The Batman director Matt Reeves is expected to turn in a rewrite of the standalone film’s script by the end of the month.

Plot details for The Batman are still under wraps, though the project is rumored to be centered on a younger Caped Crusader. Reeves himself has confirmed that the film will not be directly based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic.

The director turned in the initial draft of the script in September and now Heroic Hollywood editor-in-chief Umberto Gonzalez has revealed Reeves is set to deliver a rewrite of the script by the end of 2018.

The Batman is one of the many projects currently being developed by Warner Bros. and DC Films, including The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, Black Adam, Cyborg, Supergirl, New Gods, and Nightwing.

The DCEU continues this month with Aquaman which is set to hit theaters in the US on December 21, 2018, followed by Shazam! on April 5, 2019, Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), on February 7, 2020, and Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020. A standalone Joker film set outside of the DC Films universe starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime is also set to hit theaters October 4, 2019.
