Matt Reeves in final talks to direct Ben Affleck in ‘The Batman’

We heard that he was the favorite, and tonight it’s being reported that Warner Bros. has officially offered Matt Reeves the job to direct Ben Affleck in The Batman. Variety says that he has already agreed, so at this point we probably just need some signed paperwork to make it a done deal.

Earlier this month, a draft of The Batman script was turned in and Warner Bros. and Ben Affleck were reportedly “very happy” with it. With a script everyone loves, and now a director on board, things seem to be back on track for Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie!

Reeves is best known for directing Cloverfield, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. His is latest, War for the Planet of the Apes, will be out this summer.
