The Hollywood Reporter says that Warner Bros. is working on a way to “gracefully” address the fact that Affleck is no longer Batman in an upcoming DC Comics movie.
Reeves was a guest on MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast and host Josh Horowitz asked if he was going to be working off of Ben Affleck and Geoff John’s original script. “No,” Reeves replied. “It’s a new story. It’s just starting again. I’m excited about it. I think it’s going to be really cool.”
Matt Reeves has already expressed that Warner Bros. is “really excited” about his idea for The Batman, and in a new interview today with Uproxx he explained that he was given assurances that he could make the movie his way.
While promoting his new movie Dunkirk, which hits theaters on July 21, Christopher Nolan confirmed that he’s remastering his previous movies (such as the Dark Knight Trilogy) in 4K.

In a new interview with Fandango, Reeves was asked if he sees The Batman as the start of a possible trilogy. The short answer is “yes”, but check out his full explanation in the quotes below.
“It’s my hope to tell a very emotional Batman story,” Reeves told Yahoo Movies while promoting War for the Planet of the Apes, “and I do see a very strong parallel between [Batman and Caesar] because they’re both damaged characters who are grappling to the do the right thing in a very imperfect world. A […]
“I certainly hope so. Let’s put it this way. I’ve never worked with them but my experience with them so far has been really good. As I describe what I want to do, they seem really excited. So its the beginning of a journey.”
“There’s a chance to do an almost noir driven, detective version of Batman that is point-of-view driven in a very very powerful way, that will hopefully connect you to what’s going on inside of his head,” Reeves said.
Just a few weeks after DC Films producer Charles Roven said he had “every expectation” that Ben Affleck would star in The Batman, director Matt Reeves confirmed that Affleck is still in the starring role. Check it out in his own words in the Getty interview below.

When Affleck decided not to direct THE BATMAN and Matt Reeves stepped in, I think people were afraid that Ben may not reprise the role. Is there any fear of that?
