Matt Reeves ‘Planet of the Apes’ Offered Director Position For ‘The Batman’

By now you’ve probably heard that Ben Affleck stepped down from directing The Batman last week, and as expected, rumors began to take his place. Dennis Villeneuve and Ridley Scott were rumored to be the some of the choices, but now we have confirmation that Matt Reeves, director of ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ and the upcoming ‘War for the Planet of the Ape’s, has been offered the job by Warner Brothers.


Tons of fans were disappointed that Ben Affleck dropped out of directing the film, but I personally think it is a smart choice. Aflleck is is still playing Batman as well as writing and producing the film. Affleck will still be able to see his vision come to life. I think  Reeves definitely has what it takes to create an amazing movie.

What do you think of this choice? Let is know in the comments below! Stay Lit
