DCEU fans have high expectations from the makers and the two biggest are definitely the future of Henry Cavill as Superman and Ben Affleck’s unmatched Batman movie. The latter has created a cult following for itself and at any time members can march up to the Warner Bros gate to demand the film. But as far as the people involved, Ben himself has made it clear that he is unwilling to make it. But that’s not stopping the world from talking about how cool it would be. The latest is The Batman director Matt Reeves.
After his multiple outings as Bruce Wayne in Zack Snyder’s vision of the DCEU, the world was finally ready for a standalone Affleck film in the form of the Cape Crusader. Ben also co-wrote the screenplay with Geoff Johns and was set to direct the film. But due to unknown reasons he suddenly decided to quit and the film was never made.
A few years later, Matt Reeves was hired to complete the project, but he decided not to go with Ben Affleck’s vision, but develop his own, which we saw Batman Starring Robert Pattinson. But turns out it’s not that Reeves didn’t like Affleck’s version. In a new conversation, he described it as an exciting vision. And below is all you need to know.
According to ComicBook, Matt Reeves was on a podcast where he decided to talk about a previous script for the Cape Crusader movie written by Ben. “The movie was originally going to be directed by Ben Affleck, and the script he sent me was written by Ben, but was rewritten by another very talented writer, and when I read it, I was like, ‘Oh, I get it,'” Reeves explained.
Matt Reeves continued, “It was a standalone Batman film that focused on Ben’s version of the character, but was more action-driven than what I thought I could do. I was inspired by the film as a filmmaker.” Wasn’t connected. It was very James Bond-ian; it was filled with a lot of set pieces. For someone else it might have been a very exciting film, but for me it was not.”
“Interesting, I think Ben Affleck He wasn’t so sure he wanted to do it because he eventually put Batman away from doing it together… probably because of the choices in his life at the time and what he wanted to do,” the Batman director concluded.
