The Batman delayed, rumors that the screenplay may be rewritten from scratch

0

Hello first draft my old friend

The Batman seemed back on track when Matt Reeves signed on to direct the film. Maybe, just maybe, things would be looking up for the new solo Batman film and the DCEU as a whole.

Scratch that. There's been another setback.

According to a tweet from Justin Kroll of Variety, Reeves is committed to work on War for the Planet of the Apes through June. (The film comes out July 14.) That means Reeves wouldn't come on board The Batman until the second half of 2017, which could push actual production back to 2018.

In addition, there are rumors that the screenplay for The Batman will be rewritten from scratch by Reeves and his team. The first version of the script was co-written by Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns, with additional work by Chris Terrio. It's unclear if any elements from the first screenplay will be retained in the new version.

A while back we noted that the second Justice League film would be delayed until the completion of The Batman. Now I'm not so sure. The DCEU remains in flux. But maybe Reeves and the crew taking time to make a good movie rather than rushing out some product will be for the best.
