For better or worse, Matt Reeves’ The Batman has been taking its dear sweet team — or maybe it just feels that way because we’ve been waiting YEARS for this even before he hopped on board. Given the state of the DC Extended Universe, seeds of doubt began to get planted that we’d ever get to see this movie. Would The Batman survive another director?

Well, it sounds like we’re hearing the first inklings of progress with the film, according to the outlet Batman on Film. The outlet states that “they” (and I’m assuming he means the studio and Matt Reeves) are started to hire people to work on the film, meaning that they could be approaching pre-production very soon. Could this mean we could get the film in front of cameras in 2019? With that in mind, 2020 suddenly feels like a very real possibility.

But, as with all rumors, be sure to take this with a grain of salt. The outlet doesn’t really seem to be incredibly confident in their sources, as the writing utilized in the piece is incredibly distancing (Words like “I’ve been told,” putting quotes around “they,” and the caveat that it’s all subject to change). That being said, regardless of any distancing language, it’s always wise not to trust every rumor thrown our way.

However, if true, I’m sure we’ll get confirmations in the coming months, and if so, it will be quite the beacon to look forward to in either 2020 or 2021. What do you think of this latest rumor? Sound off down below!
