Matt Reeves Confirms ‘The Batman’ Is Ditching All Of Ben Affleck’s Script

In a recent podcast appearance, The Batman director Matt Reeves has confirmed that he has scrapped all that was completed of the original script.

When asked if he’d be going off of Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns’ script, Reeves replied:

“No. It’s a new story. It’s just starting again. I’m excited about it. I think it’s going to be really cool.”

All the talk we heard of Joe Manganiello playing Deathstroke and Arkham Asylum being a prominent setting is now down the drain, unless Reeves decides to bring it back in some way.
