Matt Reeves On His Noir, Detective Mode Batman Movie

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesDuring a recent interview, Matt Reeves discussed his take on The Batman.

While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Reeves teased his Batman story, explaing that it’s going to be a “point of view-driven, noir Batman tale” that will show audiences why the Caped Crusader is the world’s greatest detective. Here’s the full quote:

“It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale. It’s told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It’s more Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, and that’s not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been. I’d love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it’s going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation.”

Ben Affleck was originally set to write and direct The Batman. He eventually stepped down and handed the duties to Matt Reeves, who’s been attached to the movie since February 2017. Warner Bros. reportedly wants to start shooting the project this November.

Plot details for the project are currently under wraps. The film is said to revolve around a young Batman and Matt Reeves has previously confirmed that it will not be directly based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic.

The Batman is one of many projects currently being developed by Warner Bros. and DC Films. The list also includes a Flash standalone film, Green Lantern CorpsBirds of PreyBlack AdamSuicide Squad 2NightwingSupergirlPlastic Man and New Gods.

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best

Previous1 of 10

Superhero Cinema 2018 Black Panther Avengers Thanos The Incredibles Aquaman2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.

Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.

Here are the theatrical superhero films of 2018, ranked from worst to best. You can start the gallery by clicking “Next.”
