THE BATMAN’s Matt Reeves Admits He’s Thinking About A Trilogy But Stresses The Importance Of The First Film

Matt Reeves continue to say all the right things when he caused DC fanboys to all agree with his statements regarding a desire to do a noir, detective-driven version of The Dark Knight. Fandango asked if he had plans for a Batman trilogy starring Ben Affleck. Reeves admitted he’s thought about it but he doesn’t want to put the horse before the carriage.

I have ideas about an arc, but really, the important thing is just to start… you have to start with one.  You know, you have to start with a story that begins something.

Reeves is out promoting War for the Planet of the Apes so he brought the discussion back to his current film.

And when [screenwriter] Mark [Bomback] and I began [Dawn of the Planet of the Apes], we knew what our goals were, but we didn’t know how we were gonna get there, and I would say that more relates to the way that I see a Batman story, is a kind of ambition for a series of stories, but really the most important thing is gonna be to tell a vital first story.

The Batman currently doesn’t have a release doesn’t have a release date but hopefully, we can expect something new in San Diego this month at Comic-Con.
