When asked if he was going to be using the script originally put together by Ben Affleck and DC’s Geoff Johns, Reeves replied, “No, it’s a new story. It’s just starting again. I’m excited about it. I think it’s going to be really cool.”
Reeves went on to qualify that, despite signing on to helm The Batman after Ben Affleck stepped down from directing duties, he’s been otherwise focused purely on his work on War for the Planet of the Apes and there’s nothing further to report on The Batman at this stage.
