A new Batman movie is coming. Ben Affleck was going to direct it but changed his mind. The new director might be Matt Reeves. Affleck said it was a tough decision but he could not act in and direct 'The Batman'. He said: "Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give….I cannot do both jobs to the level they require….I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film."
The movie industry magazine 'Variety' says Mr Reeves is talking to the production company Warner Bros. They have had several meetings. Reeves is currently finishing his latest Planet of the Apes movie. Variety said it would be no problem for him to take over as 'The Batman' director. The script is finished and filming was going to start in May. However, it is now expected to begin later in the year.
