    Yep, surprised he mentioned Ego. Probably read that, not just flipped through pages to see cool pictures.

    Makes me think the movie will address the impact Bat's violent behaviour had on Gotham as well as Joker still being alive after Robin's death.

    I personally don't. I think a Batman who actually has to come back from breaking his rule has a lot of potential. We've seen alternate versions of Batman that killed, but we've never seen one who's had to seek redemption because of it. DCEU's Batman, if nothing else, has the potential to tell the story. And I personally think that could be a damn good one, if done right. If anyone could do it right? It'd probably be Matt Reeves.

    Ehhhhhhhhhh

    It could be interesting but I don’t know if it would be worth pulling anything from the previous movies.

    Start fresh

    Reuniting with an established batfamily is worth it.
    Every other cinematic iteration it's just here's sidekick 1 & 2 or he's who will pick up from where he left off.
    The Apes prequels would be less impacting without the people and apes Caesar bonds with.

    It was a dumb moment, no one's gonna try to deny that. But if we retired comic book characters for every bastardisation someone commits against the character? Daredevil and Spider-Man (in the comics) would've been long gone YEARS ago.

    Ego is excellent. Read it several years ago. I hope next time this is our Batman.

    Interesting would be too see how he would do and portrait villians like Poison Ivy, Man-Bat, Killer Croc(more mutated and croc like mutation maybe), Clayface , Deathstroke and Deatshot in one 2 hours and 30 minutes movie?
    (Imagine easter egg Cheetah in a cage before Wonder Woman 2)

    Or Batman, Flash, Cyborg , Dr Freeze, Pinguin, Capyain Cold and Killer Frost in one movie?

    How many dialogs, smal-talks, battles and funny moments could be done right?

    Hope that The Batman gets a better tittle?
    The Batman:Gotham Jungle?
    The Batman: Deathstroke?
    The Dark Knight: Winter Wars?

    After Superman I hope that Gotham gets invated by supernatural villians or that Batman goes to train the Flash and investigate something i Star city?

    To be fair, Affleck claimed the same. At this point I'm feeling like this is falling through too.

    Reeves has a passion for the project and he made it clear from the beginning that he needed freedom with this before he would sign on.
    There’s no reason reason for him to leave.

    He’s also doing more than Affleck ever did.
    He doesn’t have to reply to tweets from fans about Batman.
    But he does.

    It’s simply not the same as Afflecks bs
