There is a new Batman movie in the making and a director for it could be announced soon. Ben Affleck was originally going to direct the movie 'The Batman' but has made way for 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' director Matt Reeves. Affleck said it was a tough decision to hand over the directing reins. He explained that he could not act in as well as direct the new Batman film. He said: "Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give. It has become clear that I cannot do both jobs to the level they require. Together with the studio, I have decided to find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film."
The movie industry magazine 'Variety' reports that Mr Reeves is in initial talks with the production company Warner Bros. to accept taking over as director. It is reported that Mr Affleck stepped down from the role late last month. Industry sources revealed that the studio has had multiple meetings with Reeves about becoming director. Mr Reeves is currently in post-production with his latest movie 'War for the Planet of the Apes,' which opens on July 14. Variety said it should be no problem for Reeves to take over as 'The Batman' director and that he will likely do so later this year. Filming was initially due to begin in May, as the script has already been written. However, it is now expected to begin later in 2017.

新《蝙蝠侠》电影剧本正在创作过程中，很快将宣布导演人选。新《蝙蝠侠》原本将由本·阿弗莱克执导，但是他让位给《猩球崛起:黎明之战》导演马特·里夫斯 。阿弗莱克表示，将导演的权利出让是非常艰难的决定 。他解释说，他不可能同时担任新影片的演员和导演 。他说：“扮演这个角色要求专注，激情和最好的演技 。很明显，我不可能同时将两项工作发挥到最佳水平 。我和工作室一道决定寻找搭档，和我一起完成这个鸿篇巨制 。”
权威电影杂志《综艺》报道称，里夫斯正与制片公司华纳兄弟进行初步讨论，接受接管导演职责。据报道，上月末阿弗莱克卸下导演职责 。电影界消息来源披露，工作室已经多次与里夫斯接洽导论导演的问题 。里夫斯目前正在进行最新电影《猩球崛起3:终极之战》的后期制作，影片将于7月14日上映 。《综艺》杂志表示，里夫斯担任《蝙蝠侠》的导演应该没有问题，他可能会于今年晚些时候上任 。拍摄过程原定于5月份开始，剧本已经开始改写 。然而，现在估计可能今年晚些时候才能开机 。
