Matt Reeves is no stranger to trilogies, having directed two of the three rebooted Planet of the Apes movies. 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.
“I have ideas about an arc, but really, the important thing is just to start… you have to start with one,” he said. “You know, you have to start with a story that begins something.”
Reeves says that it’s important to get the first story right, but that there’s an ambition for a series of Batman stories.
“And when Mark and I began [Dawn of the Planet of the Apes], we knew what our goals were, but we didn’t know how we were gonna get there, and I would say that that more relates to the way that I see a Batman story, is a kind of ambition for a series of stories, but really the most important thing is gonna be to tell a vital first story.”
