Last month director Matt Reeves said he would be turning in the first draft of his script for The Batman. The word out of DC Films was that Reeves was aiming for after Labor Day to turn in his script draft. Now word has come down that Matt Reeves has turned in his script for The Batman not too long ago.
Now with the script on the desk for Warner Bros. executives, casting news might be coming soon. Last week it was reported by DC Comics News that Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington was currently on the studio’s radar to play Batman. Not only that but it has been rumored that Reeves has hopes of beginning production of The Batman in the early summer of 2019.
Not many details have come out about The Batman, but chatter out of DC Films is that The Penguin was eyed to be the main villain of the film and that Reeves wants the movie to be a POV noir focused Batman story that would take place early in Batman’s career as Gotham’s main vigilante crime fighter.
From the early rumbles this seems to be a different story about Batman as viewers are mostly used to the “Gotham in chaos, punch evil in the face very hard” style of Batman stories.
