Hey, ladies and gents! Are you ready for another big update on Matt Reeves’ The Batman? Like DC Films and Warner Bros.’ Flashpoint film, The Batman is a movie that’s gone through countless iterations and obstacles over the course of its development.

As many of you already know, it was a film that was announced with Ben Affleck in the leading role. While he wasn’t initially pegged as the director of the film, many thought it was inevitable that he would hop on board…and they were right! After a while, Warner Bros. did indeed confirm that they intended to bring Affleck on board to help write and direct the project. But that didn’t last long.

On the heels of Batman v Superman, Affleck seemingly began to distance himself from the DC Extended Universe, and after being wishy-washy about the whole deal, he eventually stepped down as director. In his place, War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves took over. It’s been quite some time since we had an update from him. One Twitter user took to the social media platform to ask Reeves for one, and Reeves responded with:

“Really, really well, thanks! I could not be more excited! 🦇”

Oh…that’s it? Okay, then. That’s kind of a non-news item. Not sure what I was expecting, but I suppose that’s better than getting no update at all. When it comes to DC Films, no news is actually usually bad news. Before long, we’ll have blown past the originally-planned production date, and then we’ll be reminiscing about that time we thought there would be a Batman film.

So in this case, non-news is good news.
