Matt Reeves has been officially confirmed as the director for The Batman.
Matt Reeves had this to say about the news:
I loved the Batman story since I was a child. He is such an iconic and compelling character, and one that resonates with me deeply. I am incredibly honored and excited to be working with Warner Bros. to bring an epic and emotional new take on the Caped Crusader to the big screen.
This is good. Although a confirmed release date would fill us with more hope.
