting comment about how it was pitched to him by Warner Bros.“When they approached me, what they said was: ‘look, it’s a standalone, this isn’t part of the extended universe,” Reeves said. He also confirmed that he has an idea for a trilogy in his head. Reeves said he’s “totally fine” not making a Batman movie if Warner Bros. doesn’t want to make the movie that he wants to make. So far, though, he said he and WB have been on the same page. You can listen to The Batman talk around the 23:39 mark below.Reeves comments about The Batman not being part of an extended universe are interesting. Yesterday, we learned that Warner Bros. will be launching a new brand of DC Comics movies that will be separate from their current DC Extended Universe. Right now they’re working on a Joker movie that won’t star Jared Leto.One last thing that I think is at least worth mentioning is this: The Hollywood Reporter’s Kim Masters interviewed Matt Reeves for this podcast on July 17th. On July 21st she published the article about Ben Affleck’s Batman future coming to end soon. Make of that what you will, but it’s certainly interesting timing.

Supposedly that is not official, and he is on the short list of two.

Pattinson's excellent. One of the most interesting actors in Hollywood today.

 

I still kind of want them to cast half the rest of the Twilight people as well, though, because I'm weird. It'll be fun! Stewart as Barbara Gordon, Billy Burke as the Commissioner, Michael Sheen as Joker, the whole lot!

When I think of Pattinson I always envision him physically like Christian Bale in The Mechanic.  He's just too damn skinny and lanky.  He is not an imposing physical force at all.  I don't have a problem with him as an actor.  He's done a fine job in many of the roles I've seen.  But he isn't The Batman.  Maybe he can add 50 pounds of muscle before filming starts, but I have serious reservations about that.

Keep your body-shaming to yourself Mr. Perfect!

I remember when people said Chris Evans was too skinny and lanky to be Captain America.

Yes he was super skinny and lanky pre Cap era. Sure.

Whatever, man.  Too bad there isn't a whole sub-industry in Hollywood to bulk actors up for roles...  :(
