Matt Reeves Hopes ‘The Batman’ Movie Shows You Something New

We've had many Batman movies over the years and we've seen Bruce Wayne's parents die numerous times.

The director for 'The Batman', Matt Reeves, is hoping that his vision of the caped crusader should show a different side to the character that we have not seen before on the big screen.

Reeves was talking with Variety recently about his vision for The Batman which will star Ben Affleck in the starring role.

He's hoping that fans have a strong connection to the character the same way he did with Caesar in both Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes.

You can read his comments below.

To see a Batman story that is hopefully new. Something you haven't seen before where you have an emotional identification with him that's very strong. Kind of like a noir Batman.

It has been reported in the past that the movie is going to be a film noir and we will see more of Batman's detective skills.

We've only partially seen Batman's detective skills in previous films, although most of the time it was action orientated.

A fresh take on Batman can be done since Marvel managed to deliver something fresh with Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Some people were scared that Homecoming would tread familiar ground, but thankfully it offered something new for fans to sink their teeth into.

Reeves is debuting War for the Planet of the Apes this week worldwide so it might be a long time until we see The Batman on the big screen. The movie's production has been patchy with Ben Affleck dropping out as director and the original script reportedly being scrapped and more.

Hopefully the film can turn out good despite the many setbacks.
