During a San Diego Comic-Con panel, composer Michael Giacchino hinted at what fans can expect from Matt Reeves’ The Batman based on what he has seen.

Michael Giacchino has collaborated with Matt Reeves on each of the director’s feature films since Cloverfield, causing fans to wonder if the composer will be tapped to write the music for The Batman. Of course, Michael Giacchino could not comment on this subject, though he did reveal that he’s seen some of what Matt Reeves has been working on for The Batman.

Again, Michael Giacchino was slim on the details, though he did assure fans that what he’s seen from Matt Reeves’ The Batman is “amazing”:

“Matt [Reeves] and I worked on Planet of the Apes together, we made Cloverfield. Matt is really big, Matt’s amazing. So, Matt wanted me to tell you that he’s working very hard to make a good movie… I’ve actually been able to see a few things that he’s showed me that he’s working on and it’s pretty darn awesome. It looks really, really amazing.”

As for the question of whether he will compose the score for The Batman or not, Michael Giacchino stated he did not know but commended Matt Reeves for his hard work on the project:

“I don’t know. We’ll see. I just know that my friend is working really hard right now. Anyway, I’ll say that.”

Plot details for The Batman are currently under wraps. Previous rumors once pointed to an earlier version of the script featuring Ben Affleck bookending the film as his current Batman while the film introduced a younger version of the iconic DC Comics hero, played by Robert Pattinson. But with Ben Affleck retired from the role, Pattinson has officially replaced the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justiceand Justice League star as the DC Extended Universe’’s Bruce Wayne.

While details are slim, The Batman helmer Matt Reeves has confirmed that his project is not based on Frank Miller’’s acclaimed Year One comic and will emphasize the hero as the world’s greatest detective more than previous films have in the past. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new movie trilogy with Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader.

The Batman will be released in theaters on June 25, 2021.
