Finally The Batman would be well-served part of the DCU

When we reported on his comments yesterday we noted that being a separate film may give Reeves more creative leeway, but that can also be achieved if he only has to worry about The BATMAN's character within the universe, but no one else's. And, in particular, of The Batman following statements from Matt Reeves there are a few who announced that his film would not be part of the expanded universe of the firm. "Batman will be BATMAN..." Or: it could just mean that Matt Reeves is making a Batman movie that won't be burdened by world-building or Justice League cameos.

The film is now being written by Reeves, and production should be underway in 2018 with Ben Affleck part of the movie as the lead of Batman/ Bruce Wayne. Now that Matt Reeves is taking over as director, many changes have occurred, leaving fans wondering what they can expect from The Batman.

It's been a hell of a week for the DC movieverse-with the news that Warner Bros is also launching a banner for DC movies that are not part of the continuity of the DC Extended Universe.

Additionally, the project falls within Warners' main line of movies based on their DC properties.

Warner Bros. hasn't made any official announcements yet. He confirmed on Twitter that The Batman will still take place in the DC universe.

Establishing a cohesive cinematic universe which allows multiple big-name characters to coexist continues to exist as a big recent staple in movie culture. The War for the Planet of the Apes director made some minor clarifications Thursday on Twitter. The report also says that the movie is meant to be an origin story and not an iteration of earlier movies with the Joker. Well the movie's director has put all your worries away. And it could be a simple way of letting Affleck leave the role he seems eager to be done with after Justice League. But he's not going to do that movie, I don't think.

The Batman is now in development and does not have a release date.

Well, you're never gonna believe this, but it turns out that The Batman will definitely be a part of the DC extended universe. But it could be that Warner and Reeves are hoping to return to the one-chapter format with The Batman, instead of using it as a jumping off point for never-ending sequels.
