Matt Reeves To Meet James Gunn To Discuss Future Of ‘The Batman’ Universe

Rumors and speculation abound when it comes to the future of DC Studios. Fortunately, the people on the inside are chatterboxes, so we have an idea what’s real and what’s not. In a recent interview with Collider, The Batman director Matt Reeves said he’ll be meeting with James Gunn to discuss the Batverse and how it fits into the DC multi-year plan…

“The Batverse thing, as James has said, and as Peter has said, is kind of its own thing they’re letting us do,” Reeves said.

There has been some idea out there that we could see the Robert Pattinson version of Batman become part of Gunn and Safran’s plan for the DCU. Reeves has a lot going on in his corner of the Batverse, though, with both The Penguin and Arkham Asylum shows on the way for HBO Max. As of now, Reeves can continue to do his work adjacent to anything else that’s going on with DC. And that’s just how he wants it…

“I had this dream for the way I wanted that to play out and that’s part of what I’m going to be talking to them about in a few weeks. They’re going to be talking to me about what they’re doing in their ten-year plan or certainly what’s in the near future as well so that we can understand that we’re not—it’s air traffic control—we don’t want to be crashing into each other. We want to support each other. I’m super excited. I’m really excited to hear about what they’re doing and to be working with them. It’s going to be cool,” Reeves added.
