Andy Muschietti Confirmed As Director Of The Brave And The Bold DCU Batman Movie

writers can now be hired for projects such as Batman: Brave and the Bold, which currently has a director, but no writer.

You’ve heard all the rumors already, so this will be no surprise at all, but The Flash director Andy Muschietti is now confirmed as director of The Brave and the Bold. The first DCU Batman movie will be a reboot of the character, just like with James Gunn’s Superman: Legacy. Muschietti was heavily rumored to the point where bookies would not be taking bets on it. However, there is a tier system to all this, so when Variety reports it, it’s basically confirmed.

I mean, they also have quotes from James Gunn confirming it. However, even if they didn’t, you know?

Muschietti, behind this weekend’s superhero release “The Flash,” will direct “Batman: The Brave and the Bold.” The project is based on the comic series authored by Grant Morrison, who Gunn called “exceptionally influential” on in the DC Universe in January. The comics imagine a “Bat family,” where Bruce Wayne’s biological son Damian serves as Robin to his dad’s Batman. Muschietti’s sister and creative partner Barbara will produce the project via their label Double Dream, alongside Gunn and Safran.

“We saw ‘The Flash’; even before taking the reins at DC Studios, and knew we were in the hands of not only a visionary director but a massive DC fan,” Gunn and Safran told Variety of Muschietti. “It’s a magnificent film – funny, emotional, thrilling – and Andy’s affinity and passion for these characters and this world just resonates through every frame. So, when it came time to find a director for ‘The Brave and the Bold,’ there was really only one choice. Luckily, Andy said yes. Barbara signed on to produce with us and we were on our way. They’re an extraordinary team, and we couldn’t have better or more inspiring partners as we embark on this thrilling new adventure in the DCU.”

Variety confirms that as yet, there is no screenwriter attached to The Brave and the Bold. I’m guessing part of that is because no one can really sign up for a project during the WGA strike. My guess is they do have someone already. However, it will only be announced once the WGA strike is settled, if it gets settled?

What do you think then as The Flash director Andy Muschietti is now confirmed as director of The Brave and the Bold? What are your hopes for the first DCU Batman movie? Thoughts below as always.
