    I hope Reeves returns; IMO, he was the best out of the directors that were in the running.

    WB/DC Films should look at James Mangold to direct the next Batman movie after wha He did with Logan.

    Sounds about right. Fall to Winter 2017 will be casting and pre-production. Then I would think they're still on track to start filming Spring 2018 for a 2019 release. September 27, 2019 or November 1, 2019 are open but Batman movies have always been a summer release and right now the second JL movie is June 2019 (and Shazam is April). And I imagine the schedule's gonna change because of Flash. We're like a year away from its March date and it still in limbo.

    The movie is now being rewritten from scratch. The article seems to be saying that Affleck and Johns are writing Terrio's draft, but I could be reading into it wrong. Matt Reeves could also potentially be the new writer, we don't know.

    I hope they take their time and not rushing it.

    Since production doesn't start until next year, that gives them plenty of time to write a quality script. :)

    If this report is true (a big 'if') then all previous drafts are being discarded and the team is starting over from the beginning.

    It wouldn't surprise me if that were true. There's a new director on the movie, and Reeves is enough of a name director that he will have enough power to take the movie in a new direction. It's not like they hired Marc Webb or someone like that.

    I don't think that's a good sign when the guy playing Commissioner Gordon is unsure if he'll be in a Batman movie or any movie going forward :sweat:.

    Unless they're Pat Hingle :p.

    Granted, being unsure seems like the default response to the DCEU these days, even with Reeves on board :shrug:.

    Things will change if Wonder Woman breaks the billion dollar mark. If the bad criticism continues on both that and JL, expect them to probably back off of this DCEU.

    3/19: Actors are the last to know. No big deal, imo. It's a transition period -- no one really knows.

    5/23: Rumor is Reeves wants to incorporate a lot of villains like Deathstroke, Joker, and Scarecrow.
