Looks like The Bat Signal is officially going to shine in Matt Reeves' direction, as the "Cloverfield" and upcoming "War for the Planet of the Apes" director has officially confirmed that he is the director for the upcoming solo Batman film that Warner Bros. is making for their DC Extended Universe, which is tentatively titled "The Batman".
According to Batman-News.com, Reeves confirmed his involvement in a press statement released, which strangely doesn't mention Ben Affleck in it. Affleck, who was formerly attached to direct, write, and reprise his role as Batman in the solo film, stepped back from his duties as director for "The Batman" to concentrate on his performance instead. While it may just have skipped mentioning his name, he is still the Caped Crusader for DC Films, and is set to appear in "Justice League" later this year.
The Batman has no release date scheduled yet.
