Yesterday an interview with director Matt Reeves surfaced where he said that The Batman would be a “standalone” movie that “isn’t part of the extended universe”. As you could imagine, it left fans scratching their heads. Thankfully the social media savvy director has taken to Twitter today to clear up his comments.

“Just to be clear: Of COURSE Batman will be part of the D.C. Universe,” Reeves tweeted. He went on to say that what he meant was The Batman will just focus on Batman, it won’t included cameos from other DC characters or service other stories. It’s going to be a pure, standalone Batman movie.
