The Batman film that will be directed by Reeves is intended to be a reboot of the franchise taking a “world’s greatest detective” angle. The Batman will not be tied with the existing films in the DC Extended Universe same as Todd Phillips’ Joker film.

“He’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, and that’s not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been,” Reeves stated. “I’d love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it’s going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation.”

The Batman is scheduled to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
