With a new version of the Caped Cruasder on the way next year, Justice League director Zack Snyder opened up about his thoughts on The Batman and why he’s looking forward to watching Robert Pattinson don the cape and cowl. The director is gearing up for an appearance at the virtual Justice Con in just a few days time, but he recently spoke to Grace Randolph for Beyond The Trailer about his work on Justice League when the conversation briefly shifted to The Batman.
When Zack Snyder was asked about whether his Justice League is a part of the DC Extended Universe, the director explained that he’s proud of the way the franchise has branched off in new ways following the film, noting that he’s a producer on Wonder Woman 1984. But when it came to The Batman he took the time to praise director Matt Reeves as well as Robert Pattinson, explaining that he’s excited about the project because he’s a fan.
“You look at what like, Matt’s doing with Batman, by the way I’m super excited about that, I really… I think he’s an amazing filmmaker and I think this is great. And Robert’s cool, I just think it’s great. I’m a fan, so I’m excited.”
