Well, after months and months of almost nothing, the last couple days have been flooded with news about Matt Reeves’ upcoming film, The Batman. We learned earlier in the week that Reeves’ film is goig to focus on an aspect of the character that may have been pushed aside, that Batman is a really, really, good detective, some may even say he is the world’s greatest.
Reeves also mentioned that his film will feature a gallery of rogues, as far as the villains are concerned. Today comes news that Reeves’ initial script was 160 pages long. Going by the old rule of one script page equals one minute, the film would clock in at about two-and-a half hours.
Don’t freak out just yet, as Reeves is said to be editing and revising the script. Personally as long as it’s well paced and has a good flow, I can handle a two-and-a-half house film, though it’s understandable why a film of that length may make the studio apprehensive.
Fans first heard news of this film a few years ago, when Ben Affleck was going to write, direct, and star in the film. That proved to be a heavy burden and Affleck stepped down from writing and directing, but was set to still play the Dark Knight. Matt Reeves then came aboard the project to take over writing and directing and Affleck’s status as the film’s star was on again, off again, until news came down yesterday that Affleck is out as the Bat, and fans will be getting a new Caped Crusader.
