Matt Reeves is famous for directing War for the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. In the past, he has made Cloverfield and Let Me In.

He took over from Ben Affleck in January 2017 and has been given a free rein to choose his own Bruce Wayne.

The upcoming Batman film releases on June 25, 2021.


Opinion: Alternative villains the film could've had

Fans have seen Catwoman and The Penguin multiple times. Even the Joker has been played by a number of actors over the years.

Batman, however, has some amazing villains that haven't prominently appeared on the big screen.

The film could have had Red Hood, Hush, Clayface, Black Mask, or the Court of Owls. These characters are fantastic and deserve to be on the screen!
