Filmmaker Matt Reeves dropped some juicy morsels about his next project, Warner Bros.' next solo Batman movie, while promoting his new release, War for the Planet of the Apes.

In a chat with New Trailer Buzz (via Batman-News), Reeves explained that he was as much of a fan of the DC superhero as a child as he was of the Planet of the Apes film series. Reeves also drew comparisons between the Dark Knight and the protagonist of the new Apes trilogy, Caesar.

"I see a parallel, emotionally, between Caesar and Batman in that they're both characters who are tortured and trying to sort of grapple within themselves to find a way to do the right thing in a very imperfect, and to some degree corrupt, world," said Reeves. "And so it's really that emotionality that I'm interested in."




He added, "I want to do a very point of view-driven -- you know, this film and with all films what I try to do in an almost Hitchcockian sense is to use the camera and use the storytelling so that you become the character and you empathize with that point of view, and I think there's a chance to do an almost Noir-driven, detective version of Batman that is point-of-view-driven in a very, very powerful way that hopefully is going to connect you to what’s going on inside of his head and inside of his heart."

Reeves also recently confirmed Ben Affleck, who had previously been attached to direct the Batman solo film, is still aboard to play his Caped Crusader. He added that he is only just getting started on working on the Batman movie now that he's done with War for the Planet of the Apes.

This couldn't be posted in the Affleck Batman film thread because....

I'm curious regardless of this possible direction.

The movie is going to be great. Matt Reeves Planet of the Apes movies are critically acclaimed and he knows Batman well.

I suspect this will be the best Batman movie ever made, or at least the best since Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.
