Director Matt Reeves has shared his plans for The Batman standalone film, featuring Ben Affleck as the caped crusader.
The 52-year-old director said that the new film will not be based on one single comic book and that the first draft of the script will be completed in the next few weeks.
“We’re not doing any particular (comic). ‘Year One’ is one of the many comic books that I love. We are definitely not doing ‘Year One’,” Reeves told agencies.
Reeves said the film will be focused on Batman’s personal story.
“It’s just exciting to be focused very specifically on a tale that is defining for him and very personal to him. Obviously we’re not doing an origin tale or anything like that,” he said.
“We’re doing a story that is definitively Batman though and trying to tell a story that’s emotional and yet is really about him being the world’s greatest detective and all the things that for me, since I was a kid, made me love Batman,” he added.
Reeves said that Affleck “is still involved” but that it was too early to talk in which capacity.
